I’d like to take a few recreational pictures/video of my sisters sailboat at 28 Constitution Road, Boston, MA but, it appears I need to get FAA permission. I’d be flying no higher than 75 feet (to clear the sail) and the boat would be docked.

What is the easiest way to obtain permission to fly for about an hour in that location?

I’d really appreciate answers from anyone who actually has successfully gone through the process. I have B4ufly and kittyhawk app.

That address does not show up on any map I can find.

With a '0' in the square, LAANC automated authorization is not available. And coordination is not available for recreational flyers.

I don't see it happening for you.

Yep. As I predicted a few posts back.

Those 0’ grids are real buggers.....I’ve been denied more than approved....and I’m running a business. Still, there are just some spots they’re not going to allow a flight.

Seems the easy thing to do would be move the boat to another location..
