Also from Hickory area. Don’t a lot of these fall in restricted airspace except for the NE area closer to the Conover side? Any other suggestions for areas you’ve found interesting around town?Boating inputs or accesses around the lakes shouldn't give you any problems for flying as long as they're not in controled airspace. I live in Hickory and I fly at all of the boating inputs on Lake hickory without any problems.
I have 107, just recently obtained. I was going to file for waiver/authorization but with LAANC starting in September don’t see the point. Working on a night waiver now. Was denied for first one.If you're part 107 then you need an authorization before flying within hickory's class D airspace
