Accidentally Flying Paramotor in a Military Controlled Airspace!!

Always check your NOTAMS… It slipped my mind twice. But to be perfectly honest, I still would have flown there based on what that NOTAM said. It didn’t designate the airspace any differently than what it usually is – Class G. I’m guessing that was a miscommunication with the airport and the military. No biggie because they were kind enough to let us know and offer a solution.

Even if you’re flying from a field 2 miles away from a class G airport, check that airport’s NOTAMS. They could do what happened in this video and set up a temporary class D airspace with a 5 nautical mile ring which now puts your field in an area you can’t fly in without getting approval from the controlling authority.

Part 103.17 Operations in certain airspace:

No person may operate an ultralight vehicle within Class A, Class B, Class C, or Class D airspace or within the lateral boundaries of the surface area of Class E airspace designated for an airport unless that person has prior authorization from the ATC facility having jurisdiction over that airspace.

    They were so chill and professional. No need to get the FAA involved and get you in real legal trouble. Just a little "hey it’s NOTAMd"

  10. Plain Simp X on April 4, 2021 at 1:07 am

    They appeared to be really cool about it. They could have been real hard with you.

  11. Reynaldo Rivera on April 4, 2021 at 1:07 am

  42. Quentin Upshaw on April 4, 2021 at 1:45 am

    class d is cool. Class b on the other hand is GTA 6 star level

  43. Darren-Edward Oneill on April 4, 2021 at 1:48 am

    This is the problem with these new aerial vehicles that any dummy can buy and operate – paraglider and drones are the biggest threat to aviation there ever was. We had a near miss with two paragliders at altitude in a well know TMA no comms no transponders obviously, those canopies are big and bright but at 240Kt indicated you don’t see them, there would have been multiple fatalities and a very public case had we not deviated drastically from our set heading and altitude for these chaps. Just the fact that he asked during a Norma period of military operations if he could get an exception to continue to operate unsafely says everything you need to know, these guys were exceptionally friendly, the CAA would have prosecuted criminally no questions asked here or the military would have taken both into custody.

  44. SCP foundation MTF on April 4, 2021 at 1:49 am

    Did someone say class D

  45. kevin silva on April 4, 2021 at 1:49 am
