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.
