Did you just buy a new drone or already have a drone, but don't know what the proper procedures are for operating it because you live near the airport?
Well, operating your drone is a simple procedure, depending on the drone's mission. First, I would make sure that your drone is registered on the website of the Federal Administration of Aviacion (FAA) in FAA DroneZone. If you want to use your drone for business opportunities or some kind of compensation, then the remote operator would need a Remote Pilot License from the Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), "Part 107 License". If you wish to fly your drone for recreational use (see the FAA website for the definition of recreational use), then you do not need to have a 'Part 107 License'.
Now to fly your drone, the FAA must grant you authorization through the LAANC system or the FAA DroneZone website and fly with some restrictions as there may be aircraft in the area. As Salinas Municipal Airport is a Class 'D' classified airport and the Air Traffic Control Tower grants authorizations from the ground surface up to 2499 feet of medium sea level (MSL). The operator is required to have a two-way radio communication device that is able to monitor nearby traffic and communicate with the Air Traffic/Traffic Control Tower. If you need additional information, at the citios below you will have more information about flying drones or you can contact the Airport Administration Office for further assistance.
