    Don't care and no going to comply. The last thing we need is one more list to be on. We can pick and choose the rules/laws we feel like recognizing these days, so this is one for me; come take it down.

    No, flight plans for ag spraying operations are not mandatory. The FAA has only imposed fines/sanctions for failing submit flight operation plans for applications over "Congested Areas".

    For rural areas, including single houses, widely spaced houses or individual farms, no plans are required. In these cases the pilot may fly below 1,000ft and 500ft while making approaches and departures to the field while actually spraying.

    Ruined the land? How? They're beautiful, and the land underneath them can be used for other purposes.

    Here we go again, MORE government control over our lives, one small bite at a time!
    What else are we going to allow, how many more bites will we need to suffer, before we put a complete end to this brain dead power grabbing?
    More laws, more regulation...it NEVER ENDS! Once they get their foot in the door, the elephant soon follows!
    Oh I know, the bleeding hearts will champion anything the government does, as it is for \our\ safety...as well as those fees they will sneak in as well.
    Doesn't anybody see what is truly going on?
    The complete and total control of every aspect of everything we do, all dictated to by a crtiminal federal government...USURPATION is a treasonous crime, and it is time WE take back our powers from those that abuse ours!

    Absolutely. Why are they trying to stop airplanes from crashing into towers? Why, the public enjoy a good crash; the more people killed the better! Nothing better than a juicy story about a little girl with a heart failure being medevaced by helicopter being killed at night.

    Government: "Stop interfering with the right to crash airplanes and kill innocent bystanders!" Harrumph.

    Height restrictions around airports are defined by the FAA in CFR 14 Part 77 as Runway Protection Zones or "RPZ's."

    https://www.hud.gov/sites/documents/AIRPORTDIVISION.PDF


    Most state and local municipalities follow the FAA guidelines.

    When an airport entity wants to lengthen the runway that entity must have the proper Land Use and Zoning regulations codified in their Zoning regulations before any Federal or State funding can be issued.


    Each change in the zoning regulations require three "Readings," or three public notices and discussion.

    I know this because I am on the Airport Commission and a pilot and the whole process is slow and a pain in the jumpseat. We just went through the process for our local airport.

    Please read the fine print in the FAA tower regulations as there are many explicit and inferred exceptions.

    Yeah, this is a non-issue. It doesn't apply to most amateur towers and would not seem that hard to comply with even where it does. It's not a lighting requirement which would be a lot more expensive and difficult.
