I checked out a VFR sectional and apparently there is a small private airport near my house with a 10 mile class D radius. Interesting that I never knew it existed as I have never witnessed an aircraft take off from there (I'm not in the flight path), but because it exists it would be illegal for me to build a little micro and fly it around below the treeline. The only reason an aircraft would be within 400ft of the farm I live on is if it is crashing, in which case a UMX RC plane would be inconsequential. This is very frustrating, I live on an island with one bridge and in order to clear all class C and D airspace I would have to drive 45 mins (1:30 round trip) just to fly. Does anyone else here have a similar problem, or have any tips or experience obtaining authorization to fly in class D?
