(Refer to Figure 26, area 4.) You have been hired to inspect the tower under construction at 46.9N and 98.6W, near Jamestown Regional (JMS). What must you receive prior to flying your unmanned aircraft in this area?
A) Authorization from the military
B) Authorization from ATC
C) Authorization from the National Park Service
The answer to this question is B.
When a tower is under construction, you’ll see “UC” text next to the icon, so finding the tower icon to identify its location and height should be relatively straightforward as you’re given the exact latitude and longitudinal coordinates. It sits about 6 SM southeast (mostly east) of Jamestown Regional (JMS) airport.
This tower sits inside a magenta-dotted figure that’s entirely closed off, which indicates lateral Class E surface airspace. And of the different types of Class E airspace, this is the one where you’d need to request prior airspace authorization to operate here.
