An Aerial View of the Manchester Millyard

We’ve been wanting to capture some visuals of the historic Manchester Millyard for quite a while but time and airspace restrictions have held us back. And, because we pride ourselves on operating legally and not violating FAA regulations as so many others do, we were determined to wait until we had full ATC approval for the shots we were looking to capture. We finally carved out some time in July to get this done and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results!

Although 603 Drones, LLC holds a Wide Area Authorization (WAA) for the Class C airspace around Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, there are areas within the downtown area that Air Traffic Control has limited to a literal 0′ altitude ceiling for drone flights. In order to fly within those sections of downtown, you must receive additional approval above and beyond even an existing WAA. So, after working through the LAANC (Low-Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability) system via to request and receive that approval, we were ready to go.

Rather than espouse on all the technical details involved in operating our equipment within this controlled airspace, we thought we’d simply share with you some of the footage we captured of the Manchester Millyard. So, without further ado…enjoy!

P.S. You’ll want your volume up for full enjoyment….
