Could use a little clarifacation on the Airspace in Lemon Grove, CA.  On a the old version of the FAA Airspace App it's only a yellow advisory but when you use the B4 U Fly App is says restrcited - Class B Airspace.  I also called the KSAN-San Diego Inernational to speak with the tower and they gave me the go ahead saying it was Class G Airspace.
  I'm flying in from Minnesota and want to make sure I can fly the site and would like to be able to assure my boss we are all set.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Ryan

Aloha Ryan,

     A voice on the phone beats the B4 U Fly every time.  That B4 U Fly app moves the Class D airspace line from my house to a half mile up into the mountain - as I am walking!

     You seem to have your bases covered.  Call again the day before your flight to confirm.

     Hope this helps!

Aloha and Drone On!

According to DJI  http://www.dji.com/flysafe/geo-map Lemon Grove IS in a "Warning Zone", but NOT in an "Enhanced Warning Zone".
The difference is :

Warning Zones. In these Zones, which may not necessarily appear on the DJI GO map, users will be prompted with a warning message that may be relevant to their flight.
Example Warning Zone: A protected wildlife area.

Enhanced Warning Zones. In these Zones, you will be prompted by GEO at the time of flight to unlock the zone using the same steps as in an Authorization Zone, but you do not require a verified account or an internet connection at the time of your flight.
Example Enhanced Warning Zone: A farm which is 3 miles away from a busy international airport.
So, in theory, you should be good.

Thank you for responding!  I'm taking the tower approach from now on.  Let you know how things go.

Thanks for the quick response!  Just want to have my bases covered, if the project goes well it means warm work for us in the Winter!  The tower approach seems to be working for some of our contractors as well.

Thanks again.
