Hey all. Will be traveling to Carlsbad on vacation and want to fly my Mavic Air along the beaches (when no others are around).

I see that Mc Clellan-Palomar (CRQ) airport is in the vicinity. And checking the FAA’s UAS map and a few other apps it appears I will be looking to fly in controlled airspace. Class D and class E4 is the best I can gather.

Saw on the FAA’s website that Mc Clellan-Palomar airport is listed as actively taking part in LAANC (Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability).   Through the FAA Drone Zone portal I believe I was able to enter a request to fly in the area.

Wondering if others have had success with this approach?

I see others have called the tower at CRQ in the past but from what I can gather the FAA is pushing to use the LAANC to lessen the call volumes to the airports.

Thank you. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
