Not me. I fly across the street from my house. Big open park to fly out of. I'd sell it all if I had to call first.

I used to fly at a neat cow pasture airport that a small town owned in Kansas. there was a group of 5 guys who used to fly there. To make a long story short some full size pilot called the FAA and turned us in for flying at this airport. The FAA banned us from flying there. There where only two Active pilots with airplanes out there at the time. Now if you want to fly you have proof of your home owners insurance and have a portable radio to listen for incoming flights which was rare.

Was at the new AMA expo , old wram show over weekend in NJ
taking to the AMA guys , by being an AMA member it seems that all
that is needed is you just have to call and tell them you are flying in the area and its not asking permission and they can't deny you .
Said the best thing was if your flying zone is in an area that's under quarantine
to go see em in person and get a letter stating you have permission to fly in the area .
Seems the only way we are going to gain our airspace back is even though may seem a hassle but call your airfield each and every time . If enough calls in a friendly manner are received daily and no problems are occurring it will be them telling the FAA of the burden of all these non issue required phone calls are not helping their airport operations .
So that said join the Academy of Model Aeronautics
and fly free
