Flying here is (surprisingly) legal

The Hudson River Special Flight Rules Area is an incredible thing: unrestricted airspace right next to Manhattan. We flew it. ■ Thanks to John De Groot, and to Century Air (who mostly provide pilot training, so I’m grateful that they took the time to arrange this!): http://centuryair.com/ – this is not sponsored, I paid for my flight and their time.

The flight and radio procedures in this video have been significantly shortened for time, and operations over the city were pre-approved with local air traffic control. This is not intended as a substitute for proper instruction or for reference.
