I am not aware of Class e3 airspace that is now associated in an area I used to be able to fly my ultralight, model airplane, or drone. It is now apparently requiring FAA authorization.

  • $\begingroup$ If this user were still active, I would ask if his problem has been result. To the best of my knowledge, E3 airspace is currently not in the gridded (authorization-required) portion of the LAANC map for authorization for flying unmanned aircraft (model airplanes, drones). Also, I would very much like to know if an FAA staffer has directly told him that he needs authorization to fly his paramotor in E3 airspace. Ping me if you ever come back, FECK, please. $\endgroup$ May 5 at 18:38

It looks like its an extension of Class C Airspace from a class E3 announcement,

...Class E3 airspace areas are designated as arrival extensions to a Class C surface area. Class E arrival extensions are primarily designated to provide additional controlled airspace ancillary to a surface area to protect instrument operations for the primary airport, without imposing additional communications burdens on airspace users.

The meaning of E3 airspace is spelled out in several answers to this related question-- What are E2 and E4 airspace?
