I asked the local FSDO and didn't get a direct answer. My second attempt resulted in this response.  Yes it's ok to fly in alert area 294

There are no restrictions on you operating in an Alert Area.  Alert areas are depicted on aeronautical charts to inform nonparticipating pilots of areas that may contain a high volume of pilot training or an unusual type of aerial activity.  You should be particularly alert when flying in these areas.  As the unmanned aircraft pilot you are responsible for collision avoidance.

What is the rule for flying a drone in A-294 I live in new smyrna beach on the south end. There is an airspace A-294 that I live in. When I use LAANC services i get different responses. one says no flights in alert areas and another says plan approved. I dont have a chart to identify who to call and the zoom in chart on the faa doesen't provide it either. What is the rule for flying a drone in this airspace A-294
