3d shortest path algorithm

I’m familiar with A* and have worked it on a 2D problem (cars). I am now looking to learn about shortest path problems for a 3D space (working with flying a drone) and was hoping someone could tell me what algorithms (simplest) to look at. I’m wanting to take off, fly to an ordered number of way points, and return.  thanks,
