The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has added 133 air traffic facilities to its Low Altitude Authorisation and Notification Capability (LAANC) system. LAANC is an automated application and approval system for drone pilots requesting to fly below 400 feet in controlled airspace.
As the FAA continues to modernize the national airspace to accommodate more users, the agency has made LAANC accessible for 726 airports and 537 facilities, covering 81 percent of eligible airspace. This latest expansion is based on feedback from the drone community. LAANC is a collaboration between the FAA and the Unmanned Aircraft Systems industry which directly supports the safe integration of drones into the nation’s airspace. The service is accessible to all pilots who operate under the small drone rule part 107.
