FAA Announces New Program Allowing You More Drone Access

This will grant nearly instant authorization to fly drones within controlled airspace of about 600 airports.

Since the FAA and local government agencies have started cracking down on recreational drone piloting, it’s been pretty hard to get out the old drone and go flying, especially if you’re wanting to get some aerial footage.

It’s called the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability System (LAANC), and it will enable recreational drone pilots to receive authorization instantly through a mobile device, granting them permission to fly within the controlled airspace of 600 airports. That opens up an estimated 2,000 square miles of airspace for UAV operations.
