As a remote pilot my biggest challenge is obtaining FAA authorization to clear airspace for operations. AirMap, based in Santa Monica, California, has been working with the FAA to implement LAANC across the United States. In a nutshell, LAANC is an FAA electronic notification system; users will receive real time clearance as opposed to the existing 30 day turnaround. As of this writing, LAANC electronic notification is now available for 46 airports, covering 200 cities, across the country. in July of 2017, I covered LAANC and AirMap and I invite you to read my post if LAANC is a new concept to you. If you’re a licensed remote pilot, LAANC is a technology that you’ll want to become familiar with.

The AirMap application is available for iOS and Android.
