Just received new information from the FAA Unmanned Aircraft Systems




Attention # Drone Pilots – Read This - Exciting Updates to the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) today announced two important expansions of the Low Altitude Authorization and Capability (LAANC), which automates the application and approval process for drone pilots to obtain airspace authorizations in controlled airspace.

The capability is now active at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, Dulles International Airport, William P. Hobby Airport in Houston and Newark Liberty International Airport. A full list of airports covered by LAANC is available on our website.

Seven additional companies have been approved by the FAA to provide LAANC services.

LAANC directly supports the safe integration of UAS into the nation’s airspace, expedites the time it takes for drone pilots to receive authorizations to fly under 400 feet in controlled airspace. LAANC also provides pilots with an awareness of where they can and cannot fly.

The program is accessible to all pilots who operate under the FAA’s small drone rule (Part 107)
and was expanded in July to provide near real-time airspace authorizations to recreational flyers.

LAANC provides airspace authorizations only.
Pilots must still check NOTAMs and weather conditions before they fly.

New info receiver after Christmas from Federal Aviation Administration.

The FAA’s Remote ID Proposal for Drones is Here !



We want YOU to read and comment on the Remote ID Proposal

Get ready for the next exciting step in safe drone integration!
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued the proposed rule for remote identification of drones.

With nearly 1.5 million drones and 155,000 remote pilots registered with the FAA,
the ability to provide identification and location is essential to keeping drones safely separated
from other aircraft operating in our airspace.

We encourage drone enthusiasts, and anyone interested in aviation safety,
to read our Notice of Proposed Rulemaking now in the Federal Register.

In the next few days, a 60-day comment period will open to receive your feedback which can help us
develop a final rule that enhances safety and security in our nation’s skies.
“Drones are the fastest growing segment of transportation in our nation
and it is vitally important that they are safely integrated into the national airspace,”
said U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine L. Chao.

“As a pilot, my eye is always on safety first,” said FAA Administrator Steve Dickson.
“Safety is a joint responsibility between government, pilots, the drone community,
the general public and many others who make our nation so creative and innovative.”

Equipping drones with remote identification technologies would build on previous steps taken by the FAA
and the UAS industry to safely integrate operations, including the small UAS rule, which covers drones
weighing less than 55 pounds other than model aircraft, and the Low Altitude Authorization
and Notification Capability (LAANC), which automates the application
and approval process for drone operators to obtain airspace authorizations.

These efforts are the foundation for more complex operations, such as beyond visual line of sight at low altitudes,
as we move toward a traffic management ecosystem for drone flights separate from,
but complementary to, our air traffic management system.

The proposed Remote I.D. rule would apply to all drones that are required to register with the FAA
(recreational drones weighing under 0.55 pounds are not required to register),
as well as to people who operate foreign civil drone in the United States.
