Wondering how to fly drones in controlled airspace? Drone pilots need to know how to get instant airspace authorizations through the LAANC portal of the FAA, with limited systems in place. This video goes over the different apps to get airspace approval. If an airport does not have LAANC capability for instant airspace authorization, how can a pilot obtain airspace authorizations? The answer is with a WAAS authorization through the FAADroneZone. This video showcases the process of acquiring approval from either system.
