How to Use LAANC with the Kittyhawk App | Best Drone App I Have Used. This app does a lot. It is not free, but for Part 107 operators or hobbyists that want one place to check sectional charts, NOTAMS, TFRs, weather/METARS, manage their fleet of drones and a bunch of other stuff, this is the only app I know of that does all of it. Submit airspace authorization requests via LAANC, create flight plans, preflight checklists, maintenance logs, and sync DJI flight data, keep up with battery health, number of drone flights and hours, etc. Full disclosure, I was provided with full access to the app in order to provide my honest opinions.
PLEASE KEEP READING FOR ADDITIONAL REFLECTIONS
I did notice that some of my flight data failed to sync from the DJI Go 4 App. I will contact support through the app to find out what’s up.
You get access to basic maps and basic weather for free, but that’s about it. in order to gain access to other features you’ll need to sign up for one of the paid subscriptions. From what I’ve seen, the Pilot in Command (PIC) plan for $14.99/month is where you get most of the features a commercial operator would be interested in such as airspace authorizations, sectional charts, flight planning, maintenance logs, etc.
So, in order to really take advantage of all of the features–including LAANC–you’ll need to pay a monthly subscription for the PIC plan.
