LAANC Made Easy – How obtain authorization to fly drones in FAA controlled airspace.

LAANC Made Easy – How obtain authorization to fly drones in FAA controlled airspace.

LAANC has been rolled out across the United stated but is still a bit confusing on exactly how you can use it to your advantage! In this video I show you how you can fly in controlled airspaces while complying with regulations, and get clearance to do so in just a few minutes. Federal Aviation Administration drone regulation has made it tougher and tougher to fly in certain areas in the United states, but using LAANC can help you take back the airspace.

    Thanks for your video! It helped me get my first FAA-approved authorization.

    Solid video, Nick! Thanks for info! Quick tip.. I would recommend lowering your music track audio levels a bit in the future. Keep it up, dude!

    Sometimes when i try to get authorization is says Laanc is not available for operations outside of controlled air space. What does this mean ?

    your vocals are so quiet and the music is way too loud. I have to constantly adjust the volume to watch this video

    As a British recreational user about to visit the USA, I am registered with the FAA, and hoping to fly in some non national parks around Portland Oregon for downtown shots and stadium shots, and probably in other cities when I arrive, so to be legally allowed to fly in these places where airport boundaries are, I simply need to submit permissions through AirMap? And this saves me contacting the ATC (unless they are not automated with Laanc? All new rules for me to learn for my visit, your airport controlled airspace’s are massive compared to ours in the UK, and there are usually dozens overlapping in some cities depending on the maps used, I had drone assist and my goodness it was horrid to read, not sure if it is supported by USA, hopefully not otherwise it would look like nobody could fly ever 🤣🤣

    DJI MA2 and Mini 2 come with DJI’s system of requesting for authorization from the airport. Do those drones need LAANC as well (through Kittyhawk)? (I know the area, that spot is pretty cool at night :D)

    Nice video! The helicopter flying over was a gem of a teaching moment.

    great video Nick especially love the music choice. What camera are you using to shoot the b roll?
