If your airspace authorization expired on September 30, 2018, and you did not receive an airspace authorization extension, you can apply for a new authorization via the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) or the DroneZone.
There are two ways to obtain an authorization:
1. The quickest and easiest way is through LAANC. An FAA approved UAS Service Supplier (USS) of the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability grants an airspace authorization* in near real time. A list of USSs is available below. Instructions on how to apply are provided by the individual service provider.
- Altitude Angel
- Harris Corporation
- Project Wing
- Thales Group
2. Through the DroneZone:
To use the DroneZone you must first set up an account. (If you’ve already registered your drone, you should login using that account.)
- Select option to register under the tab “ Fly sUAS under Part 107."
- Register your drone.
- Under section Part 107 Waivers and Authorizations, follow the instructions to create an authorization application.
Before you apply make sure your read our tips on how to apply.
*LAANC does not support waiver applications, authorizations that are part of a waiver application can only be made in the DroneZone.
