Grid In The Sky

You fly a drone?  Then you must be familiar with LAANC, the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability.  It provides drone pilots with access to controlled airspace at or below 400 feet.  Included is an FAA web app that provides near real-time authorization to conduct drone flights in controlled airspace.  Drone pilots can use it to easily locate LAANC enabled airports, understand the airspace classification, determine the latitude/longitude of the proposed flight location, and view altitude restriction grids.  Apps such as FAADroneZone, AirMap, Aeronyde, Converge, Kittyhawk, Skyward, and UASidekick will provide the map and the ability to acquire LAANC authorizations.

The web map is also available to the public.  Check it out!
