Understanding LAANC for Drones
LAANC (pronounced “Lance”) will provide part 101 & 107 UAS operators a streamlined solution to enable real time automated notification and authorization. That will reduce the time from 90 days down to almost instant approval. Implementation began with 50 airports in the fall of 2017, and will expand over the next few years.
LAANC will also provide a means for drone hobbyists to notify air traffic control when they plan to fly within five miles of an airport, a requirement expressed by Congress in 2012 FAA reauthorization legislation. The LAANC roll out is in progress.
This overview will provide the student with an introduction to this new system.
