FAA Updates DroneZone

WASHINGTON – Upgrades to the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) DroneZone now allows recreational flyers to request airspace authorizations in controlled airspace where the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) is not available.

Airspace authorizations can take up to 45 days to process and approve through the DroneZone.

Recreational flyers may request to fly up to the designated altitude ceiling in an Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Facility Map (UASFM) and only for daytime operations.

LAANC is a collaboration between the FAA and industry that directly supports the safe integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems into the nation's airspace, expediting the time it takes for drone pilots to receive authorizations to fly under 400 feet in controlled airspace.
