FAA to Expand Prospects for Hobbyist Pilots

Recently the FAA announced the expansion of its Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) system to include hobbyist drone flyers.  This will greatly expand the ability of drone pilots to gain access to controlled airspace nationwide.  This policy will speed up the time it takes for authorization to fly under 400 feet in controlled airspace.  The expansion means the FAA has further increased drone pilots’ access to controlled airspace safely and efficiently while providing air traffic professionals with information about where and when authorized drones are flying near airports.
