Removes all the guesswork
I feel it’s pretty amazing that a government agency would take the time to put this together. I think it speaks very highly of the FAA. I read a few comments that the maps are not up to date, however, it still shows if it’s safe and allowable to fly in certain locations by a simple push of a button. With so much bad press occurring with drones, I believe this is a great tool that will allow drone users many years of fun, safe and compliant flying. Thank you to the people of the FAA for providing this.
Recreational UAS operators
LAANC is misleading and need to be updated. According to the current FAA guidelines there is not longer a need to notify aiport if one is flying within 5 miles. In LAANC menu when you select frequently asked question link. The question is: Do I have to notify all airports within five miles of where I want to flyrecreationally?
Yes, you must contact any airports (including heliports and sea-based airports) and air traffic control towers within five miles of your proposed area of operations if flying under.
This is incorrect there is no requirement to contact the airports.
In addition in LAANC if you pin your proposed operation in the Yellow area LAANC does not provided what action one must take. It only populates the airport distance. This is not helpful and confusing. LAANC needs to advise the operator what action is needed when proposing to fly in the yellow circles. Thanks.
I've been a long time user of the B4UFLY app and the new update with the inclusion of Kitty Hawk has been a tremendous help! It does a great job breaking down each area where an air space restriction may apply and gives insight as to why that restriction is in place. Keep up th great work!
