A major step backwards from the old Aloft app

This app is noticeably worse than the old Aloft app. They haven't implemented FaceID in the new app, so every day I launch the app I have to enter my password again. They've also split the login page into two parts so it's a lot of extra steps.

The app also "feels" worse to navigate and use. I'm pretty sure the whole thing is web views now, the animations of sliding in the nav bar and such are just not good now.

One feature request that could save this app is to be able to reuse settings from a previous LAANC request. If I'm often doing flights in the same area, I'd like to have it save the polygon and last used duration so I don't have to zoom in to get the area just right every time.

And also, please add FaceID back.

Hi, Aaron. Appreciate the feedback. Air Control on iOS is fully native Swift, and at the new website -- -- we have more advanced LAANC features like you suggested, including a duplicate button for those recurring authorizations.

With the latest version, you shouldn't need to login again unless you logout. We saw an issue with some users refresh token, but if you're still having issues, our support team is an email away --

Dead From The Start

Reading Aloft's response to another review gave me reservations, but a video I watched recommended Airmap, a predecessor to this app. So, what the heck, I'll give it a try. When I brought the app up I was immediately confronted with a spartan lookinng page which demanded I create an account. I wasn't going to set up an acount for an app I know nothing about and was unsure if I would use it. So, I would strongly suggest that the developer add a "guest" option. The fact that your reply to the review "A major step backwards..." seemed to indicate that you are all about the web is a very bad sign, but I was at least open minded enough to take a look. Too bad you weren't open minded enough to let me do that without gathering data on me.

Hi there. You are welcome to use B4UFLY if you want a guest view of our airspace and safety information. If you ever need LAANC or more advanced fleet and workflow features, then the main Aloft app is best. And we are focused on mobile. That’s where 90% of our users operate, so open to any feedback or suggestions. Thanks for flying with Aloft.

You all ruined the app

The response from the developer says it all. #1 they say rocking a 2.3 star overall. #1 what? In having a cluelessness as being a core value of the company? What an incredibly arrogant response from them. Like I said, the app is terrible. The only reason the LAANC is up is because DJI is on the “list”. If I could give you all zero stars I would.

Wow! Installed then promptly uninstalled. I’d rather go on Dronezone then deal with the janky app you all developed. Native Swift you say, it’s great you say? Glad you all are proud of it because you all are the only ones who think it’s great. Total trash. From the way you select a flight area to the way it’s janky self wants to stay in landscape. Trash!!!!

Hey Dev. Since we released the enterprise Air Control platform for all users, we've seen record usage and now power over 84% of all LAANC (we were growing even when DJI was an approved provider). We are constantly monitoring app reviews for constructive feedback, and our support team is available for anyone who needs direct assistance. We'd love to hear from you if you have ideas that we can work off of. All the best. Fly safe.
