What’s New

Version 9.31

LAANC v5 is live!

From the #1 LAANC provider, Aloft is excited to release the next generation of LAANC. We've designed new map styles and ceiling labels to fit with the FAA's new UAS Facility Map data. You'll find new LAANC features -- notably LAANC at night -- and you can also have more overlapping authorizations (up to five) to ensure consistent LAANC coverage and compliance across your flights. We've also improved the process for Further Coordination for commercial pilots who want to apply to fly above the pre-approved ceilings.

Thee droner ,


When downloading this app I thought it would be a simple program for showing regulated areas for flying a drone. But after opening the app I was AMAZED! This app has waypoints and any other app with waypoints costs $5 or more. Just for waypoints! This app is free and they aren’t trying to advertise something every 10 seconds. It also tells you the weather, if it is safe to fly, other aircrafts around you and much much more! I could go on and on about this app but I just want to tell you this if you have a drone DOWNLOAD THIS APP! It is the greatest of all time. Also, I am not being paid to say this. I just think this app is so helpful and great. And for it to be free is just amazing. Thank you to the great developers who created this awesome app. I highly recommend you downloading this app and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! This is why I rate this app 5 stars!

As a new recreational drone pilot I have been a bit overwhelmed. There’s a lot more that goes into flying a drone safely and legally than I realized. I stumbled across Aloft and thank goodness I did! What a great tool. Not only does it make it super simple to request authorization to fly in controlled airspace, but it also provides real time data on weather, wind, and other air traffic including type, speed, altitude and heading, all in a super friendly layout.

One thing I wish this app had is an in-app tutorial. I’m still trying to learn on my own how to use the different features. For example, why is it showing me drones that are 2000 miles away in my Active Traffic list? I’m on the East Coast and it shows me drones flirting in California in my active traffic. I’m also trying to figure out if there’s a way to sync the app with my DJI app so that my authorizations go to my drone app and my drone knows it’s authorized to take off. Like I said. I’m a new pilot and still trying to figure out how a lot of this works and a tutorial for each feature would be great.

Apart from having to figure everything out on my own, I’ve found Aloft to be very user friendly and useful! It’s a great tool.

First Authorized Flight

I am new to the world of drone flight, and learning all the ins & outs, the rules and regulations required. I live in Las Vegas and it is very hard to find airspace to fly in that does not have some type of restriction. Before I put power to the drone I did a fair amount of research into what is expected as a new pilot. Kittyhawk was highly recommend, even if you are not 107 qualified. One of the UTune segments showed step by step how the request works. Well today I used it for the first time and it worked flawlessly. I was able to fly not to far from home, and enjoyed the experience without worry of violating airspace. Thanks from a 63 year old rookie.
