The Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability, or LAANC, is a collaboration between the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and private industry, such as AutoPylot, to safely integrate small drones into the national airspace.  LAANC provides drone pilots with access to controlled airspace at or below 400 feet through automated applications created by companies approved to LAANC services.   

AutoPylot offers both B4UFLY and LAANC to recreational, commercial, and government drone operators for free.

AutoPylot provides B4UFLY services and near real-time airspace authorizations to commercial pilots (Part-107) and recreational flyers. When requesting airspace access, pilots must enter their Remote Pilot Certificate number or TRUST Certificate Authentication Token number. This will be displayed in the menu header.

DJI Fly Zones are not official airspace data and are not the same as LAANC. The DJI system is not integrated with the FAA and is different than official national airspace maps. If you request to unlock a zone with DJI, this does not mean you are authorized to fly in that area, and you must request authorization through an FAA-approved supplier of LAANC or the FAA DroneZone. The FAA is the authoritative source on all airspace data. 

Yes! Once a pilot creates a mission, AutoPylot will provide flight-specific weather conditions including flight variables, hourly forecasts, 10-day forecasts and visual wind/precipitation maps. Pilots can find all of this weather information in their mission details.

AutoPylot uses three primary colors to indicate a planned flight area’s operational status. A green radius and flight checklist indicate the mission is in Class G airspace, and the pilot does not need an airspace authorization to fly. A red radius, map area, and flight checklist indicate the proposed flight location overlaps a do not fly boundary. An orange radius and flight checklist indicate the proposed flight area is in LAANC-enabled airspace, and the pilot can request access at that location by continuing the mission creation process.

AutoPylot is integrated with National Park Service (NPS) data sources and advises flights in National Parks, Wilderness Areas and Wildlife Refuges.
