What is LAANC?
LAANC, or Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability system (L.A.A.N.C.), allows U.S. commercial drone operators to obtain automatic permissions.
Does DroneBase participate in LAANC authorizations?
LAANC authorization is available for DroneBase Pilots and is powered by AirMap, an approved LAANC UAS service supplier.
How does it work?
