The FAA has simplified the process for drone owners to fly in controlled airspace. The FAA will now allow recreational drone flights to use the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability, LAANC, system. This means that drone owners will be able to use the system that dictates flight patterns in controlled airspace. Previously, drone owners would have to gain FAA permission through a much slower method, but they can now enjoy almost instantaneous access.
Drone users will now be able to access air space in 600 airports, as long as drones are flying below 400 feet. The LAANC system is able to find a controlled space and inform Air Traffic Controllers of changes to the system.
