If your airspace authorization expired on September 30, 2018, and you did not receive an airspace authorization extension, you can apply for a new authorization via the Low Altitude

Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) or the DroneZone.

There are two ways to obtain an authorization:

1. The quickest and easiest way is through LAANC.  An FAA approved UAS Service Supplier (USS) of the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability  grants an airspace authorization* in near real time. A list of USSs is available below. Instructions on how to apply are provided by the individual service provider.

2. Through the DroneZone:

To use the DroneZone you must first set up an account. (If you’ve already registered your drone, you should login using that account.)      

  • Select option to register under the tab “ Fly sUAS under Part 107."
  • Register your drone.
  • Under section Part 107 Waivers and Authorizations, follow the instructions to create an authorization application.

Before you apply make sure your read our tips on how to apply.

*LAANC does not support waiver applications, authorizations that are part of a waiver application can only be made in the DroneZone.
