  1. So, I passed my Part 107 exam and got my temporary license, with PENDING for the Certificate No. I'm trying to apply for a LAANC authorization using AirMap and KittyHawk and am running into a wall -- neither of the apps are allowing me to make the request. I created a flight mission in AirMap, but it's saying it's in Class D airspace and no authorization is present. But I don't see any capability to actually request authorization (the grid has a 100' ceiling, so I should be able to request one here). I was hoping to get some aerial shots of our church softball league's playoff game tonight, but if I can't get the LAANC request pushed through, I'm kinda grounded... I think I'm missing something. I was wondering if it's because my drone is registered for hobby use at the moment. Do I need to de-register it, the re-register under Part 107 on the FAADroneZone site first? Can the registration transfer between Hobby and Part 107, or do I have to actually re-register it, even though I'm only a year into my 3-year registration period? Or is there some other configuration thing I've got to do in AirMap and KittyHawk to enable the LAANC requests to go through? Does anyone have a guide/cheat sheet for the rest of the administrative steps I need to take to transition from hobby flyer to Part 107 certified? Thanks! -matt
  2. Hey all, I went through DPGS last year, prior to LAANC rolling out, and now I've got a Q - If I (a 107 cert holder) am planning to fly in an area where LAANC approval is available, do I need to also call/notify nearby heliports and airstrips, or are they able to "see" my flight info from LAANC, just like a towered airport?
  3. Hi all, In the attachment you can see the blue polygon of my planned flight area (about 4NM from the airport). Skyward flight planning indicates that I am just outside of Class D airspace (Circle). I am just getting used to these LAANC grids and wanted to confirm that if I am outside of Class D airspace it is okay to fly without any FAA permission even though I am within the LAANC grid. Is this correct? Unfortunately Skyward is not offering on-demand authorization at this location as of today. Thanks! ClassD_LAANCGrid.pdf
  4. Hey all, my name is Sean. I work for a national engineering firm. Over the past year I've taken the initiative to start a drone service in our firm. I am currently the only Part 107 Certified Pilot in the company. I currently fly an Inspire 2 and will be getting an Inspire 1 for thermal imaging in the near future. I am looking for any advice on streamlining FAA Airspace Authorization (understanding LAANC is not available here yet but hoping for early 2018), as a lot of our work doesn't allow me to plan as far in advance as the FAA would like. Hoping to get some advice to questions as they arise. Thanks!
  5. This recent blog post by skyward shows how they see instant approvals happening. What's great is that it looks like there will be an option for pilots to use the free version of their platform to make these requests. yeah!
