Today’s question is about getting airspace approval from an airport that is not LAANC-enabled.
Our caller for today, Chris has a question about getting permission to fly near an airport without LAANC. As per the FAA, getting airspace approval from a non-LAANC enabled airport can take up to 90 days. Clearly, this is not a feasible timeframe for most drone pilots.
So, is there any way to speed up the approval process? Paul reveals how cultivating relationships with the ATC can possibly help Chris out. Thanks for the great question. Fly Safe!
