Airspace Link’s AirHub™ is the first cloud-based drone platform focused exclusively around the needs of state & local government. With Airspace Link, you are integrating local governance into the tools drone pilots already use to plan and authorize recreational or commercial operations within the community.
Community Driven Drone Airspace Solutions
One of the primary challenges communities face are pilots unfamiliar or unaware of the changing and often dynamic local and federal landscape for drone regulation. With Airspace Link, pilots plan and submit flight plans to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) based on real-world, ground based risk and local ordinance regulation; authored and published by those who know the community's needs the best...

Our mission is to help communities safely manage drone integration while building new economic development opportunities for businesses and citizens.
- Enables the drone industry to use the safest drone operational locations or routes in the community.
- Provides single authoritative data source across multiple levels of government.
- Protects citizens' safety while supporting drone operations with clear advisory risk areas.
All-In-One Drone Planning & Authorization System
Enriched with your local, authoritative data, Airspace Link solutions enable safer operations, faster approvals and more importantly, a link between your community and ongoing drone operations.
Integrate Community Data
Integrating community data ensures pilots quickly understand airspace advisories, rules and risk to each flight plan. Empower operators with information about local governance, scheduled events, or active emergency situations. Enrich the same tools the pilots are already using for operational planning.
Airspace Link is a FAA supplier of Low Altitude Authorization & Notification Capability (LAANC), directly supporting UAS integration into the national airspace. With Airspace Link, operations authorized in your community are eligible for immediate submission to the proper FAA authority; maximizing pilot efficiency.
Generate real-time and historical reports. Visualize the risk profile of your community. Understand how community advisories impact potential recreational or commercial drone operations. In short, create a better common operational picture for your stake-holders based on real-time drone data.
- Report on when and where flights are happening or have happened within the community.
- Federal and local data is aggregated into comprehensive view of high and low risk areas.
- As communities build advisory areas, Airspace Link provides tools to assess the impact to recreational and commercial drone operations.
What Are The Benefits to Your Community?
Drone operations are occurring in your community every day, but can you answer the question of when and where? How do you communicate to the drone industry at-large when there is an ongoing active emergency area? How do you take a stance of economic opportunity for businesses within the community while maintaining a suite of KPIs and operational understanding?
From a consolidated dashboard, view the activities and key performance indicators most vital to meeting your organization’s objectives. Airspace Link provides proactive tools to help you design for the needs of your community’s airspace.
Frequenty Asked Questions
01. What are 'highways in the skies'?
By pre-processing aerial and ground-based risk data, optimal areas (in terms of safety) begin organically presenting themselves. These pre-processed corridors are potential drone flight corridors.
02. What is LAANC?
The FAA has created a public/private partnership known as the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability. This is a suite of APIs and safety policies that private organization use to authorize low altitude UAS operations near airports.
03. What authority do local regulators have in regards to drones?
Laws traditionally related to state and local police power – including land use, zoning, privacy, trespass, and law enforcement operations – generally are not subject to federal regulation. Airspace Link helps communities define 'advisory areas', or areas where it's not advisable to fly.
04. Where, when and how are businesses or citizens allowed to fly in my jurisdiction?
The FAA has clear regulations on where, when and how drones may operate in controlled and uncontrolled airspace. Airspace Link works in lock-step with communities and the FAA to ensure pilots using our platform always have access to the most up-to-date information.
