What are LAANC & B4UFLY?

Airspace Link is an FAA-approved UAS Service Supplier of the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) and is approved to provide B4UFLY Services. Both services are integrated into the AirHub® Portal application for Part 107 Pilots and Recreational Flyers.

As a safety awareness program, B4UFLY provides public access to important safety and airspace information prior to flight. B4UFLY displays controlled and uncontrolled airspace, maximum authorized altitudes near airports, restricted or prohibited airspace, and other safety information.

Drone pilots planning to fly under 400 feet in controlled airspace must receive airspace authorization from the FAA before they fly. LAANC automates the application and approval process for airspace authorizations and is available to pilots operating under the Small UAS Rule Part 107 or under the exception for Recreational Flyers.

To qualify under Part 107, you must register your drone and hold a Remote Pilot Certificate. Recreational flyers must take The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST) before they fly.

Getting Started

Discover Your Airspace

AirHub® Portal provides free-to-use, publicly available airspace awareness features designed to help drone flyers understand important safety and airspace information prior to flight. Use the “Discover” feature of the AirHub® Portal application.

Create a New Pilot Account

To complete LAANC approvals, you’ll need a free AirHub® Pilot personal account. Signing up is as easy as providing your email address to validate your account, and you can then start creating new LAANC submissions in just a few clicks.

Create New Operation

After creating your account, log in and locate the area of interest for your operation using an address, a point of interest, geographic coordinates, or by manually navigating the map. The app will visualize FAA data and operation insights as you navigate around the location.

Define Mission Parameters

The basics of an operation consist of a name, a start time (and duration), the pilot in command (who will be operating or supervising the drone), and the area you intend to fly. Don't worry, we'll help ensure you stay on track as you input your data.

Request Authorization from FAA

Depending on your operation details and location, you may need to request a flight authorization from the FAA. There may even be situations where the operation is divided into multiple areas if we need to submit to different air traffic facilities. AirHub® Portal will handle this for you and guide you along the way.

Does AirHub® Portal have a native application?

Yes! Users can sign up or sign in directly on the web at or download native iOS and Android mobile apps on the Apple App or Google Play Store(s).

AirHub Portal comes with the advantage of cross-device compatibility, meaning you can use it through the web or installed as a local/native application for both desktop and mobile devices.

How are flights approved?

This depends on when and where you're flying. Your desired altitude + the operation location will affect the types of operations you may submit. In many cases, you may qualify for authorization in near real-time.

Alternatively, your operation may require further coordination. This means an Air Traffic Manager will need to manually approve the operation before it's legal to fly. You may request both authorization types up to 90 days in advance. In both cases, you can use our simple web planning tools in AirHub Portal to plan and submit your operation.

Where LAANC is not available, pilots are encouraged to use FAADroneZone.

How do I know where it's safe to fly?

Answering this question is the core tenet of the B4UFLY & LAANC capability. Through AirHub Portal, you receive support in understanding where you may or may not operate a drone. This includes help in identifying flight risks, understanding limits on flight altitude, and other advisories that may affect your planning and operation decisions.

What if I'm not in controlled airspace?

No matter where you fly in the United States, your altitude must remain below 400' above ground level (AGL) and your drone must always remain in visual line-of-sight. Other community advisories may exist to help better inform your flight planning; we can help with that too.

Do I need all this if I fly Recreationally?

All Recreational Flyers must pass the TRUST Safety Test and register their drone if it weighs more that 0.55 lbs (250 grams). Recreational flyers must operate below 400’ AGL. If your drone is registered, it must be Remote ID compatible. Additionally, recreational flyers must request airspace authorization if operating in controlled airspace. B4UFLY services within AirHub Portal is a great airspace awareness tool that indicates where LAANC authorization may be required.
