For many commercial drone operators, it can be a time-consuming process to get authorization to fly in controlled airspace: the application process can take up to 90 days, which keeps your drone grounded and delays your flights.

Today, that changes: we’re excited to introduce a deep linking integration with AirMap, the leading airspace management platform for drones, to make it easier than ever for Site Scan users to quickly get airspace authorization and keep flying.

AirMap is an approved LAANC service provider by the FAA, which gives it the ability to grant digital airspace authorization directly to commercial drone operators. Now, with Site Scan’s deep link to AirMap’s LAANC capabilities, Site Scan users can obtain authorization for flights in pre-approved areas and altitudes in near real time.

“With this integration, it’s easier than ever for our customers to fly safely and confidently in the FAA’s controlled airspaces. This is a big next step in making commercial drones an essential tool on projects across the country.”

— Chris Anderson, CEO, 3DR

The workflow is simple: Plan flights in Site Scan, and send the flight plan information to AirMap with the tap of a button for processing and approval. Then, you’ll automatically be redirected back to Site Scan to complete the flight.

Whether you’re planning a same-day flight or one that’s weeks in advance, using LAANC authorization in Site Scan makes it far easier to fly safely and confidently in controlled airspaces.

LAANC is quickly expanding across the U.S., with more than 500 airports across the country planning to support it by the end of 2018. To see where LAANC is currently available, visit the FAA website.
