I'm going to do a LAANC request for a flight in Arizona in a few days. This will be the first time me doing a LAANC request. My question is, if I get permission for a flight in advance and for some reason need to cancel, is there something I need do in the app to let them know. I'll be using Aloft.

Thanks in advance.

If you choose to not fly the project there is nothing further you need to do. You may also need to get an unlock key through DJI flysafe to be able to fly

Even though the site is in Class D Airspace, the DJI Fly Safe doesn't include the launch point. LAANC will give me auto approval to 200'.

Roughly where in AZ were you planning to fly, @snowghost ? I live in Prescott and there's several areas where, even though it's within the Controlled Airspace of the local airport (KPRC), LAANC will give approval for up to the 400' maximum. Closer-in, lower, of course; for example, at/near our club ham station/Yavapai Jeep Posse building, the approval is for up to 50' because it's on or very near the approach/departure path to Runway 3R/21L, but ny friend (who's also interested in flying drones), while still inside the CA, can get approval for up to 400' in his area, and he's not too far away from the club station. Of course, he's also not almost in a direct line with the approach/departure path, either.

Regarding LAANC.....
When you submit a request for "XYZ" area, and get approval, does that request/approval also go to the local tower (in my case, KPRC) and let them know there'll be low altitude drone ops in that area, so they can let helo pilots know of it, should they be heading that direction?

Suggestion: Make a request as if you are flying the air space here, now, today. Limit time requested to 15 minutes.

If instant approval at the altitude requested is given, you’ll see how requests automatically time out.

More importantly, if immediate approval is NOT given, you’ll learn what further actions may be needed to get it.

FYI, concise, accurate advice here on LANCC, timing of requests, and potential snags.

That is great idea. Good way to test your approval process
