Drone Use

Want to fly your drone over the Port of Poulsbo? Well it’s not as simple as you might think. The Port of Poulsbo is in a controlled airspace due to Liberty Bay being a FAA designated landing zone for sea planes. Drone pilots planning to fly under 400 feet in controlled airspace around airports must receive an airspace authorization from the FAA before they fly. This can be done through the FAA’s LAANC (Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability). The authorization can be obtained by one of the Approved LAANC Service Supplier Apps listed on the FAA’s website.
