Measuring Development Milestones at Aloft Technologies



20 million B4UFLY searches, 500K LAANC authorizations and 1 million monthly airspace events

SILVER SPRING, MD, July 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Aloft Technologies today announced a series of milestones with record flight and airspace safety on Aloft’s applications and the UTM platform. Aloft recorded an all-time half-million LAANC authorizations, including a record June where total authorizations increased 58% year-on-year and commercial airspace authorizations increased 102% year-on-year . On the B4UFLY application, record usage and adoption resulted in 20 million airspace searches at all times. In addition, the Aloft UTM data network surpassed one million monthly airspace incidents in June, while witnessing quarter-on-quarter commercial revenue growth, marking the platform’s largest expansion in the company’s history.

Since relaunching the B4UFLY app in August of 2019 and expanding it to a web-based version, B4UFLY has become the official source of situational awareness for UAS operators and recreational drone pilots alike. New features like Notify and Fly that enable pilots to anonymously share their flight intent and location with other pilots are also seeing rapid growth. May and June this year saw a record usage of Notify & Fly with a 3 fold increase from March to June.

“We know that adoption by users is the key to all successful compliance efforts. While we continue to build open and scalable systems, we can’t mistake walls for highways. We need compliance, safety and security to come with it. With accessible and easy-to-use devices. We are excited to continue growing with the broader drone ecosystem,” said John Haggrens, CEO and Founder of Aloft.

Completing an all-time quarter, Aloft’s latest product launch Aloft Geo, which allows government and official agencies to publish aerial and groundspace advisories for the Aloft UTM data network, surpassed 50 verified agencies in the first month. From local law enforcement and first responders to federal agencies such as NASA and the Department of Homeland Security, Aloft Geo is enabling the next step in UTM situational awareness by integrating these additional official data sets with Aloft’s airspace restrictions and flight activity data . This expansion of Aloft’s data crowdsourcing initiative is making a major impact by allowing authoritative agencies to directly manage and publish their data to the largest network of drone pilots and airspace stakeholders.

“Many pilots flying motorized aircraft within the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS) have asked MBNS staff to use the B4UFLY app for situational awareness. Therefore, MBNMS staff have set the limits of the NOAA regulated overflight zone to a * Provides a .kml file to Aloft Geo and metadata and links to inform pilots where under 1000 feet within MBNMS, said Sophie Day, MBNMS permit coordinator and GIS specialist. flights are prohibited by federal regulations. Aloft Jio’s interface is intuitive and updates are published efficiently.” Beukeller.
