Greetings,
Has anyone used AirMap, Kittyhawk, etc to receive clearance to fly in a restricted airspace under the new LAANC program? It doesn't become active in my region until later this summer, so I was curious to get some feedback on it. Is it as easy as it's played up to be on the promotional media? Curious to hear about it!

I tried in my area using Airmap since my authorization expired, but found out that the local airport is a FCT and it is not on the LAANC program yet, thankfully the FAA rep gave me an extension on my authorization. Didn't know Kittyhawk was a provider for LAAANC

Skyward is easy as pie. I don't use the others.

Newer pilot here and just used skyward for the first time. worked great. This may be a stupid question, but do I still need to notify the airport via a phone call if I have received the LAANC authorization?
No you don't, BUT you do still need to deal with DJI if it is a locked NFZ. Your drone does not know that you have LAANC clearance so you still need to go through the unlock procedure with DJI.
