What type of mobile data connection is required for Aloft to function in the field?

We recommend using Aloft (formerly Kittyhawk) in conjunction with a cellular data connection (like 4G).

A strong connection is required for certain functionality, like streaming. Please be aware of any data limitations associated with the connection.

A minimal connection is required to load map and weather data, submit LAANC requests, and allow syncing to Aloft cloud.

Aloft may be utilized offline. Any flight, checklist, or risk assessment logs will be stored locally and synced as soon as an internet connection is available.

Aloft also functions in conjunction with a dedicated hot spot for internet connectivity.
