Why are my missions sitting as “Requested”?

To clarify, there is a difference between creating a mission and filing for LAANC authorization. The mission serves as a way to tie flight records from multiple pilots each conducting their own checklists, risk assessments, etc. The mission feature also supports the ability for Admins to monitor account activity and manually approve each flight. LAANC is a separate process to receive airspace authorization which you should receive approvals immediately – unless requesting for a high altitude than allowed. Below you can find a video for a breakdown of the LAANC process.
