    Flying a drone can be a lot of fun, but the last thing you want is to get landed with a $5,000 fine for violating airspace regulations. Find out where and how high you can fly your drone, including any other requirements so you can plan your flight accordingly.

    Great app, works well and is accurate. My only complaint is that you have to have data, not only GPS. I would ooke it the app had downloadable reigns so that you could run off of gps alone. Not a big deal, very minor inconvenience. Great app, would recommend.
  • Worked really good before but doesn’t want to work now Jun 18, 2020

    By Dillion666
    Went to go use the app, and they completely logged me out. I tried logging back in about 15 times if not more, and each time that App would just glitch out. I even tried resetting my password and the link they sent my email glitches out. Tried going to support and it just sits there loading. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling.. I don’t know what the hell happened to this app because before it was amazing and had everything you could possibly need to fly, but now nothing seems to work.. this needs to be fixed because you have to be signed in to plan a flight or to see any information at all. I guess I’ll have to make another acc. Hopefully this one doesn’t disappear...

    Only giving it 3 stars because of the "code" entering process. First 2 flight plans I got the code to enter but the 3rd time I wasn't able to connect via my phone app even after I submitted a flight plan that was approved.
  • The best data plus electronic flight plan filing Feb 9, 2018

    By bill knighton
    This has the most complete data of any source I have located. That it electronically files your flight plan with airports makes it indispensable. The idea that someone would get on the phone and call each the heliports and local private airports every time they want to fly around their yard is a hilarious bureaucratic joke. Most of them are unmanned anyway. There is no one to call. But this is great. Let it generate piles of electronic communications. You meet your obligations.
  • IND NOTAM - AIrMap in India Jun 11, 2019

    By Cyclone573
    After using AIrMap for almost a year and regularly submitting flight plans before my drone flights in USA , this trip to India I tried AIrMap since flying drones is now legal here. It worked really well , I was getting alerts for nearby air traffic as well as no fly zones clearly marked. While I agree that the map updates would be better if crowdsourced, just wanted to let people know, you can and must use AIrMap or similar app to fly safely in other countries . Happy flying!!
  • Needs more customization Sep 13, 2019

    By Tony Baja
    The app is actually fairly good, but needs better customization. For instance, why half hour increments of flight time? The other day, I had very specific minutes to fly due to twilight...I couldn’t schedule the exact time and had to file multiple plans to make due. Also, the app doesn’t register said twilight, so it erroneously flagged my flight as “flying at night”, which was not accurate. And lastly...the app only allows a flight cap of 1,000 feet AGL; And because of a special flight, the building I was filming was a little over that. In this instance, as a part 107 holder, I’m allowed to fly 1,400AGL. The app not only restricted me from entering 1,400 feet, it also couldn’t understand that over 400 feet was allowed...and so, it flagged my flight as being non FAA compliant. Try navigating all that when you’re watching the sun set trying to fill out a flight plan. There goes your precious flight time!
  • Your first tool in your drone arsenal! Jun 12, 2019

    AirMaps is the first App while planning a mission. It continues to be a great tool in my drone services company. Become an industry standard. Living on the West Coast our National parks, controlled airspace, and airports. I can schedule a flight or get LAANC clearance immediately. It gives me the ceiling height at all class airports. Info about the airport. A “ authorized” or “ unauthorized” to fly. The information and resources this app offers are top-quality! You must use AirMaps!

  • Does not approve flights! Jan 16, 2019

    By Lively Lynx
    The map works very nicely, but I cannot get my flights approved. I happen to live near PHX airport and I cannot contact ATC via phone nor does this app help approve my low altitude <50ft flights. I don’t want to pay exorbitant prices for an uber ride out of the no fly zone, so I really do not know what to do. I want to be able to legally fly in my area, but this app doesn’t help at all.

  • Inaccurate information Dec 3, 2017

    By Dillon89
    AirMap contains very inaccurate information on where you can and cannot fly drones. For example, the map fails to show that flying on a National Wildlife Refuge is prohibited. Many other local, state, and national recreational lands that prohibit drones are not displayed as having such restrictions. And while it is well-known that flying drones in National Parks is prohibited, the colored polygons on the map do not cover the actual boundaries of the parks, and can make it confusing to look at. Even more annoying is that you cannot select individual polygons and see its information, unlike the desktop version. There needs to be an option for users to add information to the map. Crowdsourced data on where you can and cannot fly drones would build a much more accurate map.

    This app is garbage. Open it up in a spot requiring authorization, click the authorization notice and it takes me to a web page that's an ad to download the app I already have which supposedly has the ability to request LAANC...rinse and repeat.

  • This app is a joke and the developer is too Aug 7, 2018

    By Nikwerks
    Beware! Using this app could get you into serious trouble as a pilot. The app doesn’t display critical information such as TFRs, accurately. I see they’ve removed the digital filing of flights with local airports, which is good because that feature was fraudulent. No ATC I’ve ever talked to had any idea about this system. Furthermore, Airmap is lobbying to restrict an operators ability to conduct business without their permission. In other words, they want to charge drone operators for access to the NAS! They have consistently supported and even helped draft legislation that limits the rights of drone operators all across the US. They are a cancer to the drone industry.

  • App interface is utterly confusing Apr 29, 2020

    By naturalprocess
    In my past career, I worked for a software company translating UI’s. This app is utterly and annoyingly impossible to figure out how to actually use. Every time I’ve had to use it I sit there for 40 mins trying to figure out how to get permission for my flight. Well I’ve been trying to figure this out between AirMap and kittyhawk for 40 mins and ran out of time for the shoot. Can’t figure out how to get approval for flight in air maps and can’t figure out how to actually fly in kittyhawk since the fly button is grayed out with no explanation. Lame. Now I guess I’ll have to come back later.

  • A Must Have for Legal Flight Apr 25, 2020

    It’s hard enough to find a place to fly today if you live inside city limits. Using Air Map and getting that authorization shows that you are flying by the rules. Also gives you some backup if stopped by law enforcement.

  • The Go-To drone App Jan 21, 2018

    By Nathan Shinholt
    The fact that this app lets you specify whether you’re flying recreationally or under commercially pt. 107 is amazing. Being able to develop flight plan and being provided a checklist is awesome. One annoying thing: a lot of the advisories get cut off with a “...” and there seems to be no way to read the rest of the advisory which seems like a serious issue.
  • Five mile radius no longer shows up. Jun 24, 2019

    By 
    It seems that now it only shows you a radius of one mile around an airport when before it showed the one mile no fly radius and a five mile required notification radius. I’m not sure if the laws changed but the five mile radius was extremely helpful and I don’t know why the would take it away.

  • Fly view worthless, but generally not bad Apr 3, 2018

    By n0cguy
    In general the app seems to be pretty accurate in my area of the world, provides useful information. The one main reason I downloaded this was the support for DJI and fly view which doesn't seem to work and even if it did, there is zero documentation available. This should be a goto pre flight app and particularly so for the DJI owner, but not so much. So I gave it a 3.

  • Contains old information Oct 26, 2017

    By Jyunte
    For hobbyist flyers, this app still contains incorrect information. Specifically, it states that hobbyist flyers must register with the FAA. Not only is that incorrect (there is no requirement for hobbyists to register with the FAA, as that law was overturned by Congress), but the information was actually incorrect anyway. It was the PILOT who was required to register, not the drone (UAS). The same registration number (of the pilot) was placed on each aircraft; it was never possible to register individual aircraft.
