Does submitting a flight notify all other airspace users?

No. Submitting a flight report will not make your drone flight visible to manned aviation or other drone users. It is your responsibility to ensure you fully observe the airspace around you to reduce the risk of an in-air collision.

“The information is inaccurate or there is a No Fly Zone that is not currently listed.”

All the information listed in Drone Safety Map originates from official sources for each country. Some private landowners may ban the use of drones within the airspace above them, but this is often not enforced on an official level. Altitude Angel encourages all drone pilots to seek the consent from land-owners for any flight they are planning.If you do identify anything that seems peculiar, we would welcome you to get in touch at hello@altitudeangel.com (mailto:hello@altitudeangel.com) and let ...

“I can’t see airspace information when I zoom out.”

Drone Safety Map is the leading source for accurate and detailed airspace information for Drone Pilots. As a result, a great deal of data is being aggregated and displayed on your device. To ensure you’re able to access this information, there are limits set on how much can be displayed at any one time.

Reporting an incident

If you’re unfortunate enough to crash your drone, are involved in a near-miss, or experiences any issues while flying your drone, you can report it anonymously through Altitude Angel’s Incident Reporting Form by clicking the ‘Report an Incident’ icon. This information is collated and shared with drone pilots and manufacturers to identify common issues, help learn from the mistakes of others, and generally help the community grow. Altitude Angel will never use this information to identify individ...

Flying your drone

On the day of your flight, ensure you’re aware of the current weather situation. Will cloud cover obstruct your view of the sky? Is a storm forecast? Check Drone Safety Map again to ensure no NOTAMs have come into effect. Once you’re at your take-off location, observe your environment closely and thoroughly. Are there any hazards you may have missed? Are pedestrians or vehicles in the area that could pose a security or safety risk? If you have any concerns pre-flight, do not fly.

Planning your drone flight

The first step to planning a flight is to look at the airspace in which you’re planning to fly your drone. Is a No Fly Zone (NFZ) in effect? Is there an active Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR)? If the answer to any of these is “Yes”, then you are unlikely to be able to fly your drone in this area. If the answer is “No”, then your next step is to take a look for anything that could potentially impact your flight, such as NOTAMs, or Ground Hazards.

What is Drone Safety Map?

Drone Safety Map is a detailed and free air map for UAV and Drone pilots which shows real-time Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFRs), No Fly Zones (NFZs), NOTAMs, ground hazards, and more. The map is designed to enable safe flight planning and effective fleet management for recreational and commercial operators over worldwide airspace.
