A view of Maryland with airports (both public and private) surrounded by 5-mile red circles alerting unmanned aircraft operators to the no-fly zones; controlled airspace is also displayed, in simplified form. Screen shot from

As encounters between manned and unmanned aircraft have increased in recent months, so too have the efforts to educate operators—particularly consumers with little or no aviation experience or expertise. The FAA announced in May it is developing a mobile application for drone users that will help them avoid airspace incursions, with testing to begin in the coming months.

That basic technology—a real-time mapping system that alerts unmanned aircraft operators to the presence of controlled airspace and other areas to avoid—arrived at the end of April with the public release of AirMap, a free, Web-based digital map that simplifies airspace for presentation to unmanned aircraft operators, created by a California company.

Hi Ed, I shortened your post a bit. Reason being, it's not legal to post the entire contents of another site's article. You may quote excerpts from it under the fair use doctrine in order to inform or educate.



P.S. I was one of the early testers of that app. It's a good effort and it's free for now.
