No fly areas

Hi are the no fly areas correct? Ie Archerfield airport in Brisbane has extended no fly zone past the usual area (you can see it in the forest lake area) When going to the old app (can I fly there) the “red” no fly zone is more circular and doesn’t include the extended flight path restriction. Just need to clarify which is actually the correct restriction.

If you could please contact us at opensky@wing.com, we'd be happy to investigate this further for you. Thanks!

Slow maps, privacy nightmare

The previous CASA approved app, for all its shortfalls, used standard maps for iOS platform. It was fast, and, more importantly, did not share your personal information with Google.

This new app:
* eula mainly concerned with US laws. Barely mentions Australian ones
* does not have its own privacy policy
* instead has link that takes you to Google API privacy policy, which permits Google to track everything you do

Essentially, to comply with law in Australia you now have to allow a foreign company that makes all of its money collecting and reselling personal data (its clearly spelled out in their earnings documents - they are a public ally listed company after all) to track you.

I have no problems with providing my personal information to CASA. They have looked after our skies well for decades that I have been flying either as a pilot in command or as a drone operator, and many decades before then.

Google, on the other hand, is a privacy nightmare.

I can not, in good faith, accept the license agreement of this software, which sadly leaves me and ones like me without a CASA approved way to check if area I am planning to fly in is safe to fly.

I will continue to use “Can I Fly There” until it stops working, but after that I am afraid it’s back to checking paper maps, error prone and inefficient as it is.

Hi there, our privacy policy is here , and is linked in our terms of service, as well as being in the side bar menu in the app. Please email opensky@wing.com if you have more questions. Thanks!

Not working

It seems to me (unless I’m doing something wrong) that this app does not work as it should. Every location I select, even those that are clearly not in a restricted area, return a red pin with a white cross. Clicking on learn more provides odd information. It shows many items with green ticks but at the top of the list is a red cross with the description x flying in daylight.
I have yet to select a location that returns a green tick as in the sample on this page and I suspect that nothing will. As a matter of interest all items that are not in restricted areas return an okay to fly in the CASA app.

Developer Response ,

Hi Wayne, thanks very much for the feedback, and we apologise for the confusion. The red pin with the white X appears everywhere during night hours for recreational operators, as recreational and hobbyist flying at night is not allowed by the rules. If you look during the day, or are flying commercially with an operator certificate issued by CASA and select ReOC “rules” you should see an advisory for the night restriction.

We appreciate the feedback very much, and will work on ways to make the night time vs day time distinction clearer.
