Drone Assist is the #1 drone safety app from Altitude Angel in the UK. It provides an interactive map of the sky and is used by general aviation, balloon pilots, other airspace users, and of course, drone pilots! Our map data is currently most effective in the UK, but will work in other GEOs and we are continually adding new country-specific map data. It allows you to see areas to avoid or in which extreme caution should be exercised, as well as ground hazards that may pose safety, security, or privacy risks when flying your drone.

The Drone Assist app has been built natively for optimised performance on both iOS and iPadOS.

Essential Tool for Drone Pilots

This app makes it so easy to submit a flight plan and ensure that you are flying legally and made aware of potential hazards.
Being able to submit a flight plan then gives you a record of your flights for reference in the future.
I have been using it now for a few months and am impressed on how easy it is to use.
Sure, it’s not perfect but if you want to be a responsible drone pilot then using this app will help to make sure you operate within CAA guidelines.

Fly Safe

Not perfect, but essential !

Download this. That’s the starting point. It will help you to operate within the law, and it will alert you to any hazards or restrictions you need to know about.

You might not realise how close to an airport you are, or where the nearest sources of electrical interference are. With this app, you will.

Although the app isn’t perfect, they are working on improvements and I got to see part of that process recently. I can tell they’re really trying to make this an indispensable tool for drone flyers in the UK.
