Very user friendly AND necessary depending where you fly

I live near an airport and therefore am within a controlled area. It is not just any airport but one where the state Police helicopters and the Air National Guard fly out of - and they fly low.

Applying for and receiving FAA authorization is required for legal drone flight otherwise the consequences can be very severe. This app made the LAANC process very smooth. I did not think it would be so quick and easy - especially reading the reviews about other apps. Besides the LAANC I could check for other temporary flight restrictions.

This app is a necessity in my opinion for legal and responsible drone flying. Even if one does not lived in an area with controlled airspace it is still good to check for FAA TFRs.

For better or worse there is going to be more scrutiny of drone flying. Apps like this take a lot of stress away from the wondering “Am I legal or not?” Keep that in mind because later this year the FAA will require drones to broadcast their ID’s. Assume you are going to be “on their radar” so stay legal, stay safe, and stay responsible.

Very user friendly but I would like to see more.

I have to start this review by saying this app is great. It works well and does everything you need to register to fly in controlled air space. I would like to see more features that would be useful for my work. Now that checklists are included I would love to see a button on the mission side that lets you manually mark the mission as flown with the option to add any post flight notes needed after the mission. I would also love to see a place to list all drones and batteries owned with a spot in the missions where you can note which drone and batteries you are flying with. I have just been adding that information in the notes tab and it can be tedious. Regardless of those wishes I will be continuing to use this app as it is one of the friendliest to use out their.

Took me 5 minutes to love the app

Had to bounce between 5 different non functional apps and then I found this one. I 100% will use this app anytime I fly, getting LAANC took less time to get approval than it takes me to use the bathroom. Super clear UI UX. LOVE it.
