Need to Be Able to Clear Recent Searches

I need a way to clear recent searches in the app. The recent searches appear when I swipe up from the bottom, and I should be able to remove a search by swiping left.

Old Data

Nice app but the data is out of date! Map shows local airport that I should be aware of before flying. Trouble is it has been closed (and torn down) for MORE THAN 25 YEARS!!!!! Same for MULTIPLE Helipads.

Doesn’t really matter, within 5 years of this posting the model aviation hobby will be completely gutted by over government control. It’s not liberal vs conservative it is deeper than that and much simpler to understand. Basically the Government, Local, State and Federal do not want private individuals to have certain capabilities like all the new “tech” in our hobby provides. Those capabilities are only for “THOSE IN POWER”! That is the real reason behind the FAA’s airspace grab. Safety is just the buzz word used to limit your rights.

So much easier for the casual flyer!

It’s now a lot easier to tell whether I’m in controlled airspace or not when trying to fly my drone. Don’t want to break any rules! You can also get easy LAANC authorizations through Kittyhawk if you need to fly near an airport (even as a hobbyist or recreational user).

Way to go, Kittyhawk!!!
