Whether you're a hobbyist or professional drone pilot, DroneMaps makes it easy to view FAA Sectionals and UAS Facility Maps.
You'll use the compass icon to center the map on your location. Then click on the layer icon to select a base layer and overlay.
Base layers include Google Maps and FAA Sectionals. You can toggle UAS Facility Maps as an overlay on one of the base layers.
UAS Facility Maps show the maximum altitudes around airports where the FAA may authorize part 107 UAS operations without additional safety analysis. These maps DO NOT authorize operations in these areas at the depicted altitudes – they are for informational purposes ONLY.
DroneMaps is a work in progress and I plan on releasing more layers in the near future. If you have any suggestions please reach out to me on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/dennisbaldwin
- Updated FAA sectional charts
- You can now zoom one layer closer into FAA sectionals
Ratings and Reviews
Great Sectional Charts
This app has great potential! As what other reviewers stated, the map maxes out and the sectional chart disappears when trying to zoom in to get more info. I have an iPhone XS Max, and the search bar appears right behind the notch, so that needs to he fixed. Also, there needs to be a way to hide the keyboard after tapping on the search bar.
I’ll second what others have said. It’s a very good app. I would love to have the ability to zoom in more on a specific area though. The zoom maxes out when I need a bit more. It’s pretty hard to read info in a TFR for example.
App UAS map Grid isn’t working
I’m not sure how to get support for this app.... the grid function of the UAS Facility map was awesome when it was working, however recently the grid that shows altitude approval sectors does not pop up on the map properly, i have deleted and re downloaded the app a number of times trying to find a solution. If anyone has a solution please let me know what it is? Or if anyone knows of a support phone number or email that would also be helpful.
