With the droneguide mobile application Belgocontrol and the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority guide drone pilots through the Belgian airspace. The app informs drone users in a comprehensible and intuitive way on which legal requirements they have to comply with for piloting a drone in Belgium.
Pilots can use the app to consult location-based information on airspace structure. After selecting a drone type and defining a flight profile (height and radius), the pilot can validate his/her flight against the applicable regulation. That way, it is displayed whether the flight is authorized or forbidden in the desired flight area, based on permanent or temporary airspace restrictions. Furthermore, users receive general information regarding the required qualifications (pilot) and licences for flying drones in Belgium.
After creating an account (e-mail address / password) more functions are activated:
• Fly Now function: when the ‘Fly Now’ button has been activated, it indicates whether other drones are nearby that require the pilot’s attention.
• Logbook: when the function has been activated, a logbook is automatically created (device, date, time, location).
