UASidekick is an app that was developed to simplify NOTAM submittals, UOA submittals and facilitate FAA reporting compliance. UASidekick works with Flight Services to provide a portal into their web form which allows NOTAM submittal for 333 and COA holders and allows UOA submittal for Safer Sky's UAV flight reporting. For more information and videos on the use of the app please visit our website at: http://www.uasidekick.com/#videos
This is the first phase of UASidekick app and we consider this Android app to be a BETA version where we are working to continue to refine the current operations and add many more options. We are offering the app for free with a transition over to a subscription beginning early in 2018. The desire is to allow users to evaluate the app and then continue under a paid subscription. This model will allow us to improve the features and sustain the operating cost. We trust that this app will become a valuable tool for your UAV flights.
(A free Flight Service Account is required for the NOTAM submittal. See https://www.1800wxbrief.com for details on creating an account. We also provide an instructional video on linking the Flight Service web to your app on our website at www.UASidekick.com/#videos)
Formats Currently Accepted For NOTAM Submittal:
FAA 333 COA Numbers Format: 2016-AAA-111
FAA 333 Waiver Exemption Number Format: 55555
Class G Notifications
Formats Not Currently Accepted Through The App:
We are working on the inclusion of Part 107 waiver numbers for those required to submit NOTAMs and we will let you know when we have those numbers added.
(We have found some exceptions to the "Currently Accepted" list above so if your COA ID or Waiver is not available when trying to submit a NOTAM in the app please call the National Support Center number that shows with the error message and then request your number be added. We are working with Flight Services to streamline this process if your number is not in their system. Thank you for being patient while we work to make this app the best it can be)
