About this app

B4UFLY is the simple way for drone operators to check airspace and local advisories before taking flight. Stay compliant and contribute to safer national airspace by making yourself aware of advisories and restrictions in the airspace and local advisories around you.

With B4UFLY, you simply open the app and select where you want to fly to see the status of the airspace selected, as well as details regarding surrounding advisories. B4UFLY is provided through a partnership between the FAA and Aloft (formerly Kittyhawk). Learn more at https://aloft.ai/b4ufly/

We have also added new crowdsourcing functionality for people to contribute to our global advisory and compliance database. You can flag areas for review and submit new locations for addition to B4UFLY advisories from within the app, or you can also visit this page to submit areas for review at https://aloft.ai/b4ufly-data-submission-form/.

If you have a general question or comment about UAS or drones, please send us an email at UASHelp@faa.gov or call us at 844-FLY-MY-UA (359-6982) 8am – 4pm ET Monday – Friday.

update: no longer working. can't find my location and yes, it's enabled. reinstalled twice. giving up. took a little time to figure out all the information contained in the app, but it's one I use before every launch. you can't assume it's always OK to fly where you are, even if you've flown there before. conditions change and this app tells you what you need to know.

Hi there. This should all be resolved. Note you may need to clear your cache or simply delete and reinstall if you're still having issues. If you need direct support, please reach out to b4ufly@aloft.ai.

Great App, but it can't be a sole resource. It does NOT include wilderness area! That is a very easy feature to add, since there are shapefiles available, but for some reason they aren't in here? If they were in here, it would easily be 5 stars. Wilderness areas are crucial to know, especially here in the PNW where we are surrounded by them, but alas, I have to use a separate app for that.

Hi, Brandon. Aloft has been in touch with the National Park Service about using Aloft's Geo Portal to upload and include this data. We hope to have their data live and visible for drone pilots in the near future. In the meantime, please feel free to use our submission forms to note any areas that you believe are incorrect or missing.

Great app, but needs work. The only thing I can think of that needs added, Is notifications. Getting live notifications via push, of aircraft approaching your airspace, would be excellent. A few times I've had a flyby low altitude plane and an unmarked helicopter pass through quickly. Audible noise prompted an emergency landing, but prior notice would really make a huge difference. I use a few different apps, but nothing offers push notifications regarding air traffic, only weather changes.
