This must be a joke. Pretty much 99% of the time you have to notify airport to even fly on your backyard because guess what? Pretty much every space in this country is occupy by airspace. I'm not kidding, even public park are off limit for crying out loud. Good luck having fun without being harassed by the money generating blue vest.
Doesn't work The app opens and the big grey circle just spins and spins but never loads anything. If the FAA wants to say it's OUR responsibility to make sure we fly safely, then they need to produce the proper tools for this. The fact people are actually downloading this app shows people are trying to do just that. The rating of this app on the other hand shows the complete opposite on the FAA's part.
Entrapment? Never got it to open properly. Is this a form of entrapment? I mean they know who downloaded the app so they have a record of who you are and where you're located. Perhaps this is yet another tool for the revenue agencies that are the local police to exploit and extort money out of people that are trying to be law abiding citizens. Our tax dollars hard at work. I'm deleting this app immediately.
Lost in Airspace This app almost never works. It never opens and is as useful as a plane without wings. I would have a better chance of knowing if I was in a class D Airspace by putting my ear to the ground and listening for jet engines. Don't waste your time loading it on your phone or tablet.
Wow, I've never seen an app rated so low, but I see why... You'd think with all the horrible feedback, the developers might take note and make some improvements (or perhaps just start over)... but this is truly awful. For such a crucial and urgently needed application, this is the worst possible implementation.
Worst app in the market - FAA made UAS operation less safe with this The FAA releases this, essentially killing the many useful tools that existed before this junk. Now we're left with a completely useless app and no alternatives. Congratulations, FAA - you literally made UAS operations inarguably less safe than it was before you "fixed" it. FIX THIS APP - grade school kids produce higher quality software than this mess.
