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.

Unfinished app? The app refuses to load a view of any map. When I type in an address I get a message saying "unsupported location". There seems to be no settings button in the app anywhere. This app feels half baked and does not seem to provide the information of where it it safe to fly. It is a shame since there are 2 airports within a 30 minute drive from my location.

I have been flying for about 2 years and have used the program every once in a while if I were in a area I thought might be questionable or need authorization. Recently I have been using it for every flight. It helps me make sure it is ok to fly the area and also makes me slow down and check the items that are required and anything else that helps me be safer, more aware and have fun. It also feel it helps me prepare for any future changes That might come.

This app is incredibly helpful. Im new to drones and was reviewing the sectional maps of my area and started to get worried because of how difficult and tedious they are to read. I was feeling discourag3d because of how little space there is, at first glance, to fly. This app both makes it very simple to see if you can legally fly in your current (or any) airspace, and it turns out i was wrong, there is plenty of room to fly! The app also has several different ways to view the map which is great
