Help to ensure you’re flying your drone safely in the UK using Drone Assist, the drone safety app from NATS, the UK’s main Air Traffic Control provider, in partnership with Altitude Angel.
Drone Assist provides location-based information on areas of airspace to avoid or in which extreme caution should be exercised, as well as on ground hazards that may pose safety, security or privacy risks.
Many drone pilots don’t realise that there are rules, set by the UK Civil Aviation Authority, for where and how you can fly your drone. This app will help you to abide by those rules, providing a tool to assist you in enjoying flying your drone whilst protecting your safety and the safety of other airspace users.
