Drone Assist is the #1 drone safety app from Altitude Angel in the UK. It provides an interactive map of the sky and is used by general aviation, balloon pilots, other airspace users, and of course, drone pilots! Our map data is currently most effective in the UK, but will work in other GEOs and we are continually adding new country-specific map data. It allows you to see areas to avoid or in which extreme caution should be exercised, as well as ground hazards that may pose safety, security, or privacy risks when flying your drone.

The Drone Assist app has been built natively for optimised performance on Android.

Great app but doesn't work properly on Android. iOS works fine. You see a flight restriction on the map and press it and the details comes up at the bottom but this doesn't happen on the Android app or if it does it's very rarely and sporadically. Edit - all issues fixed in the latest update. Thanks 👍🏻

Great app for checking the weather conditions before you fly your drone. I submit my flight plans before I fly as well. It's a must have app if you fly drones.
