Interactive map provides drone pilots with direction

Since the new German regulation governing the operation of unmanned aerial vehicles came into force, there has been a huge demand for information, not just concerning legal issues, but also local conditions.

On the Website map2fly , Hamburg-based company FlyNex provides an interactive map that drone pilots can use to gain information about the relevant conditions and regulations. Based on the location of the planned ascent and the planned altitude, the service provides an overview of airspaces, infrastructure, and admin-related information. For example, the map shows conservation areas, draws attention to airfields and helipads, and depicts the location of buildings and traffic routes. This enables copter pilots to establish the relevant specifics and local regulations in advance of their planned drone flight.

The map is currently in the beta stage. FlyNex targets both private drone pilots and corporate users. In addition to the interactive map, its digital products and services also include an extensive collection of documents outlining the relevant rules and the App FlySchool , available for Android and iOS and as a cross-platform Web App.
