Hello fellow pilots! First post here, and fairly new to the drone flying industry. I recently obtained my Part 107 certificate and now I am trying to fly my Mavic Pro. I'm not going to lie, this whole airspace thing and being authorized to fly is still a bit confusing, please bear with me. I am trying to fly in a near-by park in San Diego County, which is pretty much covered with No-Fly-Zones. In the B4UFly app planning mode, the point that I wish to fly in, it states that there is a nearby Heliport at a hospital. Switch over to the Airmap App with the FAA-Part 107 mission setting at the same location, there are no advisories. But when I switch the Airmap setting to Fly for Fun under "What's your mission" tab I get the advisory for the hospital. So this is where my confusions lie. If I am Part 107 certified do I need to contact the heliport? Or do I need to call them regardless whenever I plan to fly? I guess I don't understand why the heliport advisory would only show up when "Flying for Fun", and not both. I'm simply trying to fly to get some flight time under my belt. If anyone has any clarification on procedures in layman's terms that would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! - Darren
Hi folks! I'm excited to announce that we'll soon be redesigning the UAV Coach website, as well as this forum. Have gotten some great feedback from you all over the last several months and look forward to rolling everything out soon. In the meantime, in case you missed it on our blog or in our latest community update emails, I wanted to introduce Flyte, a drone flight ops management platform and our newest community sponsor. Click here to request a 30-day trial, and read more about their platform below. What are you using to plan and log your flights? What most people don’t realize about operating sUAS is that 80% of the work happens before and after the flight. That’s the sad reality of being a professional drone pilot. You’ll spend more time planning, logging, rendering and producing data than flying. An app like Flyte can streamline a big chunk of the non-flying part of your operation by helping you: Conduct airspace research. Need to know if you’re flying in controlled or uncontrolled airspace? If there are any other hazards or special airspace considerations in the area? You sure do. Capture / save / send that research. Check out the map below. See the alert and caution icons? And how you can create custom marks on the map? You can save all of that research as well. This is particularly helpful to send to a client or other crew members ahead of time. Good for demonstrating professionalism. Work offline and in-field. Flyte is good for using at home, but you can also use it in the field, before and after flying, to ensure you’re always equipped with the info and resources needed for strong situational awareness and in-the-moment logging. Log your flights, batteries, and aircraft. Even if you’re not a certified sUAS operator, you should be mindful of logging your battery usage and aircraft maintenance schedule. That’s just...taking care of your stuff. Not to mention the safety considerations. Flyte was built for both individual operators and teams. Their platform enables management of multiple pilots, drones, risk assessment / documentation to ensure the effective management and digital records of all activities.

I have a P3 Standard and was wondering if anyone has an app recommendation? Of course, I already have to GO app. I'm curious about Airnest or Litchi. They both look great but are they? What are the pros and cons? Would love any input you can provide. Cheers, Wendy
