As you move around the map, you will notice that the advisory icons located near the search bar will change colors. These colors indicate varying hazard levels pertaining to your location or your flight plan that may require you to take action before being cleared for takeoff and/or action that is required in the area of flight. These advisories are present in AirMap’s mobile and web applications as well as within the Advisory API on the AirMap platform.
Green - Areas with a Green status in the advisories symbol indicate that no action by the remote pilot in order to fly legally.
