AirMap Recommended Guidelines
AirMap recommends avoiding flights near schools, prisons, hospitals, power plants and other critical infrastructure that are sensitive or hazardous for drone flight. Avoid flying near these facilities to maximize the safety and security of your drone operation. AirMap Recommended Guidelines appear as orange shapes on the map.
Depending on the place, time, and context of your drone operation, some rules may require additional action or precaution be taken by the pilot. These required rules often include country-level restrictions, such as those for national parks and military operating areas, and often appear as red shapes on the map. For example, in the United States, the landing or taking off of any aircraft within a National Park is prohibited. Check with the source of these airspace regulation providers to obtain a permit or waiver to fly in these areas, if available. Required rules should be observed and cannot be turned off in the AirMap web app. To learn more about a specific Required Rule, click the icon.
