Here's an update on my drone App I'm working on. No fly zones are marked with 5 mile radiuses around airports. Here's a quick overview of some of the features added so far, but there's still a lot of work to be done:
- Directional markers (in blue) indicate nearby flight hazards, including airports, helipads, balloon ports and seaplane bases. I plan to include others, such as stadiums, schools, hospitals, etc as popular places to avoid.
- The map works standalone so you can pan across to view other areas as well, and also as a compass so you can see nearby hazards more efficiently.
- TFRs are pulled from the FAA announcements page and displayed within the App. The shape data is not rendered to the map yet, but it is being worked on.
- Flight Logs are being added, so you can keep track of all the important information regarding your flights. This may be useful for future licensure, if the government should require it.
