FAA releases B4UFLY App Beta Test For Drone Users

James Fee's Blog - Sat, 2015-08-29 00:38

Well what could go wrong?

The B4UFLY app, aimed primarily at model aircraft enthusiasts, is designed to give users information about restrictions or requirements in effect at their current or planned flight location. The FAA expects the beta test will yield valuable data on how well B4UFLY functions, as well as uncovering any software bugs.

So first, it’s a private beta so you probably aren’t invited.  You can email b4ufly@faa.gov if you want to give it a shot and ask to be in the private beta.  Second, the app looks simple but I suspect the rules are going to be complex and thus the app will be less than easy to use.  Still if you want to fly your drone, this could be the start of something good.  Tomorrows, my birthday, feel free to buy me one.
