Flyzones

Drawing Flyzones

Creating flyzones is an essential part of planning drone flights, and you can do this in both the Drone Operation Center and the Ground Control IOS and Android apps.

Drone Operation Center

  1. Create a new mission by clicking the “New Mission” button in the top-left menu or by going to the “Mission” tab in the left sidebar of the Drone Operation Center. Then, click on the “New Flight” button in the top right corner of the Mission page.
  2. You will be redirected to the New Mission page.
  3. On the map, you will find several icons in the top-right corner. The second icon from the left is for drawing flyzones.
  4. Click on the Flyzone icon and use it to draw points on the map, outlining the area where you intend to fly your drone.
  5. You can also mark no-fly zones due to restrictions by clicking the Flyzone icon, selecting “No Flyzone” from the menu, and drawing the restricted area on the map.
Ground Control IOS App

  1. Upon opening the IOS app, you will automatically start on the “Flyzones” page. Alternatively, you can navigate to this page by tapping on “Flyzones” in the bottom left corner.
  2. Select the location where you want to fly by clicking the “Fly here” button on the map. This will take you to the map screen.
  3. On the map screen, click on the flyzone icon, which is the second icon on the upper left menu.
  4. Use this icon to draw points on the map, defining the area where you plan to fly your drone.
  5. You can also mark no-fly zones due to restrictions by clicking the Flyzone icon, selecting “No Flyzone” from the pop-out menu, and drawing the restricted area on the map.
Ground Control Android App

Marking flyzone in the Android app is similar to the iOS.

  1. Similar to the iOS app, when you open the Android app, you will start on the “Flyzones” page by default. Alternatively, you can access this page by tapping on “Flyzones” in the bottom left corner.
  2. Select the location where you intend to fly by clicking the “Fly here” button on the map. This will bring you to the map screen.
  3. On the map screen, click on the flyzone icon, which is the first icon in the bottom menu.
  4. Use this icon to draw points on the map, outlining the area where you plan to fly your drone.
  5. Just like in the IOS app, you can mark no-fly zones due to restrictions by clicking the Flyzone icon, selecting “No Flyzone” from the pop-out menu, and drawing the restricted area on the map.

By marking flyzones and no-fly zones, you ensure that your drone flight remains compliant with regulations and safety requirements.
