FAA Releases Improved App

The Federal Aviation Administration has redeveloped their mobile application to provide situational awareness to recreational flyers in knowing whether it is safe to fly their drone or model aircraft in a particular area. The application utilizes interactive maps and GPS technology to alert recreational flyers where they can and cannot fly. The application is free, and is available at the App Store for iOS and the Google Play store for Android.
