UK Data Coverage: Enhanced

Today, we are pleased to announce that we have released additional aerial hazard data on our drone safety map. The data is delivered using our new ‘pipeline’ technology ensuring it is dynamically refreshed and available as soon as changes are officially published.

The new data are based on ENR 5.3 ENR 5.5 of the UK AIP and include:

  • Glider Sites
  • Parachuting Sites
  • Hang-gliding Sites
  • Parascending Sites
  • Hot Air Balloon Sites
  • Ultra Light Sites
  • HIRTAs (High Intensity Radio Transmission Areas)
  • Gas Venting Sites

These areas represent a subset of the available data in ENR 5.3 and ENR 5.5 and have been selected based on requests from our users. We will monitor usage and feedback over the next few weeks, before we determine if further data from ENR 5.3 and ENR 5.5 should also be included.

If you’d like to submit feedback or suggestions to us, please email [email protected] or use the feedback feature in our apps.
