Drones represent an exciting development in aviation technology and offer new opportunities for emergency services, businesses and individuals across the globe.

However, if not flown safely they can pose a risk to other airspace uses, people on the ground and the operator, which is why we want to ensure the world’s busy skies are safe and accessible for everyone.

 

 

The launch of the GoDrone mobile and web apps is the first step in enabling LVNL to build the Netherlands the infrastructure it needs to open Dutch airspace for special flight operations, to commercial drone use and ultimately BVLOS flight.

Flight Planning Tools

Our range of flight planning tools, offered both independently and as part of our wider work with ANSPs and National Aviation Authorities, make operating a drone safely as easy as possible. We encourage drone users to download the most appropriate app to their geography to gain an understanding of airspace regulations and to register flights. Happy (safe) flying!

GODRONE

Region: Netherlands | Created for LVNL

Since the GoDrone app was launched in April 2020, drone pilots have been able to see the zones in which they can and cannot fly. In addition, professional drone pilots can map out their provisional flight plan for drone flights in controlled airspace and submit it for approval. The final goal is to ensure that drones and other air traffic can move safely through the same airspace, now and in the future. GoDrone features innovative features especially for airspace users in The Netherlands.

 

The GoDrone Operator Portal provides more information.

The free app is available in the Apple Store and Google Play store.

NINOX DRONE

Region: Norway | Created for: Avinor

The Ninox Drone app launched a new era in Norway’s aviation history built around Altitude Angel's Unified Traffic Management (UTM) platform.

Through the GuardianUTM Operator Portal, drone pilots can:

  • Register a user account.
  • Manage organisations, aircraft and Drone Operator fleets.
  • Submit and obtain digital pre-flight clearance to operate in controlled airspace to multiple airports across Norway.
  • Submit and obtain digital take-off clearance at those same facilities.
  • Receive dynamic, in-flight instructions from Air Traffic Control.
  • Declare an emergency status (i.e. loss of control) to Air Traffic Control. 

By unlocking the incredible potential of drones and UAM to transform lives and revolutionise businesses, safely and securely, Avinor and Altitude Angel via Ninox are leading the way in deploying GuardianUTM to serve – and strengthen – the emerging drone and UAM industries.
