Drone Assist is a global app for drone flight planning and approval, with a #1 ranking in the UK. Developed by Altitude Angel, a leading provider of Unified Traffic Management solutions for drone operators, airspace managers, and landowners.


With Drone Assist, you can plan your drone operations with safety in mind. The app allows you to identify areas to avoid and potential ground hazards that pose safety, security, or privacy risks when flying your drone.

Once you have completed the necessary pre-flight checks, you can create and submit your flight plans through the app. You can also share your plans with other airspace users, helping you stay safe.

In May 2023, we launched our redesigned apps, natively built to offer an enhanced user experience. This update is the result of nearly two years of intensive research and development.

"Every drone pilot needs to use this software. The level of detail you get is incredible and gives you alerts if other drone users are in your area or may be operating. It can also cover you if challenged by anyone - that you have drone flight planning and risk assessment to your best ability."
