10 iPhone apps every drone pilot should have

Getting interested in drones for pleasure or work? There are a number of great apps out there that can help make your flight planning a lot easier, and here are 10 that I’ve personally had a lot of luck with:

AirMap: For those who are FAA-certificated drone pilots, AirMap (see slideshow below) is an essential part of your toolbox. This free app lets you access airspace advisories, file digital notices, manage aircraft, and more. Get a flight weather briefing, see real-time traffic alerts, and fill out checklists before a flight. The app usually gets 4-star ratings on the iTunes App Store. You immediately see all controlled airspace,  heliports, and schools — all areas that should be avoided or at least known prior to flight. Soon, US Part 107 pilots will be able to request automated FAA airspace authorization to fly in controlled airspace with the app (currently being tested in Cincinnati, Lincoln, Reno, and San Jose). 

Those anonymous sources said execs from Wiston toured the city last week and have shortlisted a few parcels including one plot close to the airport. The Taiwan-based manufacturer, which began making the iPhone SE in India this year.

Apple has set its sights on the growing Indian market by pushing for shipments of the smartphone model with the goal of doubling the iPhone’s market share in the country over the next five years. Focus Taiwan reported in August that the tech giant signed up Wistron to assemble the new iPhone SEs after the Taiwanese firm started to produce the model in India in May, targeting markets around the world.
