Merry Christmas - Here's A New Map Update!

December 15, 2015 Harriet Jenkins

As a little pre-Christmas gift to our loyal airshare users, we have released another update to the airshare maps today. You will now be able to search the maps to locate a specific address or region, making finding your planned flight location a whole lot easier!

We have also added some extra data layers to provide even more information on airspace restrictions that you need to be aware of.

You will now see green Military Operating Areas (MOAs) and bright blue Restricted Areas (RAs).

To operate a drone in either of these airspaces, you must obtain permission from the administering authority. The contact information of the administering authority can be found in the pop-up tag when you click on the map.

The pop-up tag also includes height data of the MOAs/RAs as some of these airspaces do not start at ground-level like Control Zones do. For example: The MOA, NZM201 near Ardmore, states SFC – 2,300FT meaning the area starts at the earth’s surface (SFC) and ends at 2,300FT.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions or just to wish us a Merry Christmas!

Hoping you have a safe and enjoyable Christmas holiday.
