DronView - web application
A special module of the AisView web application, a practical tool of AIM ANS CR, for pre-flight preparation, intended for operators and pilots of unmanned aircrafts (UAS, drones).
DronView serves primarily to be familiar with the organization of the airspace of the Czech Republic and for flight planning in the part of the airspace, where the operation of drone is possible.
In addition to guaranteed information in terms of airspace management and its planned use, the application enables the display of complex data intended for the needs of civil aviation, including meteorological data.
When using the application, please pay special attention to the following:
- appropriate setting of the filters of the intended height of operation and weight of the drone (the setting is related to the applied operating restrictions)
- correct entry or interpretation of altitude (AGL – height above ground level, AMSL – altitude above mean sea level)
- correct setting or interpretation of flight time or series of flights (time given in UTC - Coordinated Universal Time)
WARNING: The information obtained using DronView in DO NOT replaces the Operational authorizations issued by the Civil Aviation Authority!
