Whether you're a hobbyist or professional drone pilot, DroneMaps makes it easy to view FAA Sectionals and UAS Facility Maps.
You'll use the compass icon to center the map on your location. Then click on the layer icon to select a base layer and overlay.
Base layers include Google Maps and FAA Sectionals. You can toggle UAS Facility Maps as an overlay on one of the base layers.
UAS Facility Maps show the maximum altitudes around airports where the FAA may authorize part 107 UAS operations without additional safety analysis. These maps DO NOT authorize operations in these areas at the depicted altitudes – they are for informational purposes ONLY.
DroneMaps is a work in progress and I plan on releasing more layers in the near future. If you have any suggestions please reach out to me on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/dennisbaldwin
- Updated FAA sectional charts
- You can now zoom one layer closer into FAA sectionals

Great app for Faa authorization requests
Really helps to visualize Faa height limits and eases getting information for 107 flight authorizations!
One suggestion? I’d like to be able to adjust the overlays opacity. It’s kind of hard to see the maps under them.
I’ll second what others have said. It’s a very good app. I would love to have the ability to zoom in more on a specific area though. The zoom maxes out when I need a bit more. It’s pretty hard to read info in a TFR for example.
I was actually getting frustrated with the ArcGIS UASFMs earlier today because it kept crashing. It’s already being talked about in my Drone U group so the community is taking notice. I would say adjusting the opacity on the UASFMs would help. Great job
