DroneUp is about more than flying. DroneUp was built by drone pilots for drone pilots. Finally, drone operators can use one app that provides:

* Opportunities to assist our communities during crisis or emergency situations
* Regular drills and training exercises to ensure you are “mission ready”
* Secure chat channels for drill and mission participants and mission commanders
* Free basic UAS operations training (including quizzes)
* Free top-quality Part 107 training and sample test
* On-point weather. Current location or move around the map.
* Comprehensive airspace awareness (local, regional and national information)

DroneUp facilitates safety, fellowship, emergency assistance and commerce for a network of pilots of unmanned aerial vehicles using a mobile application connected to cloud servers. You’re joining the central resource and community for drone pilots worldwide.

Get the basics of safe and legal UAV operation through the requirements for commercial Remote Pilot certification through the FAA. You’ll see current and specific warnings and alerts relating to the location of the Pilot, including FAA Notices to Airman (NOTAM’s), proximity to airports and airspace restrictions for that location.

DroneUp members see the location of other members on our maps. Check their status and communicate using voice, chat or text. Record your hours and flights and see how you compare to other pilots, earn ranks and badges, building seniority, and join our forums to share best practices and stories around your flights and missions.

Emergency Assistance:
DroneUp certified members will be registered to receive alerts when law enforcement or first responders need drone assistance. Upon receiving an alert, DroneUp members arrive on scene and the senior Pilot becomes the liaison with law enforcement and/or first responders. DroneUp members can be certified for the Drone Assisted Response Team (DART).

DroneUp Commercial certification is granted based on course completion, test results and submission, and examination of flight logs. Basic Safety and Operations and Part 107 Courses offered for free!

Incident Response and Command Center Support:
DroneUp® provides incident commanders the ability to utilize and manage UAV pilots during emergency response situations. Powered by GAMPS® (Geospatial Automated Mission Processing System), DroneUp instantly identifies, notifies, and deploys qualified drone operators in any geospace. DroneUp’s robust enterprise platform and lightweight mobile apps enable agencies to leverage the rapidly growing UAV community, dramatically increasing resources and improving emergency response outcomes.

DroneUp helps agencies overcome the roadblocks currently inhibiting the use of volunteer drone operators by developing a database of known resources, creating a common mission management platform, providing encrypted mission communication links, ensuring volunteer readiness through training and exercises, and enabling particular resource assignment.

Latest update broke training


The latest update that took the training out of the app and put it on the web completely broke it. Though if I’m being honest, it didn’t work very well before, either. The entire app feels like a poorly coded web app in a native wrapper. Which is a complete shame because I was super excited about the entire concept. But in this form it simply doesn’t work.

#1 App for Drone Operators


Superb app for drone training and operations. Easy to use and intuitive. Training certification and tracking a huge plus. Airspace mapping, rules, advisories, and information beats other apps. Please continue to improve. Has the potential to be the SOLE hub for all commercial and hobby drone operators to gather and file flight info, join forums, meet other operators, post media, etc.

Fake Reviews


Talk about fake It’s nowhere near a full service social flying app as advertised and has several defects still.
I wasn’t even going to write a review and instead wanted to give it more time, but the OBVIOUS fake reviews here just lost all of my respect and desire to use or recommend this program. There are already better options out there, so shop around for an honest one that works well.
It’s a 3 star app tops. I gave it 1 to offset the fake 5 stars all over the place.
