Following the development of a new radar technology that will detect drones flying around Airports, the US has flowed suit.

The Federal Aviation Administration(FAA) has finalised plans to launch an iOS app that will show owners of  unmanned aerial vehicles-Drones, when and where fly them.

A representative of the Federal Aviation Administration(FAA) said:  “Longtime members of the unmanned aircraft community may already know the answer to that question. Someone who got their first unmanned aircraft as a gift under the Christmas tree probably doesn’t.”

This initiative is a starting phase in the development of a regulatory framework that will guide the use of consumer and commercial drones.

The iOS app is called B4UFLY. An Android version is in the works.
