Wing’s OpenSky app may gone on to become a revolutionary drone app for drone pilots. It is considered as a one-step solution for them as the drone pilots can conduct numerous tasks by just a click. Firstly, they can get notified about the places where they cannot fly drones.  The app functionalities work in LAANC-controlled airspaces, as per the FAA regulations. These areas may contain numerous airports.

Without an FAA-approved LAANC provider, drone pilots would require approval from the FAA to operate drones days prior to the deadline. Secondly, the drone app enables you to track and manage your pilot profile effectively.

Even though there are many flight management apps in the market today, Wing’s OpenSky app stands out. Considering this app has aforementioned features, it looks the most ideal.  As Wing has an association with Google, this app is powered by Google Maps.

The app is configured from the same operations that Wing utilizes to accommodate their drone delivery procedures.  Therefore, it has nearly a decade of experience at its disposal.

Future Developments

This is not the first that this drone app has been made public. This app was first publicized in Australia back in 2019 for both recreational and business purposes.  Wing OpenSky was publicly supported by Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA).

After a successful trail down under, Wing held talks with FAA regarding the US-Centric version of the application. We can expect further developments regarding that in the future.
