ATC and Drones

THE CHALLENGE: Don’t Crash My Drone

Create an app that will enable small drone operators to know more about specific weather parameters, local terrain and no fly zones within a five-mile radius of their GPS location.


The goal is to be able to use normal resources such as ATIS or AWOS broadcasts to determine if conditions at the airport are VFR and eventually fly the pattern. Eventually the long term reach of this project is to determine if drones can integrate into existing ATC infastructure.
