Know your drone
Every responsible drone pilot knows their aircraft. User manuals are a great way to get familiar with your drone and the first stop to ensuring it is safe to fly.

B4UFly App
The FAA's B4UFly initiative is a great place to review the rules and airspace before flying. View the B4UFly Airspace Map here.
Safety Rules
Field Resources
Proper documentation is critical for record keeping of aircraft and flights. Many commercial drones automatically log flights, but NCAT recommends supplementary records to ensure continuity across platforms, pilots, and flights. Other log book options can be found here.
