Try the AirShare App beta release

It's here! The highly anticipated new beta versions of our AirShare web and mobile apps are now available in early release.

You Choose

If you prefer to stay on the AirShare app that you're familiar with, you can absolutely keep using the existing app to log your flights. Both the existing AirShare app and the new beta release will both be available to download and use going forward. All your flight details will still be saved, no matter which option you log in with.

FAQ's

Q. Why have the 4km aerodrome circles changed?

  • New aerodrome zones now display the distance from an aerodrome boundary rather than the centre (consistent with the CAA Part 101 rules).

Q. When do I receive automatic provisional approval from Air Traffic Control?

  • You’ll gain automatic provisional approval if you -

    • log your flight more than 30 mins in advance, and

    • are operating under the CAA Part 101 rules, and

    • are outside sensitive operating areas (sensitive areas include approach fans and above 200ft within 4km of an aerodrome).

Q. Why can’t I cancel a flight, amend a flight or save and retrieve my favourites?

  • These features are still available in our existing AirShare app and we’re working to make them available in the new beta release soon.

Q. When will the transmitting devices be available?

  • Our hardware engineers are working tirelessly to create the best drone tracking and monitoring experience for you. We anticipate an announcement in the coming months. If you’re interested in hearing more about our transmitting devices, please opt-in for updates here.

Q. Why am I unable to get authorisation through AirShare to operate near uncontrolled aerodromes?

  • AirShare provides provisional authorisations for operating in Airways NZ controlled airspace only. Uncontrolled aerodromes are managed independently and authorisations need to be sought directly from them. Their contact details can be found from the AirShare map page.
