The FAA’s B4UFLY service shows where recreational flyers can and cannot fly. Starting February 1, 2024, recreational flyers who only fly their drone for fun have more resources to choose from. 

The FAA has approved four companies to provide B4UFLY services through desktop and mobile applications. B4UFLY provides situational awareness to recreational flyers and other drone users.
