Our goal is to bring all members of the flying community onto a common flight awareness platform.  This goal would include both manned and unmanned operations together with all support personnel.

Why We Took On This Challenge:

The UASidekick app was originally developed due to the struggles the UAV pilot faced to maintain compliance with FAA requirements – it quickly grew to encompass much more.   The development of this app was centered around the Safe Sky’s initiative promoted by the FAA. We have continued to steer the development of the app towards the support of airspace de-confliction and the improvement of communications between pilots, federal entities, and the general public.  To that end, we provide a membership into the Coalition of UAS Professionals ( for all those that download our app.  The collaboration between UASidekick and the grassroots efforts of the Coalition of UAS Professionals provides a stronger platform to facilitate the successful growth of unmanned aerial robotics in technology, educational programs, and public outreach. We are pilots, and we have invested in the idea that there is a better way to do things.  We also believe that the workload associated with many of the necessary tasks of flying can be eased through technology and enhanced communication.   Our commitment to you is to continue improving the app based on your feedback and ideas,  iteratively releasing new features that will help both the UAS sector and the public it serves. Thank you for your support as we endeavor to help grow this amazing industry.

We are the women behind Women and Drones
