UPDATE: This service is no longer available.
DJI’s No Fly Zones are a great safety feature on the DJI GO app (formerly the DJI Pilot) but for qualified commercial pilots who fly with the Phantom 3
, the Inspire 1
and the new Matrice 100
it has seriously restricted their operations. The app limits where you can fly and was designed to stop inexperienced pilots from flying their drones into controlled or restricted airspace, especially around airports. The last thing you want to see is reckless or beginner pilots flying their drone into the engine of a fully laden airliner that's just taken off.
Qualified drone pilots however have been trained about the strict regulations surrounding airports and other restricted areas such as power stations, defence establishments and transmitter masts. Commercial pilots are often commissioned to film in or near this type of location and would normally apply for permission through local Air Traffic Control and the owners or relevant organisations.
Now DJI is offering a temporary unlocking service to operators until a permanent online service is made available. Commercial pilots will have to apply each time they need software restrictions lifted and will have to fill in the forms on our website before we forward them to DJI on your behalf.
