How to: Plan a Mission in the Field App
Planning Basic Missions
The FlyFreely Field App (FA) allows Remote Pilots to quickly plan basic missions on their mobile device. This is ideal for last minute ‘in field’ planning and execution. For more complex missions and access to mapping and airspace functionality, please use the Office App (instructions on mission planning in the Office App are here).
To start planning your mission, open the Field App and make sure you are working in the correct organisation. Tap the New Mission button to begin.
The next screen is Mission Details, where you’ll input the essential details of your mission, including operation type and workflow, RPA/s and remote pilot details. The map will record your current location, which will be used as the mission location. Please note that this area of the Field App does not include the full features of the Office App and isn’t intended as a replacement.
Once you’ve completed your mission details, tap Start Mission to move save and move to the next stage of the mission, in which you will validate your Job Safety Assessment, complete any pre-flight checklists and conduct your flight/s.
