Airnest Drone Flight Logging Tool
Today, drone pilots can begin logging their flights with Airnest, a simple, free cloud-based logbook platform. It makes it easy to share with other drone enthusiasts, including a handy GPS-based map showing the flight of the drone.

Pilots can sync flights automatically when using the Airnest app or upload logs from other services such as DroneDeploy. Soon, Airnest will offer the ability to upload logs from DJI GO and other providers.
“It’s amazing to see your own flight data presented in such a simple, understandable way – diagnosing potential problems is going to be much easier,” Justin Miller, filmmaker and co-founder of Airnest, said.
While competitors in the market have similar offerings, Airnest is the only platform that offers an app for drone control and flight planning. It’s also the first to offer a simple way to share flights. The Airnest app is now available for free on the Apple App Store.
A similar idea was used by beloved science fiction golden age writer Jack Williamson in his amazing 1936 novel The Cometeers; perhaps fans may remember the cartograph:
He reached to unsnap the cartograph from his belt. He had brought that tiny instrument to map their movements. He opened the cover and peered at the strip.
"We're nearly seven miles from where the prison used to be," he said thoughtfully.
