Setting Up Your DJI Fly Safe Portal


To make unlocking airspace (or GEO Zones) easier, DJI has created a portal for pilots to manage their drone fleet and unlocking requests better. 

The Fly Safe portal requires you to log into your DJI account to finish setting up your profile. This includes uploading an authorization form on company letterhead. Once DJI has verified your account, the unlocking process is more straightforward than the older Self Unlock and Custom Unlock workflows.

Account

You can manage your drones (or devices) and pilots when you set up your account. However, until the background certification is complete, you cannot create unlocking requests. Setting up your account will take about one hour, but it only needs to be done once.

Click on your account to login or register.

Sample File

[Company Name] uses drones for 3D modeling, earthmoving progress, imagery, safety inspections, and topographic surveys.

The pilot in command (PIC) will set the boundaries of the flight path into the software to avoid the aircraft from flying away, which may cause a loss of connection. PIC will determine and ensure safe Minimum Obstruction Clearance Altitude (MOCA) and that sUAS has the home point before launching. In case of communication loss between sUAS and the controller, sUAS will activate an automatic Return to Home (RTH) sequence. sUAS will enter hover mode for 15 seconds. If communication is not regained, sUAS will climb to a predetermined MOCA and return to the home point. Upon reaching the home point, sUAS will automatically land. If PIC regains control of sUAS before landing, PIC will bring the sUAS to land at the home point. If the cause of communication loss cannot be determined, PIC will end the mission.

In the event of an uncontrolled fly away, VO will immediately call ATC and inform them of the last known location, altitude, and direction of sUAS. PIC will continue to try regaining control of sUAS and/or follow it to determine location.

In the event of unpredicted obstacles or emergencies, or if instructed by ATC to do so, PIC will immediately end the mission by returning sUAS to the home point or landing in a predetermined location, if necessary. 

Device Management

In the Device Management section, you can add your DJI drones by flight controller serial number. After adding a drone, you can edit the details or remove the drone as needed.
