B4UFly Privacy Impact Assessment

Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) B4UFLY mobile application provides unmanned hobbyist aircraft operators (hereafter known as "Users") a tool to determine whether it is safe and legal to fly a small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) within their geographic area. B4UFLY does not collect, generate, or maintain Users’ Personally-Identifiable Information (PII). However, Users who choose to download B4UFLY from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store must first fulfill Apple or Google’s registration requirements prior to downloading the application which may include the provision of sensitive personal information. The FAA developed this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to document the steps taken by the FAA to protect B4UFLY Users’ privacy when using the geolocation functionality when using the application and when providing information to the Apple App Store or Google Play Store before downloading the B4UFLY mobile application.
