In this 10-minute video, our instructor Laurent explains the general structure of the European legislation, the possibilities, and the conditions you must meet as a drone pilot.
A must-see for every beginning and advanced drone pilot! But of course, there is so much more than this. We cover it all in our course ‘EU legislation’.
Also on this page:
Mainly a hobby but commercial is also possible if restrictions are respected. General rule: the heavier the drone, the further away from people.
No permission is needed, but rules must be respected:
A device with ‘Cx’ certification (= safety systems present: remote ID, geo-awareness), indicated below by C0, C1, C2, C3, C4
NEEDED: theoretical training + theoretical exam (necessary with a C1 aircraft, recommended with a C0 aircraft)
When? If the limitation of Open cannot be respected.
Because of the high risk, there is an obligation to prove through a risk assessment that it is safe to fly:
Specific Operation Risk Assessment (SORA)
