Flight permit: Flight permit for drones

In most cases you will not need a permit for flying a drone. We explain in which case you need one.


In which case do I need a flight permit before the start?

You do not need a flight permission for drones, if they

  • fly under the open category of the EU drone regulation
  • have a take-off weight of under 25 kg
  • fly within sight range and
  • in a height of max. 120 m.

You also do not need a permission for a night flight anymore.

Not permitted without prior authorization: flying over crowds, power stations or hospitals on and near airports and local no-fly areas.
