    Flying in Slovenia - laws and regulations?

    Hello, I'm planning to fly in Slovenia in a couple of days, I am an EU registered operator already, I'm from Spain. But I would like to know more specific laws to fly there, and the official no-drone map. I found this online: Drone Laws in Slovenia | UAV Coach (2023) One of the laws says: Keep...

    Local government doesn't mention drone laws.

    Flying a drone for commerical use and have gotten permission from the business. My local government doesn't have any information on their stance on drones. Just wondering if that means I defer to the FAA or if I should still ask my local government if it's ok to fly. I'm Part 107 licensed. Thanks!

    EASA is killing our hobby, yet no one is doing anything about it…

    Hello, you might know that I like to disagree with the drone rules and regulations, I still follow them (most of the time, that is) but I have strong feeling that EASA is trying to make drone flying impossible in the future. Let me explain: They are introducing many irrelevant rules that don't...

    Vietnam Drone Rules In Practice

    I'm planning a trip to Vietnam soon (they are reopening to tourists in March 2022). I am wondering if anyone from Vietnam or travelers with experience there could help me understand how drone laws are applied there in practice. I've read all the usual websites summarizing the rules. In short...

    VLOS rule makes flights boring - do you follow it?

    Hello, I have been flying drones for 1 year now and with my first drone VLOS wasn't a problem, the drone itself was big, bigger than a phantom 4 pro, and the range was limited (about 1 km max at 120 m / 400 ft) and you could see it from very far away. 6 months ago I got myself a mavic air 2...

    "Operating" a drone in a space versus just "flying over" a space

    I see a lot of regulations that prohibit "taking off, landing, and operating a UAV in X space." However, they do allow UAVs to fly over that space. (And also, the FAA allows UAVs to fly over any non-FAA-regulated space) What is the difference between "operating" a UAV and simply "flying over" a...

    Should I add weight to my Mini to fly in Portugal (Madeira)

    I might be lucky enough to get away for 10 days in Madeira over Christmas and have been doing some research into drone laws which seem to be the same as mainland Portugal. One thing I've seen is that "toy drones" cannot be flown above 30m. Toy drones seem to be defined as under 250g. Obviously...

    Not always the drone operators who are wrong

    I try and fly by the rules and do the correct thing. In Switzerland I wanted to fly my drone about 4km from a heliport (Interlaken) so technically within the 5km zone. After telephoning the airport I was sent by email a form to complete. For some reason, the heliport wanted 24 hours notice...

    Hello everyone! I'm from Mexico, but I'm living in Belgium (at least until next October). I bought a Mavic Mini to enjoy all the amazing European views but for that I was doing my research about what can and can't I do with my Mavic Mini. I've found a lot of information about Mavic Mini is...

    Got arrested in Europe with a fine of 470 euros.

    I hope you'll find this message helpful. Well, I had my wedding trip in February through Denmark, Germany and Netherlands and everything was perfect until the day "x". The only thing I knew about regulations was the maximum flight height (which is 120 metres or so). I always fly with respect to...
