So, I will be bringing my Mini 3 Pro to Italy and Switzerland next month and I have done the following and am curious if I am within regulations or if there is something else I am missing. So far I have:

1. Received the A1-A3 certificate
2. Registered on D-Flight for Italy (my first country of visit)
3. Purchased an insurance policy
4. I will be printing my UAS operator label and applying it to the drone

So my questions are:

1. Is there anything else I need?
2. What app do you recommend to see restricted airspace? D-Flight only gives me data for Italy but nowhere else in the EU?

Thank you for any help provided!

Looks like you're covered for flights in EU.

Here it becomes tricker unfortunately... EU doesn't have a combined drone map regarding airspace, all countries either have their own or nothing easily accessible at all. Above that it can also be several different maps in a country to give you the full picture of where you can fly... my own country for instance, Sweden. They have one map for the airspace itself then another regarding National parks & protected nature areas where it's always a NFZ.

The closest I can share for different official drone maps over each country in EU is this compilation below...
EUROPEAN DRONE AUTHORITIES AND DRONE NO-FLY ZONES

That's a great resource. Thanks! I found the Swiss no fly zone map earlier this week but I was hoping there was some kind of central website or app, but as you say there is not.

May I ask what company you got your drone insurance from?

I'm also headed to the EU soon (in late September, to Malta), also bringing my Mini 3 Pro. I got the training/certificate via Ireland so that should be covered, but Malta requires insurance, and I still need to accomplish that (and interestingly, gaining access to their online airspace map requires providing your insurance)...so I'm looking for an insurance outfit that works but doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Got a pointer? Thanks.

Sorry for my slow response. I got mine through Skywatch: SkyWatch | #1 Aviation and Drone Insurance for $55 for a single month and the required $1M coverage.

Grab the Swiss U-Space (formerly Skyguide) app and create an account. It's breaks down air space restrictions and helps you plan your flight missions while in Switzerland

Hi Jonathan,
how did you get your certificate? website?
D-Flight is in Italian. Is there an English site?
Who did you get your insurance from?
Thanks, Wayne
