For a few years now, civilian drones have been flying above our heads. Such technology concentrations targeted at the general public are now undergoing an impressive boom. What is warning to the public authorities, which amended the law on the use of these ‘aircraft circulating without anyone on board’ on 1 January 2016. Decryption
It’s a drone and a drone
There are two types in the field of civil aerial drones, not based on the machines themselves, but on how they are used.
Therefore, on the one hand, the legislation defines drones intended for use only for recreation or competition (such as drone races, for example, Star Wars style)! ) and we’re talking more about “model aircraft”; and drones for industrial use (cinema, audiovisual, photography) or technical use, on the other hand; (topographical surveys, aerial observation and surveillance in agriculture, industry, etc.).
There are so many “specific activities” that are subject to specific requirements and usually include the possession of permits given by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC). All right? But we’re continuing…
DRONE OWNERS OVER 800 G MUST NOW EQUIP THEIR DEVICES WITH AN ELECTRONIC SIGNALING System (ANTENNA OR Upgrade OF SOFTWARE) THAT IDENTIFIES THEM.
TWO WEIGHTS, TWO Operation
According to the law of 1 January 2016, model aircraft or, if you have followed, drones intended for recreation or competition, are also divided into two categories :
category A for UAVs up to 25 kg and category B for “heavy-duty” models and for which, again, a flight authorization must be obtained from the DGAC attesting to the capabilities of the model aircraft and its remote operator.
But what about the “droner” license for model aircraft of this type A, that is, the vast majority of recreational drones that you can find on sale in the High Tech store, worthy heirs of the scale models, and which are the happiness of an ever wider audience today?
Where am I able to fly with my drone? FIND THE EXPERTS’ Perspective
Fly, YOU Should, BUT NOT JUST ANY OLD WAY …
Take your garden down, immortalize your wedding, beach movies…
These are all cases in which you are unable to use your remotely piloted aircraft a priori…
There are also, and this is very common, certain rules of use to fly in compliance with the law, whether drones or mini drones .
Laws can be summarized according to ten points.
Ten commandments to be followed scrupulously under the punishment of being slapped by the patrol on the fingers and the wallet.
- I do not fly over people (nor animals) (nor animals).
- I value the maximum heights for a flight.
- I never lose sight of my drone, and at night, I don’t use it.
- In built-up areas, I do not use my drone in public spaces.
- Near aerodromes, I do not use my drone.
- I do not travel over fragile or protected areas (no-fly zones).
- I value others’ privacy.
- Without the permission of the people concerned, I do not broadcast my shots and I do not make commercial use of them.
- I review the conditions for the practice of this operation under which I am insured.
Uh. 10. I get details in case of doubt… From who you know, of course, the DGAC!
It can not be improvised to get into the airspace (because that’s what it is), so you would have grasped it.
But do not let your ability to get laid breach these few rules!
Make your decision between Parrot and DJI drones and take to the sky!
That the world is more beautiful, as we know, as seen from above!
