Apply for permission for unmanned aerial equipment


Permission may be required to operate a flight model or unmanned aerial system. Whether you need a permit depends on the device and location.

You do not need permission if your aircraft:

  • has less than five kilograms of total mass,
  • only has electric drive (the number of drives does not matter),
  • operated only during the day and in sight,
  • at a distance greater than 1.5 kilometres from the limitation of aerodromes (i.e. airports, commercial and special landing sites and gliding sites),
  • controlled airspace (e.B. control zones at airports),
  • does not fly more than 100 metres above ground or water (except for operation on approved model aerodging sites or the controller operating flight models shall have a corresponding certificate or valid flight licence),
  • flight over certain areas, installations and routes is not generally prohibited.

If the list does not apply to your aircraft/flight model, you will need an operating permit from the competent aviation authority for the area in Saxony-Anhalt and, if necessary, the air traffic control clearance from the tower of the Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH (DFS) of the airport.

For the operation of unmanned aeronautical systems over 2 kg take-off mass, proof of knowledge is required since 1 October 2017 (Section 21d LuftVO). This can be obtained from a post recognised by the Federal Aviation Administration (LBA) after a successful theoretical examination. A list of these posts can be found on the LBA's website.
