Apply for registration in the air sports equipment directory for approval-free ultralight sports equipment


The air sports equipment directory stores the data of all domestically approved ultralight aircraft, ultralight helicopters and helicopters. Only registered ultralight flying equipment (UL) will receive a license plate.

Air sports equipment without registration requirements usually does not require a number plate and therefore does not receive an entry in the air sports equipment register. If you still want a license plate for your aerial sports equipment, you must apply for registration in the Air Sports Equipment Register.

Air sports equipment without registration requirements are, for example:

  • Single- or two-seater air sports equipment with a maximum permissible mass of up to 120 kg, including harness and rescue equipment
  • Unmanned Aeronautical Systems (UAVs)
    • Note: This will be not necessary in the future as part of the implementation of the European Regulation on the Regulation of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAVs). Then UAVs do not only have to be labelled as before, but are also subject to authorisation and must be registered in a database.

In order to receive an entry or a flag for your UL, you must either have a

  • German type examination or
  • proof of an EU type-approval.

The air sports associations commissioned by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure are responsible for the entry of ultralight aircraft and ultralight helicopters in the air sports equipment list. These are the

  • German Aero Club e.V. and
  • the German Ultralight Flying Association

Personal data such as the name and address of the owner as well as technical data such as the

  • type and type of aircraft and cell number,
  • nationality and registration mark of the aircraft, and
  • the number of the sheet of the aircraft register.

As soon as the stored data changes, you must inform the Federal Aviation Office or the commissioned air sports association with which your aerial sports equipment is registered. Under special circumstances, German authorities may access your data. This applies to

  • administrative measures in the field of air transport,
  • to prosecute infringements of air traffic rules or
  • to prosecute criminal offences or to prevent threats to public safety.

The contracted air sports associations are responsible for air sports equipment such as ultralight aircraft and ultralight helicopters, here the German Aero Club or the German Ultralight Flying Association. The Federal Aviation Administration is responsible for all other aircraft, such as motor aircraft, gliders, motor gliders or helicopters.

The entry or modification of their data in the airport equipment directory must be requested in writing by post or e-mail.

  • Print the application form on the website of your preferred air sports federation and complete it in full.
  • Send the application form with the required documents either
    • by post or
    • by e-mail to the address to your air sports association.
  • If your application is complete, you will receive a registration certificate by post.
  • Proof German sample examination or
  • Proof of EU type-approval
  • Copy of identity card (front and back) or passport and registration certificate
  • Proof of acquisition of ownership of the UL
  • In case of registration on the basis of a German type examination:
    • Proof of the sample test (device identification sheet)
    • Proof of the piece inspection of the complete UL (all components in combination, available from the manufacturer or contracted dealer)
  • For registration on the basis of the EU type-approval
    • Fully completed certificate stamped and signed by the manufacturer or distributor, such as the "Fiche D' Identification" for air sports equipment approved in France
  • Registration in the list of sports equipment: EUR 80,00
  • Change of registration: EUR 25,00
