New UAV regulations in place and active
The new UAV regulations are now active in Germany! For commerical and research flights things are more simple now for copters below 2kg. There is now a general allowance in place for the full federal region of Germany for UAVs below 2 kg (with the restricted regions as listed in the regulations). For copters with more weight a specific training certificate is needed and up from 5kg you need an allowance of the regional aeronautical authority.
