Follow all regulations on photography in public and private places

Keep your aircraft away from other UAVs

Pilots must be 18 years of age

Check the local aviation authority's website and review all necessary rule and regulations before flying

Operators must keep aircraft within their line of sight while flying

Please Note

  • The owners of Drones (weighing more than 250 g or flying faster than 50 km/h) must be registered with the Danish Transport, Construction and Housing Authority before the drone is operated.
  • The aircraft must be marked with the owner’s name, telephone number and registration number assigned by the Danish Transport, Construction and Housing Authority.
  • Drone flights in busy areas may only be conducted for professional purposes and shall be operated in such a way that the lives and properties of other persons are not exposed to danger or other unnecessary inconveniences. A busy area is an area used for habitation, commercial or recreational purposes, including but not limited to sports facilities, resort areas, camping sites, and industrial and harbor areas.
