For control zones at airports, DFS has issued a general clearance for the ascent of model aircraft and UAS up to a height of 50 metres above ground or water.
However, this general clearance only applies if you observe the following DFS requirements when flying UAS and model aircraft:
- The ascent of model aircraft and UAS is only permitted in visual weather conditions (cloud base 1,500 ft, visibility at least 5 km),
- not in formation or autonomously,
- not close to emergency operation areas.
