Drone Regulations What you Need to Know

Drone Regulations: What You Need to Know (UPDATED)

Drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) have become a growing equipment trend in aerial photography and film. The possibilities of shooting with drones are endless and hold the promise of new creative options, real cost savings and possibly even safer sets.  But before you go out and buy or hire the most expensive drone you can afford, you need to know the laws that come with commercial drone use.

The laws that regulate commercial use of drones vary from country to country.  Some countries require permits and have very strict regulations about drone use while others are more open.  Check out our overview of country regulations on drones:

North America

Canada

The Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs) require unmanned air vehicle (UAV) operators to apply for a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC).

When flying a UAV (non-recreational drone) in Canada, you must:

  • follow the rules in the Canadian Aviation Regulations:
  • section 602.41 – Unmanned air vehicles
  • respect the Criminal Code, your provincial Trespass Act, as well as all applicable municipal, provincial, and territorial laws that apply

For more information visit Transport Canada.

Mexico

Basic drone laws:

  • All drone flights must be operated in daylight only
  • There are no laws on operating drones weighing under 2kg other than they cannot be used at night
  • A permit is required for operation of drones weighing between 2kg and 25kg
  • A permit and pilot license are required for operation of drones weighing over 25kg
  • Despite the lack of Mexican drone laws you should still be careful when operating a done in Mexico. Try to maintain visual contact with your drone at all times and avoid flying over large crowds or near airports.

For more information visit the Federal Aviation Administration.

South America

Brazil

Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC) approved the Brazilian Regulation of Special Civil Aviation, which regulates the civil operation of remotely piloted aircraft, drones.

  • drones cannot be used at a distance of less than 30 horizontal meters (approximately 100 feet) of people without their consent, except in cases of public security or civil defense operations.
  • drones weighing more than 150 kilograms (about 330 pounds) must undergo a certification process similar to that existing for manned aircraft and must be registered in the Registro Aeronáutico Brasileiro.  Pilots must be over 18 years of age and must have a medical-aeronautical certificate, drone license, and authorization/operator’s license.
  • drones weighing between 25 kilos (about 55 pounds) and 150 kilos must be in conformity with technical requirements prescribed for manufacturers. Operators must be at least 18 years old and have a medical-aeronautical certificate, drone license, and operator’s license.
  • drones weighing between 250 grams (about 0.5 pounds) and 25 kilos need only be registered with the ANAC if operated up to 120 meters (about 394 feet)  above the ground. For equipment weighing under 250 grams there are no requirements in the Regulation.

For more information visit Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil.

Europe

Germany

Operation of the following drones and model aircraft requires an authorization to fly granted by the relevant state aviation authority and usually valid for two years:

  • drones or model aircraft weighing more than five kilograms;
  • rocket-powered drones and model aircrafts whose propellant mass exceeds 20 grams;
  • drones and model aircraft with a combustion engine, if they are flown within 1.5 kilometers of a residential area;
  • drones and model aircraft of all kinds if they are flown within 1.5 kilometers of an airport (flight at airports requires an additional clearance from German Aviation Control); and
  • drones and model aircraft of all kinds if flown at “night,” defined by the EU Implementing Regulation as the hours “between the end of evening civil twilight and the beginning of morning civil twilight.”

Drones and model aircrafts cannot be operated:

  • within 100 meters of or above people and public gatherings, the scene of an accident, disaster zones, other sites of operation of police or other organizations with security-related duties, and military drill sites;
  • within 100 meters of or above correctional facilities, military complexes, industrial complexes, power plants, and power generation and distribution facilities;
  • within 100 meters of or above the property of federal or state governments, diplomatic or consular missions, international organizations, and law enforcement and security agencies;
  • within 100 meters of or above federal highways, federal waterways, and railway systems;
  • above nature reserves;
  • above 100 meters;
  • above residential property if the drone or model aircraft weighs more than 0.25 kilograms or if it is able to receive, transmit, or record optical, acoustic, or radio signals;
  • in controlled airspace;
  • within 100 meters of or above hospitals.

The aviation authority may grant an exception to the general prohibitions in justified cases.

Norway

Use of drones is regulated by Luftfartstilsynet Civil Aviation Authority Norway.  There are three operator categories, based on weight and flight.

RO1
RO 1 operators must notify the CAA Norway before starting up any new undertaking. Such notification shall contain information about the undertaking’s name, address and contact information, as well as information about the type of aircraft that will be used.

An RO 1 undertaking is an undertaking in which aircraft

  • with an MTOM of up to 2.5 kg and
  • a maximum speed of 60 knots
  • will be operated exclusively within VLOS during daylight hours and subject to fixed safety distances

RO2

RO 2 operators must obtain a license from the CAA Norway before starting up an undertaking. The application must be accompanied by a risk analysis and an operations manual.

An RO 2 undertaking is an undertaking in which aircraft

  • with an MTOM of up to 25 kg and
  • a maximum speed of 80 knots
  • will be used for VLOS or EVLOS operations during daylight hours and subject to fixed safety distances

RO3

RO 3 operators must obtain a license from the CAA Norway before starting up an undertaking. The application must be accompanied by a risk analysis and an operations manual.

An RO 3 undertaking is an undertaking in which the aircraft

  • have an MTOM of 25 kg or more, or
  • a maximum speed of 80 knots, or
  • is operated by a turbine engine, or
  • will be used for BLOS operations at altitudes of more than 120 metres, or
  • will operate in controlled airspace at altitudes of more than 120 metres, or
  • will operate over or in the vicinity of crowds of people other than in the cases mentioned in Section 51 third paragraph.

For more information visit Luftfartstilsynet Civil Aviation Authority Norway.

Switzerland

For the operation of drones and model aircraft with a weight of more than 30 kilograms a permit has to be obtained from the FOCA. In each individual case the FOCA specifies the applicable requirements and operating conditions. The criteria for the operation of drones and model aircraft with a weight of up to 30 kilograms are specified in the DETEC Ordinance on Special Categories of Aircraft.

  • If an operator wants to incorporate auxiliary devices such as binoculars or video goggles in order to extend the natural visual range, a permit has to be obtained from the FOCA (Licensing procedure).
  • Without exception, the operation of drones and model aircraft is strictly prohibited within game reserves and bird sanctuaries.
  • The recording of aerial images is permitted as long as the operator duly observes the regulations governing the protection of military installations. The operator must also observe the principle of protection of privacy and the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act.
  • In principle, drones may not be operated above, or within a radius of 100 metres from, gatherings of people (Further information and licensing procedure).
  • Anyone who operates a drone or model aircraft with a weight of more than 500 grams is required to take out liability insurance cover in the amount of at least 1 million Swiss francs to cover any damages that may be caused.
  • Restrictions apply with respect to the operation of drones and model aircraft in the vicinity of airfields and airports. For example, it is prohibited to operate such devices at a distance of less than 5 kilometres from runways.
  • Cantonal and municipal authorities may impose additional restrictions on the use of unmanned aircraft (Example of the Canton of Geneva).
  • As before, a permit does not have to be obtained from the FOCA for public air shows at which exclusively model aircraft and drones are on show.

For more information visit the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA).

United Kingdom

Regulations are contained within the Air Navigation Order 2016 (ANO 2016) and there are specific steps that must be taken if a drone is being flown for commercial operations.

  • You must have a Permission issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) before you conduct any commercial operations with your drone.
  • Applications should be made on the standard form SRG 1320 and information should also be supplied about the scope of the operation and where and when it will take place. In the majority of cases, only the ‘standard’ CAA permission is granted and this favours aircraft weighing no more than 7kg (15 lbs). Any aircraft weighing more than 20kg (44 lbs) are subject to a more involved process and are more difficult to approve. How to apply for a Permission.

Further Guidance on drone operations within UK airspace can be found at the UK guidance document CAP 722.

Oceania

Australia

Drones under 2kg need to notify CASA at least five business days before their first commercial flight and agree to operate by the standard operating conditions and the guidance in advisory circular (AC) 101-10.

Under the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) weighing 2kg or less must fly:

  • less than 400 feet (121m) in a controlled airspace (generally meaning any populated area)
  • only in good weather conditions; not into a cloud or at night.
  • more than 10m horizontally and 30 feet (9 metres) vertically of a person (except people
  • operating the drone) or boat or building
  • at a height far enough over a large group of people that if the drone failed or any of its components fall, they will not land on people
  • clear of prohibited or restricted areas (such as an aerodrome or restricted military areas)

If you want to fly a drone commercially in Australia weighing more than 2kg, then you will need to obtain a remote pilot license (RePL), and an RPA operator’s certificate (ReOC).

For detailed information or for certification, visit the Civil Aviation Safety Authority website.

New Zealand

The Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand (CAA) oversees the use of drones in New Zealand:

  • RPAS weighing between 15 and 25 kg must be constructed or inspected, approved and operated under the authority of a person or association approved for this purpose by the Director of Civil Aviation.
  • For RPAS over 25kg you must submit an ‘exposition’ showing that you have identified hazards and risks of your operation, and will always mitigate those risks. Each application will be considered on its merit.
  • An operator must not use airspace above people unless they have the consent of people below the flight.
  • An operator must not use airspace above an area of property unless prior consent has been obtained from any persons occupying that property or the property owner.

You can apply to the CAA to work though different options with an operator and/or to relax or remove one or both of the consent requirements altogether.

For more information visit the Civil Aviation Authority of New Zealand.

Asia

Hong Kong

The Civil Aviation Department (CAD) is responsible for processing applications for non-recreational operations of drones within Hong Kong.

Cannes Film Festival

68th Cannes Film Festival: The Good, The Great and The Just Plain Hilarious

The 68th Cannes Film Festival did not disappoint! The most glamorous and prestigious film festival came to a close on Sunday May 24th with a few of surprises, red carpet scandals and of course astounding films. Here are my favorite highlights from the always unforgettable festival:

Top Awards

The highest prize, the Palme d’Or, went to French filmmaker Jacques Audiard for “Dheepan,” a crime drama about a Sri Lankan Tamil warrior who flees to France. This was a surprising choice for many as a judging panel led by U.S. filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen decided which film would take home the coveted award.

The silver Grand Prix award went to Hungarian film director Laszlo Nemes for his Holocaust drama “Son of Saul.” And the award considered the third prize of the film festival, the Prix Du Jury, was won by Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos for his dark romantic comedy “The Lobster.”

Films That Made an Impact

  • Todd Haynes’ movie “Carol” about two American women in love during the 1950s was a huge hit with critics and there is already Academy Award buzz for next year’s Oscars.
  • “Mad Max: Fury Road” which is coming out 30 years after the last “Mad Max” film is a thrilling, jaw-dropping action film that had the audience wanting more.
  • Ethiopia’s first ever entry into the Cannes competition, “Lamb,” by director Yared Zeleke told the story of a young boy seeking enterprising ways to save his fleecy friend.

Did That Really Happen?

Reportedly several women had been turned away from the movie “Carol” for wearing flat shoes instead of high heels. As you can imagine social media had a field day with this one!

During the opening credits of “Inside Out” the notorious overzealous crowd booed Disney and cheered Pixar with one critic even storming out of a screening shouting “F**k you and your slow movie!”

One poor viewer had the audacity to sneeze during a slower paced film and was met by an immediate wall of “shhhhhh.”
