The following regulations apply to drone use in Germany. Please inform yourself of the local regulations in any other country where you plan to fly a drone (or check our Dutch/Spanish articles).

  1. Please make sure that the plaque with the Grover name and address is attached to the drone when flying outside of airfields.

  2. The maximum altitude is 100 m, but you can receive an exemption from the national aviation authorities (“Die Landesluftfahrtbehörden”).

  3. Drones must always remain in sight.

  4. Drones must avoid interference with manned aircraft.

  5. Hazardous flying is forbidden and includes the operation of drones in areas such as areas of police or rescue worker activity, crowds, main traffic routes, arrival and departure areas of airfields, nature reserves, industrial facilities, constitutional bodies, federal and state authorities. Drones weighing more than 0.25 kg or of any weight that are also capable of receiving, transmitting, or recording optical, acoustic, or radio signals are prohibited from operation on residential property. Please note that failure to comply with these regulations will result in the loss of your insurance coverage. More information about aviation authorities and the detailed specifications of these regulations can be found in the new drone ordinance (Die neue Drohnenverordnung) and brief information on the use of unmanned aerial systems (Kurzinformation über die Nutzung von unbemannten Luftfahrtsystemen).

  6. Please note that you must register DJI drones with the DJI App in order to use all capabilities required within the drone regulations, valid since October 2017.
