This is a media curation page for the PIRatE Lab's AARR Program.  We are developing practical, low cost programs to monitor resources in our coastal zone (the land near the ocean and the ocean near the land) with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs aka "drones") overhead and subtidal Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) .  Enjoy!!

The rules on drone use in Luxembourg | #Europe #Laws #Drones

The rules on drone use in Luxembourg | #Europe #Laws #Drones | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it

The disruption caused by drones at London's Gatwick Airport in late December, and most recently on Tuesday evening at Heathrow Airport, has prompted the British government to tighten regulations governing the use of such devices, but what are the rules in Luxembourg?

The Civil Aviation Authority in Luxembourg recently published a brochure entitled "Unmanned Aircraft", aiming to inform the public about what is permitted, and indeed not permitted regarding the use of drones in the country.

First and foremost, drones cannot be used in the vicinity of airports and aerodromes.

Luxembourg rules are quite stringent compared to some other countries, and drones for public use are prohibited from flying over people, animals, motorways, railways, vehicles, and of course manned aircraft.

The Grand Duchy is the only country in the Greater Region where the use of dashcams in vehicles is not permitted and therefore the same rules regarding surveillance where drones are concerned, also applies.

Both the take-off and landing of drones must take place in a safe open area and fly at least five metres above the ground and must not exceed 50 metres.

Drones can only fly between sunrise and sunset in Luxembourg.

Luxembourg had to enforce stricter regulations after the disruption caused by drones in London's Gatwick Airport

No cool first-person-view flying unless you plan the flight like a real pilot
Jason Millers insight:
We know rules for flying vary between countries, but you don't see Americans talking much about the actual rules in other countries.  Here's an article that gives us a glimpse of how the rules might change in the European Union.  An interesting class project (though maybe not appropriate for ESRM 370) would be to compare and contrast the American rules for operating UAS commercially and as a hobbyist to those in Europe.
