French UAV regulations are evolving, as professionals we take care of all authorizations
Real UAV missions should only be led by confirmed professional as amateur pilots, even equipped with expensive drones, do not have the necessary skills and knowledge to fly in total security. The French DGAC (Direction Générale de l’Aviation Civile) has strengthen its regulations. Since the first of July 2018 all pilots flying drones in a professional setting must attend microlight planes (ULM) theorical exam and they also must attend UAV-specific training modules. Practical exams must be taken in order to prove the tele pilot’s ability to prepare and operate their UAV in normal as well as in abnormal flight conditions.
