*Classes C5 and C6 can be considered C3 class drones with additional requirements.
Ideally, you should know where you want to fly and how you want to use the drone before you buy a new device. Accordingly, choosing a suitable drone.
The introduction of UAV-classes is intended to simplify drone registration. The higher the class, the more complicated the procedure.
There will be a transition period until 01.01.2023 for already purchased and older devices. So they will be allowed to fly until New Year 2023. We will elaborate in part 2 of this blog series.
The class of your UAV also determines the operating category in which it may be flown.
What this means will be explained in Part 2: “The Operating Categories”.
This article is part of a series about innovations and changes due to the EU drone regulation. Among other things, we will explain how the new operating categories are divided, which requirements drones and pilots must meet on which deadlines, and what changes are taking place in the airspace for unmanned aircraft. We welcome feedback, additions, and suggestions in order to provide all readers with understandable and up-to-date information.
