Request permission to fly drone in controlled airspace
Use Dronerequest – for flight safety!
When you use Dronerequest to notify of your drone flight, you contribute to increased flight safety. Your drone flight area will be visible as a flight hazard to pilots onboard the Swedish police helicopters, Search- and rescue helicopters and all ambulance helicopters based in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.
Your drone flight is also visible in the major navigation apps for general aviation. Pilots will not monitor an iPad with such information throughout the entire flight but might check in every now and then to brief themselves of potential hazards along the route and your area of drone flight will show up there.
With this in mind, it is very valuable if you notify of your drone flight even if it takes place outside of Air Traffic Services’ (Control tower’s) hours of operation. It is also important that you stick to (or amend) the flight times you submitted through Dronerequest.
