Do I Need To Register To Fly My Drone In Ireland?
This a very common question and one that causes lots of confusion.
Under the current EASA regulations, you must register as a drone operator if your drone is over 250g or has a camera. Many people discard the end of the sentence but basically if your drone has a camera, and is not a toy, you do have to register as an operator.
This does not include toy drones.
You no longer register the drone; you register as an operator of the drone.
Some popular examples of drones that you do have to register as an operator for include
- DJI Mini and Mini 2
- DJI Mini 3 Pro
- DJI Air / Air 2S
- DJI Mavic Series – Mavic Pro / Pro 2 / Zoom / Mavic 3
- DJI FPV and Avata
