The use of drones is becoming more and more prevalent in Ireland and prospective operators should be aware of their responsibilities to ensure safety. Drones and model aircraft are considered as unmanned aircraft which are remotely piloted/controlled. These are often used recreationally. Operators of such aircraft must familiarise themselves with the rules regarding these aircraft, to ensure they don’t endanger other airspace users or people.

The Small Unmanned Aircraft and Rockets Order applies to the majority of model aircraft/drones used in Ireland.

Restrictions apply to where drones/model aircraft may be flown. They are often determined by the mass (weight) of the drone. This weight is the total weight of the aircraft as it commences its flight, less any fuel. See the Guidance Material for more detailed information.
