From the 21st December, drone registration is mandatory in accordance with the Small Unmanned Aircraft (Drones) and Rockets Order S.I. 563 of 2015. All drones over 1kg must be registered.
For those who have already registered, drone registration decals will be issued by post shortly.
Which drones/model aircraft must be registered?
Those of 1 kg or more and less than 25 kg, without fuel but including any articles or equipment installed in or attached to the aircraft and including cargo at the start of its flight, must be registered.
Unmanned aircraft of 25 kg or more, are subject to the Irish Aviation Authority (Nationality and Registration of Aircraft) Order, 2015, and must be registered in a similar manner to manned aircraft. Information regarding aircraft registration is available here.
Two Step Registration Process
In order to register your drone, you must first register with ASSET, the IAA's online terrain mapping system. Once done, you will be able to register your drone via the ASSET system.
