Register as a UAS operator via

From 31 December 2020, new European rules apply to the operation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems - UAS (also known as drone or "unmanned aerial vehicle - UAV").

These rules provide for 3 categories depending on the operational risk:

  • the "OPEN" category when the risk is low;
  • the "SPECIFIC" category when the risk is medium;
  • the "CERTIFIED" category when the risk is very high.

You must register as an operator with the Directorate of Civil Aviation (Direction de l'Aviation Civile - DAC), if you wish to operate UAVs in the "OPEN" or "SPECIFIC" categories and if you are:

  • a natural person, aged at least 16 years and resident in Luxembourg; or
  • a legal person whose principal place of business is in Luxembourg; or
  • a national administration.

The registration request is free of charge and can be made online via the platform.
