9 Essential\nTips for Traveling with a Drone in Ireland and How to Avoid Persecution<\/p>\n\n\n\n

Preparing\nto travel with a drone is a cultural journey itself as each government has its\nown regulation. The Small Unmanned Aircraft (Drones) and Rockets Order\nS.I. 563<\/a> of December 2015 has stated Ireland amongst one of the\nfirsts trailblazers.  <\/p>\n\n\n\n

The Federal\nAviation Administration evaluated that 7 million drones will be flying on our\nskies by 2020. The world is getting ready and, more and more decrees are being\nset up. Some nations, like Ethiopia or Morocco, even adopted the full ban. Despite\nbeing a pioneer in terms of order, Ireland stays true to itself and remains one\nof the most enjoyable places to fly your wigged camera.<\/p>\n\n\n\n

In\nIreland, as anywhere, things can quickly go wrong and being prepared is the key\nto a successful journey. Over in Ireland has gathered all the necessary\nknowledge to avoid persecution (at the time of writing) and 9 Tips to Travel\nwith your Drone. <\/p>\n\n\n\n

How to Avoid Prosecution\nin Ireland?<\/h1>\n\n\n\n

Whether it\nis for recreational or commercial use, rules appear to be the same (as below)\nin Ireland. <\/p>\n\n\n\n

You must register your drone online if its weight\nexceeds one kilo (2.2 pounds) but is under 25 kg (55.1 pounds), emptied tank (if\nflies with fuel) and equipment attached included. To do so, visit the Irish Aviation Authority<\/a> website and\nstart the process via the ASSET portal; a topographic mapping system that\nallows you to beware of every flying object in the sky, to locate your drone\nand shows the restricted and unauthorised areas. It will cost you \u20ac5 and will\ncover you for 2 years.<\/p>\n\n\n\n

Any drone flying higher than 15 metres (49.2 feet) is\nlegislatively required to get a certification as well. The weight does not\nmatter here. <\/p>\n\n\n\n

Anyone older than 16-year-old can fill up the online\nform. Younger than that, a legal guardian must take over. <\/p>\n\n\n\n

You can record as many unmanned aircraft as you want. <\/p>\n\n\n\n

The\nenrolment of all remote-controlled aircraft above 25 kilos (55 pounds) has to\nbe done directly at the IAA Office.<\/p>\n\n\n\n
