Flying in France

Recommended Posts

Hi There, I am taking a vacation to southern France, primarily spending time in the countryside,  43°59'27.019"N 5°33'22.808"E Chateau de Simiane-la-Rotone. I will be flying for fun only. I have my FAA 107 and my Standing SFOC (Canada). I am using the skyward maps for defining airspace in order to avoid restricted areas which are easy to find on skyward. Does anyone have any other experience with flying there and other safety issues? sid

Here's a link after a quick google search: http://www.mlvdrone.fr/rules-for-flying-recreational-drones/

There is a brief set of bullet points of what to expect on where you can and cannot fly. Two points I noticed - one is having insurance. The second is having permission for any property you end up photographing - even for recreational purposes. It looks like the laws regarding privacy are quite a bit different between USA/Canada and France.
