International Drone Laws

As the UAV industry is booming with increasing number of applications worldwide, increasing numbers of drone pilots are entering the commercial side of this area especially for the sheer fascination as well as the high earnings potential. 

While the small hobby drones are freely allowed in most places,  the commercial UAV's are strictly regulated, for example by the TSA Drone Rules or the California Drone Laws in the USA.  At present, the use of commercial drones are not regulated internationally and most countries have their own rules which must be followed and these are strictly enforced to the point of loosing the drone, obtaining fines and even imprisonment, especially for drone near airport situations.

It is therefore very important to have a good appreciation of the current drone laws. We have obtained the most up-to-date listing which, however, is subject to ongoing revisions and change.
