No matter what your career is, the integration of drone technology is constantly growing. It offers endless opportunities and in this ebook you’ll get to know some of them.


At present, drones can be used to carry out aerial jobs, such as:

  • research and development activities;
  • aerial treatments, phytosanitary or others having to spread substances on the ground or the atmosphere, including product launches in fire fighting activities;
  • aerial surveys;
  • aerial observation and surveillance including filming and fire protection activities;
  • aerial advertising, radio and TV broadcasting;
  • Emergency operations, search and rescue;
  • and other types of special jobs not included in this list.

Until the definitive regulation is approved, the operations that can be performed are limited to uninhabited areas and non-controlled airspace.

This first temporary regulation allows the use of drones above uninhabited areas and for the moment it is not allowed to fly above cities or crowds of people outdoors, like city parks, beaches with people, football fields, etc. Therefore, drones can only be used to film movies  in non-urban areas. Demonstrations, parties or concerts can not be filmed by drone, unless they are held in totally enclosed areas (including the roof).

The totally enclosed spaces (an industrial or sports pavilion, a convention centre, a private home, etc.)  are not subject to AESA’s jurisdiction, since they are not part of the airspace. The owners of such spaces can decide whether they authorise the flight of the drone in their interior and in which conditions. A football stadium is not considered an enclosed space, unless its roof covers the whole surface, without openings. 

The new regulation allows <25 kg aircraft to film outdoors, but it must be done in daylight and in good weather and visual conditions, in areas without buildings agglomerations in cities, villages or inhabited places or crowds of people outdoors, in non-controlled airspace, within the pilot’s visual range,  at a distance under 500 m., and a height above ground no greater than 400 feet (that is, at least 120 m. above the ground).

To obtain the accreditation as drone operator to carry out this type of jobs, the regime laid down dictates previous communication and affidavit, so a permit or authorisation is not required, only an acknowledgement of receipt once the affidavit together with the documentation required has been submitted to AESA’s Registry. The acknowledgement of receipt will accredit you as drone operator.

Regardless of the drone operator accreditation, to make photographs or to film with any type of aircraft, manned or unmanned, you need to comply with the Government Presidency order of March 14, 1957.

If you want to operate in Restricted Areas to Photographic Flight (RVF) you will need to contact the Air Force Chief of Staff (Division for Operation /Air space section, FAX: 915 034 496) that will inform the operator about it. In the other cases (Areas Not Restricted to Photographic Flights (NRVF) it is not necessary to consult the Air Force Chief of Staff.

All drone pilots, regardless of the aircraft size, need to meet the following requirements:

First, they need to attest that they have the theoretical knowledge to obtain a pilot license, which can be done in three ways:

  • to have or have had (in the last 5 years) a pilot license (any license, including glider, ballonon or aultralight aircraft),
  • or to prove that they have the theoretical knowledge to obtain it (by means of a theoretical knowledge certificate issued by an AESA’s approved training organisation, ATO, or, if that knowledge corresponds to an ultralight aircraft license, by means of an individual certificate marked as FIT after doing the corresponding official exam of theoretical knowledge),
  • or if the maximum takeoff weight is not higher than 25 Kg by means of a basic or advanced certificate issued by an approved training organisation (ATO) after passing a course.
  • Also, is they don’t have a pilot license, they must prove that they are older than 18 years old. 

Secondly, they must submit a medical certificate, LAPL class (for aircraft up to 25 Kg) or Class 2 (for aircraft over 25 Kg). 

Finally, they must attest that they have the adequate knowledge on the aircraft they are going to fly and the flying procedures, by means of a document that can be issued by the operator, by the aircraft’s manufacturer or an authorised organisation or approved training organisation.

All drones, without exception, must have fixed in its structure an identification plate including, in a readable and visible manner, the aircraft identification, by means of the specific designation, serial number, name of the operating company and its contact details. 

Also, the aircraft over 25kg at takeoff must be registered in AESA’s Aircraft Registry and have an Airworthiness Certificate.   Lighter aircraft do not need to meet this requirement.
