subcategory A3 (under 25kg)

Drones under 25kg (subcategory A3)

Markings: My drone must bear a CE marking and the C2, C3 or C4 class identification label. If I fly a drone without a class identification label, the transitional category rules apply to me.

Registration: I must register as the operator of the drone on the online drone platform UAS.gate and label the drone with the UAS operator number. Registration is free of charge.

Certificate: If I want to fly in this drone category, I have to obtain the A1/A3 certificate. To do this, I complete a self-study training course and an exam (multiple choice, 40 questions) on the online drone portal UAS.gate. After passing the exam, the certificate will be issued. The training and exam are free of charge.
