Off-Aerodrome Landing

The term off-aerodrome landing refers to any landing and take-off outside a designated aerodrome. Even when the aircraft has no contact with the ground, picking up or setting down persons or objects outside an aerodrome is also deemed to be an off-aerodrome landing. The Off-Aerodrome Landing Ordinance (OALO; SR 748. 132.3), introduced in 2014, regulates all matters relating to such activities, for example the requirements for authorisation of off-aerodrome landing and the environmental regulations that apply. The specific regulations applicable to individual flight categories must also be observed. This ordinance also regulates spatial planning and planning permission matters where off-aerodrome landing sites are frequently used or at sites where small infrastructures are to be built.
