France Drone Laws


French drone regulations.

  • Only fly your aircraft during daylight and in good weather (not in clouds or fog).
  • Always keep your aircraft in sight, where you can see it with your own eyes – not only through an on-board camera, monitor or smartphone.
  • Don’t fly closer than 5 km from any airport, heliport, or aerodrome.
  • Don’t fly higher than 150 meters from above the ground.
  • Don’t fly in populated areas or near large groups of people, including sporting events, concerts, festivals, and firework shows.
  • Don’t fly within restricted airspace
