Swedish Drone Regulations – Updated as of 6/5/2015
The government of Sweden responded to our request for information on the latest Swedish drone regulations, which can be read in detail here.
Here is a summary of key points:
- UAVs must be flown during daylight hours.
- UAVs must be flown within line of sight.
- An “pilot in charge” must be designated before each flight.
- The “pilot in charge” must be fully familiar with the functioning of the AUV being flown
- If a flight is being flown in automatic-mode, a manual override must be possible.
- Logs of all flights must be maintained by the pilot. The log must include, at minimum, the date, name of the “pilot in charge”, the individual aircraft, take-off and landing areas, flight time, total flight time, type of activity and potential deviations.
We will keep this updated as Swedish drone regulations evolve over time.
