Applying for a permit for an aviation event

If you want to hold an aviation event, you must first apply for a permit from the relevant aviation authority.

If you are planning an aviation event, you will have to meet various requirements. These serve to ensure public safety and order. The competent aviation authority therefore checks whether the requirements for the event management, the participating pilots, the aircraft and the event site are met.

You do not have to have the event approved if only model aircraft and non-motorized air sports equipment that are not subject to registration and that cannot carry passengers are participating.

Process flow

The approval of the aviation event is carried out by the competent aviation authority.

After applying for approval, the documents you submit will be subject to a formal and professional review.

If necessary, the competent authority will independently request further documents about your event.

If all conditions are met, then after the exam you will be given permission to the aviation event. Otherwise, you will receive a rejection notice.
