Geographical zones

The use of airspace by unmanned aircraft systems or drones is generally free in Germany. This only applies as long as the use of airspace is not restricted due to the Air Traffic Act or another regulation.

Via the fields shown, you can reach detailed information on geographical zones according to Section 21h (3) of LuftVO and on restricted areas (ED-R) as well as instructions on how to use dipul's Web Map Service (WMS), which allows geodata to be exchanged and subsequently visualized via a standardized interface. The map tool contains the interactive representation of the geographical zones, weather forecast and a volume planner (useful for the specific category).
