Information – Unmanned aircraft
In accordance with Article 8 of the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago Convention) no unmanned aircraft can fly over the territory of the Republic of Serbia without a special authorization or contrary to the requirements stated within that authorization.
In accordance with Article 23, paragraph 2 of the Air Transport Law ("RS Official Gazette", Nos. 73/10, 57/11, 93/12, 45/15 and 66/15 - the other Law), flying of foreign guided and unguided flying objects within the airspace of the Republic of Serbia without the permission of the Ministry of Defence is considered a violation of the airspace of the Republic of Serbia.
Unmanned aircraft can be used for economic, scientific, educational, sporting and other purposes so as not to endanger the safety of air traffic. For any damage arising from the use of unmanned aircraft, the person using the unmanned aircraft shall be deemed responsible.
With the enactment of the appropriate secondary regulation, the use of unmanned aircraft is to be regulated. Pursuant to the powers arising from the Law, the Directorate has prepared the proposal rulebook on unmanned aircraft that had already been opened for a public debate; now the Directorate has put under scrutiny all received suggestions, remarks and comments of which only the reasonable ones will be incorporated into the final version. The rulebook is soon to be enacted.
Upon the publication of the regulation in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia, the document will be available on the website of the Directorate, under "Regulations".
Pending the enactment, we kindly invite all interested parties to directly contact the Directorate in case of any issues that they might have regarding the safe operation of unmanned aircraft.
