Drone Regulations in Switzerland (Drone Laws)

Drone regulations in Switzerland. Or are they drone laws or rules? Do you like aerial photography and want to take a cool shot of the Swiss Alps or cities such as Zurich or Lucerne. Well then you need to be aware that you may be close to a no fly zone or restricted airspace.

To make it easy for you, simply search “Drone Map Switzerland” and you will find a government website that allows you to see where you are supposed to take off or fly in to.

Laws about insurance and registration are subject to change, please do you research about it.

Other than that, these you are doing a great job if you:

– Have a liability insurance
– Don’t fly above or near crowds
– Always have visual contact
– Are aware of low flying helicopter, planes or jets
– Respect privacy


Other than that, enjoy and use common sense. And most importantly, take the best drone shots you have ever taken in your life! I mean the scenery is on point, so it’s up to you.

Viel Spass!

    On behalf of all users of Swiss airspace, I would like to commend you on the creation of this video. It seeks to inform without judgement and I encourage it to be shared with all drone users. One point you may like to note is that it is not correct that traditional aircraft are as unpredictable at low altitudes as you portray. In point of fact, there is a free service provided by SkyGuide (Swiss air control) which informs users of Swiss airspace of all major changes to Swiss airspace, including all air displays.
    See: https://www.skybriefing.com/portal/ section "Daily Airspace Bulletin Switzerland". 
    Additionally, all emergency service heliports are clearly marked on the Swiss air map.

    If the drone weighs under 500gram (mavic mini), can you fly it on quiet ski slopes without any permits?

    How high am I normally allowed to fly with a Mavic mini?

    Could you recommend a budget liability insurance for drones?
