I belong to the open category when my drone:

  • bears one of the class identification labels 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4; or
  • is privately built and its weight is less than 25 kg; or
  • it is purchased before 1 January 2023, with no class identification label as above;
  • will not be operated directly over people, unless it bears a class identification label or is lighter than 250 g. (Please refer to subcategories of operations: A1, A2 and A3 to find out where you can fly with your drone);
  • will be maintained in visual line of sight (VLOS) or the remote pilot will be assisted by a UA observer;
  • is flown at a height of no more than 120 metres;
  • will not carry any dangerous goods and will not drop any material.
