In this video, I'm going over the proposal for the new EU drone laws introduced from summer 2020. The video is a basic instruction that will cover the open category, the specific category, and the certified category, as well as what the new EU drone laws mean for you as a pilot in the EU.

I hope so, in some areas it will be easier for the smaller drones. Right now it's not allowed to fly in urban areas without a certificate, that will change going forward it seems.

In my case, the UK. Not sure if it's still Europe though...

Nice and clear, Henrik.

One thing I'm wondering about is when you're located out of Europe and you want to fly in a European state (on holiday). Can you do the online exam ? What when you're drone (Mavic 2) weights just over 900 g?

Anybody insight in those ?

I would expect you will be able to take the test regardless of where you are from, but it's too early to say.

It's a real bummer with the Mavic 2 series that it's slightly about 900g, but I hope they will make an exception.

Do the weights in the new rules refer to TOW or MTOW? As far as I can understand, it's MTOW, which would mean the Mini is no longer under 250g and no Mavic Pro could ever be under 900g. Or am I misunderstanding?

You're aware that the UK is leaving the EU, not Europe, right?
