The EMFU has, together with a number of national associations, been actively involved in helping to accommodate the concerns of model aircraft pilots in the new EU legislation, and many of our proposals were incorporated in the final text of the legislation. The EMFU is now assisting national associations with the implementation and application of the new EU rules within each Member State.
The links below provide an overview of the state of play of implementation of the new EU rules for a number of countries, including information on rules for visiting pilots. The information is provided by the EMFU member associations of each country. Please contact us through the Contact Form if you have any comments on this section. We would also very much welcome information on the implementation of the EU rules in countries that are not EMFU members. Visiting pilots may also want to check our general information for visiting pilots.
For ease of reference, we’re also composing and regularly updating a table with information on registration and training/certification in each of the EMFU member countries. This table, which is regularly updated, can be found here (PDF File).
