New rules for drone flying in Iceland and rest of Europe

At the turn of the year 2020/2021, new EU rules on unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) came into force within the EU member states. Unlike the current Icelandic regulation (990/2017) where only drones used for commercial purposes need to be registered, drone operators will have to register according to the new regulations and certain requirements will be made for the training of remote pilots. The new EU rules have not been implemented in the Icelandic legislation yet.
