FAQ n.116553

What is an ‘assembly of people’?


An assembly of people is a crowd of people. It is not defined by a specific number of people, but is related to the possibility for an individual to move around in order to avoid the consequences of a drone which is out of control. If a group of people are so densely packed that their possibility to freely escape or move away from the drone is limited, then it is considered to be an assembly of people. 

Examples of assemblies of people are the people in: 

  • sport, cultural, religious or political events;
  • beaches or parks on a sunny day;
  • commercial streets during the opening hours of the shops; or
  • ski resorts/tracks/lanes.
