According to the EU UAS Regulation, States ‘may’ issue national regulations for allowing for model aircraft operations. Can the ‘national’ Regulation be in contraposition with the ‘European’ Regulation?
The regulator included in the Regulation the option for the States to issue the operational authorisation to model aircraft clubs or associations on the basis of either national rules or on procedures established by the club or association, defining the purpose of such procedures.
Other than this, States cannot develop national regulations related to the safety of flights. In case of security, privacy or environmental risk, then the Member States may define additional requirements.
