Answer

The minimum age for remote pilots of drones in the ‘open’ and ’specific’ categories is 16 years old, however, check with your local National Aviation Authority, as they can lower the minimum age requirement.

However, there is no minimum age for flying a drone with a CE class 0 mark under subcategory A1.

Regulatory reference: Article 9 EU regulation 2019/947.
