Can we integrate the processes for a permission under Part-SERA and with high-risk authorisation (HRA) under Part-ARO?
Yes, it is possible, but this decision belongs to the competent authority. Competent authorities may, for example, consider the following option:
- for flights over the congested areas of cities, towns or settlements or over an open-air assembly of persons, issuing only HRA. If such flights are to be operated below 300m, the HRA may integrate the permission under Part-SERA, without a separate procedure; and
- for flights elsewhere and not over an open-air assembly of persons,
- below 150 m, issuing permission under Part-SERA only. This permission may integrate potential risks under Part-SPO;
- above 150 m, requiring neither HRA nor permission.
