Italy drone laws are fairly standard. The general rules mostly apply for drone flying. These are:
- You may not fly your drone over 230 feet
- You may not fly your drone further than 490 feet horizontally or out of visual line of sight
- You may not carry dangerous goods on your drone
- You may not fly your drone over populated areas, gatherings, beaches, national parks, urban areas, infrastructures, railways, highways and industrial plants
- You must stay at least 8 km away from aerodromes
- You must only fly your drone during daylight
- Your drone must weigh under 25 kg
- You must keep your drone 50 m away from persons/property not under control of the drone operator
- You must carry third party insurance
If you are looking to fly commercially though all you need is:
Special permission if you’re drone weights more than 25 kg, otherwise standard rules apply.
Operators must attend a Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) training program. A pilots license that you may get through Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC).
