  2. Certification and Licensing: The DGAC handles the certification of drones and the licensing of drone operators, ensuring they meet the required safety and operational standards.
  3. Operational Oversight: The DSAC oversees the enforcement of these regulations, conducting inspections and ensuring compliance with safety standards.
  4. Safety and Security: Both organizations work together to ensure that drone operations do not compromise the safety and security of civil aviation, integrating drones safely into the national airspace.

Summary of Drone Regulations in France

The French drone regulations, aligned with European standards, categorize drone operations based on risk levels: 

  1. Open Category: Low-risk operations (e.g., recreational flights within visual line of sight).
  2. Specific Category: Moderate-risk operations requiring standard scenarios or specific authorizations.
  3. Certified Category: High-risk operations needing certification.

Drone operators must comply with national regulations for security and airspace use. Training and certification are essential for all categories.
