Guidance for safe drone operations

Drone flights

Switzerland is becoming an important global centre of excellence for advancing the unmanned aircraft sector.

Skyguide is playing a vital role in ensuring drones can fly safely and securely. We are responsible for providing clearances for drone operations in the airspace in which Air Traffic Control (ATC) approval is required, including airspace around airports and regional aerodromes.

The “U-Space” concept provides the digital infrastructure, services and procedures to give drones access to airspace while ensuring the safety of other airspace users.

Our U-Space apps give drone operators a detailed overview of key restrictions and constraints on drone operations throughout the country and an automated flight authorisation request system for Skyguide approval (under some conditions).
