Free balloon; application for an external launching permit

A permit is required for the launch of one or more free balloons outside the launch sites approved for them.


Free balloons may only be launched outside the balloon launch sites approved for them if the responsible aviation authority has granted permission.

Furthermore, the owner of the land or other person entitled to it must have consented to the launch.

Permission for an external landing with a free balloon, on the other hand, is not required, since the place of landing of a free balloon cannot be determined in advance due to its characteristics.


The external launch site must be suitable for the project. This must be proven by an expert opinion.
