Tethered balloon and kite; application for permission to ascend.
A permit is required to launch tethered balloons with a tether longer than 30 meters and to launch kites and parasail kites with a tether longer than 100 meters.
For the granting of permission, the involvement of the responsible air traffic control authority or the Federal Office for Infrastructure, Environmental Protection and Services of the German Armed Forces may be required.
The ascent of children's balloons at a distance of less than 1.5 kilometers from the boundary of airfields is generally prohibited. Furthermore, the ascent of children's balloons is not subject to approval by the air traffic control offices, but as mass ascent and ascent of bundled children's balloons may require air traffic control clearance by Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH.
The application must be submitted well in advance of the scheduled date (approximately 4 weeks before the date).
Please select a location in "Localization" so that the address of the responsible authority can be filled in.
