Motorised aircraft; application for an external take-off permit or external landing permit

Aircraft taking off and landing outside the aerodromes authorised for them require external take-off and landing authorisations.

Description

External take-offs and landings are defined as take-offs and landings of aircraft

  • outside the airfields approved for this purpose
  • outside the designated runways of an aerodrome,
  • outside the operating hours of an aerodrome, or
  • within restricted operating hours for an aerodrome.

External take-offs and landings require permission from the aviation authority. The responsible aviation authority can issue these permits for take-offs and landings in Bavaria. There is no legal entitlement to the granting of permission.

Permission for an outlanding is not required if the location of the landing cannot be determined in advance due to the characteristics of the respective aircraft (e.g. gliders or balloons) or if the landing is necessary for reasons of safety or to provide assistance in the event of danger to life or limb of a person (e.g. rescue helicopter).

Regional supplement (editorially responsible: Government of Upper Bavaria)
In the period from June 1 to October 15, take-offs and landings for helicopter sightseeing flights in tourist areas (in the area of responsibility of the Air Office of Southern Bavaria) are generally not permitted.

Prerequisites

A permit may only be issued at the discretion of the Authority if, in particular

  • safe flight operations are guaranteed
  • dangers to the general public can be ruled out
  • adequate protection against aircraft noise is taken into account, and
  • a careful treatment of nature and landscape is ensured.

This public interest and the applicant's interest in carrying out the project (purpose of the flight) must be weighed against each other. Decisive factors include the intensity, the location and the date of the project.
