Fly a drone with LFVs drone chart

If you are going to fly a drone, an unmanned aircraft, you must know the rules and where it’s permitted to fly. As a drone pilot, you must comply with aviation laws and regulations. The laws and permits required depend on what the drone is going to be used for and where you’ll be flying.

To fly drones in airspace

If you fly a drone, you must follow the rules that apply to flight - see the website of the drone regulations authority, the Swedish Transport Agency.

Flying near airports

The operation of drones in airspace near an airport requires special permission from air traffic control, or equivalent, on a case-by-case basis. In some cases, a two-way radio link or equivalent may be required to obtain such permission. To contact local air traffic control, email, for a reply with instructions.

Airports where LFV provides air traffic control: Arlanda, Bromma, Hagshult, Halmstad, Jokkmokk, Karlsborg, Kiruna, Landvetter, Linköping-Malmen, Luleå, Ronneby, Sturup, Såtenäs, Umeå, Uppsala, Vidsel, Visby, Åre-Östersund.

Restricted areas where flying is prohibited

There are also restricted areas in Sweden where drone use is prohibited, such as over prisons, nuclear power plants and national parks. Whether you can fly in a restricted area, R area, and who grants permission to fly there depends on the area in question. Some R areas are always active, which means that it’s always a no fly zone. In other areas, it depends on whether any activity may be disturbed.

About LFVs drone chart

LFVs drone chart is a custom-made map for remote pilots of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), also known as Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles (UAV), Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) and drones. One of the most frequently asked questions about drones is; where can I fly a drone? The purpose of the map is to help remote operators determine where they can fly without disrupting regular air traffic. The chart is a simple interactive map that reflects AIP (Aeronautical Information Publication) data.

The drone chart works in newer versions of the most common browsers and is adapted to work on both a computer desktop and mobile devices. If the map doesn't seem to work as expected, try upgrading your browser to a newer version or try a different browser.

The chart describes the location of airports, the extent of their airspace (CTR, TIZ and ATZ) and relevant restriction areas, danger areas, zones surrounding major airports and major heliports.
