More information for drone pilots in Georgia
Georgia has an “open category” for which no permit is required. The following conditions must be met:
The maximum take-off mass is 25 kilograms, the maximum operating altitude is 400 feet (122 meters).
The maximum allowed flight speed is 54 km / h. The operation of drones is permitted from the age of 14 years as long as an adult is there to monitor the minor.
In Georgia, drones may only be operated within line of sight. No other aids may be used.
Only drones that have not been modified may be used.
As far as I know, there is no requirement in Georgia to have drone insurance. However, we always recommend taking out special insurance.
Restrictions and flight bans
A safety distance of 6 kilometers must be maintained around airports. A minimum distance of 50 meters must be kept from groups of people, public roads, rails and buildings.
The operation of drones is prohibited in populated areas, in parks, over playing fields and near power lines.
Good to know
Drones weighing 5 kg or more must be registered unless they are already registered in another country.
If you are planning flight maneuvers outside of the open category, you must apply for a permit. You can find more information in Georgian here.
