Drone regulations in Georgia

In this article, you will learn what rules to follow if you want to fly a drone in Georgia.

Georgia, as a partner of the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), has adopted the rules that have been introduced in many countries with the European drone regulation. This means that there is also a registration requirement in Georgia, flights are divided into three categories, and remote pilots can prove their knowledge through licenses.

However, we do not yet have information on whether registration and knowledge certificates from an EU country are also recognized in Georgia and vice versa. You should contact the appropriate aviation authority before traveling.

You can get an overview of the European rules here.

Registration as a drone operator in Georgia is possible via this link.

Restrictions and flight bans

Flight bans are displayed on this map.

Before the map was published, a safety distance of 6 kilometers applied around airports, and a minimum distance of 50 meters had to be maintained from public roads, railways and buildings. In populated areas, parks, over playing fields and near power lines, drone operation was prohibited. In the meantime, I would use the map as a guide when in doubt.

We have researched the drone rules for Georgia listed here to the best of our knowledge. We can not guarantee the accuracy of the information.

      HI chanuka did you fly your drone in georgia

    I just wanted to point out that there is now a website online for Georgia: https://uas.gov.ge/EN

    They are following the EU regulations. Registration is possible for private or commercial use. EU-Registration should be sufficient however. We are trying to get this clarified.

    To see restricted airspace there is also a website: https://airspace.gov.ge/EN#

    Both sites just went online and are only partially operational so far
