Hello how do I get a drone license for my dji mavic foe my vacation in Israel
Appreciate for your sharing. I will be going to a Holy Land (Israel) tour with my church group. I am thinking of bringing along a DJI Spark (per specs weighs 300g), but not too sure if that can be brought in without an import permit; theoretically should not need as it is not greater than 300g. Your thoughts?
Darren – you took a spark? Everything was fine?
Please give more idea about the Spark in Israel, I’m going this week & would like to bring a Ph4p, but would prefer a smaller one. I checked with the Israeli consulate here in HKG, they don’t know a thing !!
If we have world covering insurance (with the exception of USA) are we still required to join the FAI?
Also, I have read that operating times are daylight only due to the line of sight requirement.
I think it is better to have the membership even if you have insurance.
Your blog was helpful for me to fly my drone in Israel.
I got a temporary membership by sending an email as you mentioned in your blog. It was a good experience for me to fly drone in Israel.
