Flight bans and safety distances
Drone flights are only possible within visual line of sight and without aids. Make sure that the weather conditions are good, more specifically that you are 1.5 kilometers horizontally and 300 meters vertically away from clouds.
You should keep at least 50 meters of horizontal distance to people, vehicles, buildings and structures during take-off and landing, and 100 meters during the flight.
A safety distance of 150 meters applies to crowds of people and larger groups of vehicles.
If you are planning drone flights in controlled airspace, at a height of more than 50 meters above the ground or closer than 5.5 kilometers to airports, you must coordinate your flight plan with the air traffic control. This is possible via this link.
