Drone regulation in Venezuela

Although I did not find any official legal text when I was researching the drone laws in Venezuela, I came across a form with which to register for multicopter flights. On the document, you can choose whether to fly privately or commercially, choose different weight categories and make many other details about the desired drone flight.

From this, I conclude that in Venezuela all flights with a multicopter must be registered individually with the Instituto Nacional de Aeronáutica Civil Venezuela (INAC). Of course, I can not say that for sure. Probably also the division into weight categories has effects on the conditions, under which one can fly. The following three weight groups are available:

  • Micro-RPA: under 500 grams
  • Mini RPA: 500 grams to 5 kilograms
  • RPA Ligero: 5 – 25 kilograms
  • RPA Medianos: 25 – 150 kg
  • RPA Pesados: from 150 kilograms

Most maneuvers for private users will probably be in the category of mini-RPAs.

In addition to the information about the planned flight, you also have to specify which qualification you bring. There are various pilot licenses available. Apparently, there is a partial requirement to obtain an appropriate license. Unfortunately, I have not been able to get further information so far.
