Experimental fixed wing drones

Our OUTDOOR TEST AREA EBR 62 is used for experimental fixed wing drone flights with or without observer, taking off and landing for test, demonstration and scientific research flights. This is a unique test site for more uncommon drones.

Applications

  • UAV multi-copter
  • Fixed-wing flight training
  • Sensor testing & calibration
  • Hardware testing
  • Testing of non-certified & experimental equipment
  • Demonstration & events

Facilities

  • Surface: approx. 1400m x 900m (88 Ha)
  • Maximum area altitude 2000 Ft AMSL (1750 Ft AGL/ 530 m AGL)*
    • *Minus 100 Ft safety buffer
  • Flying altitudes above 150 Ft AGL (45m) require coordination and approval of the DAC
  • WIFI available
  • Permanent contact with control tower

Operational requirements

  • Simultaneous flights of unmanned and manned aircraft allowed
  • RPAS operating in EBR 62 must take off and land in EBR 61 (see procedures EBR 61).
  • Permanent contact between de Drone Zone Responsible (DZR) and the DAC thru ProTalk 2-way ground communication system (provided at DronePort) and back up by mobile phone
  • The area has to be activated by NOTAM.  NOTAM request will be introduced by the DronePort OPS Manager after drone-flight slot approval. 
  • Slot request to be introduced by the drone operator at the latest 2 working days before the day of the flight event.
  • Observers must position themselves along the South East borderline of EBR 62 and must maintain radio contact with the DZR and DAC to announce all area border crossings and safety problems.
  • Cars must be parked at least 40 meters from the take-off, landing and operating area.
  • Spectators are not allowed in the operating area during flights.
  • Access roads to and from take-off and landing areas must be physically blocked, signs must indicate the danger and drone activity.
  • DZR must contact DAC to inform the start and end of drone operations.
