    Amateur Pilot !

    For drones until 1kg
    allowed to fly on private property until 10m height
    Not allowed to capture (by photo or video) your neighbours (This is going to be unpossible to follow at 10m height)

    For drones +1kg
    drone needs to be registered (europe wants registration with a chip)
    only allowed on RC airfields (not shure about max height, hope not 10m), i think 30m
    Again following the european and Belgian privacy laws
    not allowed on private property

    Pro Pilot !

    Needs to follow a Course in theory and flying (the same course as for a ULM pilot)
    Then a medical control
    Then a exam in theory and an exam in flying
    The registration of the bird
    after all this you are allowed to fly at a max height of 91m (higher if you do a official request max 6 months in front)
    Not allowed to fly above streets, city's (except if a special request was made and accepted), big crowd of people
    Not allowed to fly in restricted zones (as harbors, train-stations, airfields, official buildings, properties of the Belgian king, ...)

    as you can see flying a drone will not be easy in Belgium

    It seems that Europe is also working on a general drone law, Hope this will change the law that is comming now later in 2016

    ps: I think i will go to fly in Netherland, the law for amateur pilots is not so restricted as in Belgum

    Most likely the end of my hobby if this is coming to the Netherlands or Europe.

    They should hurry to finally sign TIPP then you can sue your crap government if they make such a law.

    There is also an other thing you can do: Get a girl from Bulgaria and ignore the laws. When they catch you its her drone and she was flying they can send her a fine but its nulled in Bulgaria because its not illegal there and cannot be executed. :D

    I heard that they will limit the height of flying a amateur drone in The Netherlands from max 120m to max 50m. But you can still fly on other places.

    They can only do this if they manage to get a working geofencing chip in your drone. The first thing I would do is put that chip in a microwave :p

    Same story again and again.Instead of a common european regulation every country is regulating by themselves, the result: dorne pilots in europe are nor allowed to fly with their licenses outside of their countries, so basically one of the keys of the european spirit of freedom to work in any country is not applied to us. This is ridiculous and a non sense, I cannot legally fly in UK, ITALY or any regulted country and my collegues from other countries cannot fly here in Spain, seems something much more from the 70´s than from 2015!
