    I wonder if it is similar to the new MINIDRONE rules that are effective as of Juli 1st in the Netherlands.

    Sub 4Kg Minidrone means:

    Not needed:
    Airworthiness certificate
    Medical attest for pilot
    Notams
    Flightplan
    Operational manual
    Practical exam or certificate

    Need:
    Certificate of registred RPAS groundschool, including flight preparation course
    (or RPA-L, PPL)
    Aircraft registration
    ROC-light
    Proof of insurance

    The new Dutch rules are quite simple:

    Not allowed:
    To fly higher than 50m or further than 100m
    Less then 50 meter distance from EVERYTHING including anything or anybody 'under your control'.
    (Everything in this case means virtually everything. Except small roads <80km/h., provided there's no traffic)
    No exemption or special permissions possible for anything, in any case, ever.

    With these rules, they hope to lower the barrier for small business to get into the drone business. At the same time, RPA-L pilots, operating under a full ROC, can now use their sub 4Kg drone and respond very quickly to requests, for news purposed or the likes, without having to file notams, extensive flight planning etc. They are to follow the Minidrone rules for these flights however.

    The above applies to recreational flying as well.
