Suspension of operational limitations

    The operation of ultra-light-structured aircraft (ULM) and those aircraft that require direct involvement of an occupant’s physical effort for take-off or landing, such as paragliders and delta wings (see the third transitional provision of Royal Decree 1591/1999 of 15 October 1999) is subject to the operational limitations laid down in Article 3 of Royal Decree 2876/1982 of 15 October 1982.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, the State Aviation Safety Agency, on an exceptional basis for justified reasons and upon reasoned request, may suspend any of these operational limitations, in accordance with the provisions of Article 3 referred to in the preceding paragraph.

    The request for suspension of operational limitations must be addressed to the Director of the State Aviation Safety Agency stating, in addition to the requirements of Article 66 of Law 39/2015 of 1 October 2015:

    • Activity
    • Exceptional reason why the application is made
    • Dates and times (UTM)
    • Coordinates of the airspace in which the activity shall be carried out and the height/altitude indicating whether the airspace is controlled or uncontrolled airspace
    • Aircraft or participants for which suspension is requested
