Suspension of operational limitations

    The operation of ultra-light structure aircraft (ULM) and those aircraft that need the direct competition of the physical effort of an occupant for take-off or landing, such as paragliders and delta wings, is subject to the operating limitations set out in Article 4(1) of Royal Decree 765/2022 of 20 September.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, the State Aviation Safety Agency, exceptionally for justified reasons and upon reasoned request, may suspend any of these operating limitations, as indicated in paragraph 3 of the previous Article.

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

    • 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
    • Coordinates of the airspace in which the activity will take place and the height/altitude indicating whether it is controlled or uncontrolled airspace.

    Instructions for coordinates:

    It is necessary to separate latitude and longitude by a space.

    • Example: 384045N 0023433W would be correct
    • The altitude indication in the application shall be made in FT MSL.
    • You must send json file with the request. This coordinate file is generated through Insignia (

    Requests that do not complete this data correctly will not be accepted. In addition, tickets that have been submitted less than 30 days in advance will not be received, in compliance with the provisions of AIC 02/90.
