Flying drones in the vicinity of the airport requires permission
Flying a drone in the vicinity of an airport requires special permission from air traffic management on each occasion, and contact needs to be maintained with air traffic management while the drone is in flight. To contact local air traffic management, call LFV, switchboard +46 (0)11-19 20 00.

Interactive map for drone pilots
LFV has developed an interactive map, a so-called drone map, with detailed information and measurement tools aimed at drone pilots. On the map can be seen the extent of controlled airspace and where permission from air traffic management is needed in order to fly a drone. We encourage drone pilots to check the map before they fly and if they are the least uncertain about whether permission is needed or not.
Unlawful flying – a suspected violation of the Swedish Aviation Act
Unauthorised flights with a drone are investigated as a suspected violation of the Swedish Aviation Act.
