Cabinet of Ministers Regulations No. 656 in Riga august 15 2006 (pr. No 42 14) procedures to unmanned aircraft and other aircraft flights, which do not qualify as aircraft Issued in accordance with the law "on the air" article 47 of i. General questions 1. determines the order in which the Republic of Latvia to unmanned aircraft and other aircraft flights, which do not qualify as aircraft (hereinafter-the unmanned aircraft). 2. Unmanned aircraft flights in the Republic of Latvia controlled airspace (airspace, in which the air traffic control based on Visual and instrument flight rules) and air space, which is located less than 10 km away from any aerodrome, is allowed, provided that the following conditions are met: 3. If unmanned aircraft flight operations has been established for limited flight airspace area, you can take the height not exceeding 120 m. 4. These provisions annexes II, III, IV and V of this unmanned aircraft flights may drive the person reached 18 years of age. 5. Rocket model and the rules referred to in point 16 radio controlled model planes flying instructor can also be performed in the presence of a person who is not a gus amounted 18 years of age. The instructor is responsible for that flight operations and their consequences. Rocket model is unmanned rocket, which was made of lightweight and fragile materials that construct is not significant in the metal part that uses no more than 125 g slow burning jet fuel, and whose total laden weight of which does not exceed 500 g. 6. Unmanned aircraft flights shall be carried out in a way that does not endanger human life, health or safety of the goods, and does not harm the environment. 7. the unmanned aircraft are designed and equipped so as to ensure its immediate settlement or self-defeating if unmanned aircraft operator lost control over its management. 8. the uncontrolled airspace controlled unmanned aircraft (with the exception of the provisions referred to in paragraph 16 of the aircraft) the operator shall maintain radio communications in a single frequency band with other users of this aircraft to the flight safety report it-led unmanned aircraft's location and route. II. Unmanned rockets 9. Latvian air space can make an unmanned rocket flew a must which: 9.1. made from lightweight and fragile materials without significant metal components for their design;
9.2. equipped with industrially manufactured engine that is protected against spontaneous ignition of the same mechanical effects or temperature up to 80 ° C and is sealed by the manufacturer with a non-metallic material easy removable nozzle and seals in the front of the engine (except where the engine has been designed to carry out his functions with the seals);
9.3. equipped with aerodynamic braking devices (parachute, Ribbon, aerodynamic braking surface) that provide unmanned rockets safe landing;
9.4. equipped with electronically controlled starting mechanism that starts the moment the operator supports being in a safe distance of at least 5 m from the unmanned rocket launch site. 10. Unmanned rocket flights performed during the period from sunrise to sunset. 11. before unmanned rockets started its flight operator, ensure that launch area at least 500 m in RADIUS is not in people who are not related to the launch, animals, vehicles, personal belongings, fire and spr dzienbīstam in articles. 12. Unmanned rocket launches from launch facilities located on stable and fireproof and prevent accidental unmanned rockets course change. 13. Unmanned rocket flights made specifically for a particular flight operations to create a limited flight airspace area, where clouds or other phenomena not overshadowed by more than half (4/8 okt) from the launch zone and horizontal visibility at any height not less than 10 km. 14. It is prohibited to conduct unmanned rocket flights: 14.1. closer than 10 km from aerodrome;
14.2. closer than 500 m from buildings, bridges, rail, highway, road, transport DM diem road junction, low voltage, high voltage electricity and communication lines, cemeteries, sanctuaries and military infrastructure assets that are used in the national armed forces. 15. This provision 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 above requirements do not apply to the missile models. III. Radio controlled radio controlled model planes to 16 lidmodel is the unmanned aircraft (except unmanned balloons, kites and rockets), weighing not more than 20 kg (without fuel) together with the equipment. 17. the Republic of Latvia, the sky can make a radio controlled model planes of flights: 17.1. which is not equipped with metal or repaired the propeller or not secure engine;
17.2. the construction parts (wings, tail) is not a sharp front edges;
17.3. which radio is in vibration absorbing packaging (container);
17.4. designed and built so that the flight would not be possible during the accidental heavy parts or ballast separation from them;
17.5. the hull of the plaque with the owner's name (name), address (legal address) and phone number. 18. Running a radio controlled model planes for flights, you can only use the radio frequency that a specific law on radio spectrum band distribution model aircraft flight operations. 19. the flights are operated by radio controlled model aircraft operator has selected the airspace above the area of the zone that is at least 500 m long and 200 m wide. Radio controlled model aircraft operator shall ensure that, in this area, and 50 m safety zone around it not in people, animals, vehicles, as well as fire and explosion dangerous items. 20. Radio controlled model aircraft operator prior to taking a flight make sure: that the intended management 20.1. control transmitter radio frequency does not use another operator;
20.2. for correct operation the controller before and after starting the engine. 21. If less than 200 m from the radio controlled model planes start (start) on people, take-off time of the first operator manoeuvres the flight headed to the zone. 22. If you encounter radio interference or disturbance of management control, radio controlled model planes in flight and stopped immediately to put lidmodel. 23. If the radio controlled lidmodel flights not previously checked its flight shall be carried out not less than 200 m from people. 24. it is prohibited to drive radio-controlled lidmodel in that: it takes flight near 24.1. about 200 m from buildings, bridges, highways, railways, road transport, transport road junction, low voltage, high voltage electricity and communication lines, cemeteries, sanctuaries and infra structure of military objects that are used in the national armed forces;
