ACTIVITY SELECTED: REQUEST OF PROFESSIONAL OVERFLIGHTS IN THE CALDERA DE TABURIENTE

Description of the activity

The use of drones of a  recreational nature or  at a private level is not permitted in the National Park.

Flights in the Caldera de Taburiente National Park require authorization from the General Directorate for the Protection of Nature.

This activity is prohibited, based on the following regulations, being authorized in some cases:

Decree 27/2005, of 1 March, approving the Master Plan for the Use and Management of the Caldera de Taburiente National

Park (B.O.C. no. 52, of 14.03.2005). Its Annex regulates, among other things, the following:

- section 3.3, point 2.p, establishes the prohibition, without limited character of "the practice with remote control apparatus

(kites, aeromodelism, etc), the flight in hang glider, paraglider, ultralight, balloons, etc".

- paragraph 3.3, point 2.q, provides for the prohibition, without limitation, of "overflight of any type of aircraft at less than

3,000 metres above sea level in the vertical of the Park".

With regard to legal formality, with regard to the concept of "aircraft", it is worth mentioning Law 48/1960, of 21 July, on

Air Navigation, which in its article eleven specifies the following: "Aircraft is understood to be: a) Any construction suitable

for the transport of persons or things capable of moving in the atmosphere thanks to the reactions of the air, whether or not it

is lighter than the latter and whether or not it has power-driven organs. (b) Any remotely controlled machinery which can be

supported by reactions of the air other than reactions of the air against the surface of the earth.

Order PRE/1841/2005, of 10 June, partially modifying the Order of 18 January 1993, of the Ministry of Relations with the

Courts and of the Secretariat of the Government, on prohibited and restricted flight zones. ( One. B.27 establishes a series of

points that by joining them in a polygon create the limits of flight restriction in La Caldera de Taburiente); updated by Royal

Decree 1180/2018 of 21 September, which develops the Air Regulations and common operational provisions for air

navigation services and procedures, and Law 30/2014 of 3 December, National Parks.

Attached are plans with the delimitation, and a detail of the surroundings of Roque de Los Muchachos, which includes part of

the facilities of the astrophysical installations. In addition to the points of the polygon, this Order specifies the following:

Vertical limits: From ground to flight level FL90. Type of restriction: National Park. Overflights are prohibited except State

Aircrafts (the rest is subject to authorization).
