Even within a single state ist possible to have different authorities. The flight request needs to include informations like a copy of a valid insurance, reason for flight, date, time and launch location etc. The local police should be informed prior the flight to avaoid problems.

Travel Experiences

[June 25, 2012 at 8:35am] During a trip from Chicago to Romania (with stop in Frankfurt) I had three Lipos in the luggage. One was retained by security in Frankfurt. I found a note saying European regulations permit only two Lipos in a the luggage. Lipos are considered dangerous objects on board of an aircraft. Good to know. [Taken from DIY Drones]
