We are not international aviation attorneys and do our best to keep this page up-to-date for drone pilots, but the reality is that given the pace of the small unmanned aerial system (sUAS) industry and how governments are responding, drone regulations in Luxembourg can change throughout the year, and those changes can be hard to track. If we missed something, please reach out to let us know.
