Tenerife


#1

Has anyone flown in Tenerife? And do they have local rules or is it to be treated as Spain?
I’ve looked at it on DroneMate but there’s no comment.
I’m lucky enough to be spending Christmas there.


#2

I’ve flown my paraglider there … :wink:


#3

I was there in June, didn’t take the MP though, wasnt sober enough to fly anyway.

As far as I know it comes under the Spanish rules.

Flying in Tiede national park is prohibited and quite a few people have been slapped with fines.

Watch out for the wind as well, calm one minute and windy the next.

24/7? :bowing_man:


#5

Ask me again 8th December, I’m there the first week celebrating my 50th.

I have friends who live on the island and fly without problems


#6

Not quite 24/7, I had a break when I was sleeping.

Lightweight ;o)

I’ve flown in Tenerife and it’s under Spanish law. To be honest with you I’m not sure how much it’s worth it - you can’t legally fly in a national park (so that’s Teide out the window) and not close to an airport. Tenerife isn’t that big so that drastically limits potential flying space. And then there’s the high winds the Canary Islands are known for…if I was going back any time soon I think I’d be tempted to leave my drone at home. But that’s just me :thinking:
