FAQ

What is the performance of TTA's Agricultural Sprayer Drones?

Their performance depends on the type of crop and the weather conditions,as well as the type of multyrotor we use.
For example, with the M6E-1 spraying efficiency varies from 8 to 11 acres in arable land, at a spraying time of 10 minutes
with 10 liters of liquid.

What licenses do I need to use a 10 liter TTA Drone Agricultural Sprayer?

Under the current regulations for the professional use of an Agricultural Drone 10 liter spraying, licensing is required
UAS PILOT C – Multy Rotors. This particular operator license is Open Class and concerns drones weighing between 4 and 25 kilos.
The cost of the license varies and is below 700 €. There are several Pilot Academies throughout
the country that can undertake your training, safely and reliably.

The use of TTA UAS requires pilot with UAS PILOT C – Multy Rotors license, registration to the CAA and insurance.

Under the general regulatory framework of law 4036/2012 the application of pesticides by aerial spraying, has been banned since 2012. This law correctly forbids traditional way mass spraying of large-scale pesticide spreading, as the risk of water pollution,
of the flora and fauna of the sprayed, but also of the surrounding areas, is enormous.
However, spraying with drone is permitted by deviating from the aforementioned frame as well it is easy to understand its usefulness, their accuracy and especially the great opportunity that offer us, not just to reduce the amount of pesticide used
compared to ground spraying, but to push agriculture into organic practices and sustainable cultivation.

The legal framework in Greece for UAS has begun to be created in 2016, which determines their use.
The rules for UAS flights have been published in the UAS Regulation and you can find them in Government Gazette B-3152 / 30-9-2016. See also the Rules for  Licenses for Operators, in Government Gazette B-4527 / 30.12.2016, as well as the Government
Gazette Β1607 / 10.5.2017 determines the amount of payout to be paid on a case-by-case basis.
All UAS owners must be aware of the above Regulations!
A common European directive is expected to be announced in 2019 and put into practice.
