Having read Carl Meek's post on different country requirements (Germany permit is listed as ?) does anyone have 2021 experience of procedure for permit aircraft flying in Germany please? I have searched the AIP and Gen 1-17 (from a LAA post but dated 2002) where permission needs to be applied for but has anyone applied to the DFS and what email address was successful?

Any help much appreciated.

Are you intending to fly a UK reg permit a/c to Germany?

If so you’ll need to consider the route and other countries over which you may fly.

Also your pilot licence status if it’s an NPPL.

We went to Bonn & Koblenz in August in an RV8. No problem at all.

GAM-DVR-Calais-KOK-LNO direct across Belgium at FL60. Most accommodating.

Biggest difference we found was everyone in Germany on the radio speaking German only.

Enjoy your trip

If your Permit aircraft is not a homebuilt, then as above you'll require permission. (Max 180 days each year)

The link unfortunately doesn't give contact details from whom to request permission, although it references Luftfahrt-Bundesamt, Division B 1 ( ... _node.html)

Strangely they don't seem to publish email contacts but the postal address and relevant phone numbers are:

Division B 1
38144 Braunschweig
Fax: +49 531 2355-3199
Telephone: +49 531 2355 + extension 3102/3125/3126
