Konec výpadku webových stránek

Vážení klienti,

stránky ÚCL včetně jednotlivých portálů (drony, ověřování spolehlivosti, letecký rejstřík) nebyly od 27. 2. večer do 28. 2. (cca 9:30) dostupné. Nyní jsou však již všechny weby funkční. Za vzniklé komplikace se omlouváme.

Dear clients,

The CAA websites, including web portals (drones, background check certifications, aviation register), were not available from the evening of February 27th until February 28th (approximately 9:30 AM). However, all websites are now operational. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Change of the background check process

With regards the amendment of the Act on Civil Aviation, which becomes effective from January 1, 2023, the process of the background check certificates is subject to change. Background check certificates issued after January 1, 2023 are valid for 1 year (thereby the distinction between the standard and thorough background check is abolished). Detailed information pertaining to the validity of the certificates issued in the past as well as the administrative procedure can be found at a following link:

Statement of the Civil Aviation Authority on cases of drones approaching aircraft and laser attacks

The Civil Aviation Authority has recently recorded an increase in the number of reported incidents in which the protection zones of airports have been violated by flying drones and aircraft have been hit by laser beams. In one case, a collision between a helicopter and a drone was even reported. The situation is alarming and the Civil Aviation Authority considers it necessary to comment on this situation.

Background check – Ukrainian criminal records
