Attention all UAS Operators in the Specific Category!

"Currently, there is a sixteen (16) week backlog before an application is reviewed by the authority.”- The Irish Aviation Authority issued UAM012 - Guidance on Applications for Operational Authorisation on the 3rd of October 2023.

In order to renew your Operational Authorisation (OA) you will have to start a new application on MySRS. Follow these simple steps to start your renewal application:

  • In My Organisations choose the Accountable Manager profile for the desired organisation.
  • Press on the "UAS" box.
  • Press "Apply for an UAS Operational Authorisation"
  • Choose the desired drones you want to use under this OA.
