1.1 The website "d-flight S.p.A" (www.d-flight.it below, for brevity, the “Site”), is the website owned by d-flight S.p.A. (“d-flight”), with legal headquarters in Rome, Via Salaria 716, Tax Code and VAT Number. 14996981008, registered in the Register of Enterprises of Rome REA No. 1560988. The Site is the portal dedicated to UAS operators for the provision of the Services (as defined below). It allows, among other things, the registration of operators of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in the Italian database and the assignment of a unique european identification code for each of them (c.d. QR), pursuant to the European Regulation. (EU) 2019/947 published by EASA, the European Aviation Safety Agency, on 24 May 2019 and the UAS-IT Regulation Ed.1 of 4 January 2020 (the “ENAC Regulation”) published by the National Agency of Civil Aviation (“ENAC“) and available on the ENAC website at the link: https://www.enac.gov.it/la-normativa/normativa-enac/regolamenti/regolamenti-ad-hoc/regolamento-uas-it. More generally, this Site aims to provide users with information and services related to the recreational and professional use of unmanned aircraft, otherwise known as drones, within national airspace, in accordance with applicable legislation.
1.2 You acknowledge that your use of the Site and Services is subject to the acceptance of the terms and conditions established below (the “General Conditions”) as well as any further applicable conditions or terms with reference to certain Services. These General Terms therefore govern the use of the Site, the relationship between the user who registers on the d-flight and d-flight platform in relation to the use of the Site and the possible supply of the services.
1.4. You acknowledge that your use of the Site is therefore subject to the acceptance of these General Terms, which can always be changed or updated by d-flight. The first version is identified with the numeric code 1.0.0. Each subsequent version will contain the number of the previous one and will contain the following formula: "Any version prior to this, produced in an equal or similar electronic form, is not valid and effective. Access to the Site and the use of the Services after the publication of any revisions will constitute consent to be constrained by such revisions. These General Terms of Contract may be amended under any specific contract terms that may be applied to a particular Service.
In these General Conditions, we mean by:
“UAS": Unmanned Aerial System
“UAV": Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
“VLOS“: Visual Line of Sight
“BVLOS“: Beyond Visual Line of Sight
“SAPR": Remotely piloted aircraft system pursuant to the previous ENAC Regulation
“operator": The physical or legal person who is responsible for the operations.
“QR Code": The printable digital code to be applied on the APR and on the Ground Control Station for identification purposes pursuant to the ENAC Regulation.
"Drone Operation Area" (DOA): service through which the user can represent the area in which he intends to simultaneously use his UAV, for Open category operations in VLOS mode. By creating a DOA, the user verifies any interaction with established airspace reserves or other flight restrictions applicable to the volumes of space affected by the operation. The user can activate / deactivate the area when the flight operation is completed. The activated area will be visible on the d-flight maps to all other users who intend to operate nearby. Users without "authority" or "supervision" privileges will see, in addition to the area concerned, the "Operator Code" of the user owner of the active DOA.
"Drone Operation Plan" (DOP): service through which the user can represent the area in which he intends to use his UAV in a certain future time horizon, for Specific and Certified categories operations. By creating a DOP, the user verifies any interaction with established airspace reserves or other flight restrictions applicable to the volumes of space affected by the operation. The inclusion of the PDO is subjected to a validation process carried out by d-flight. Validation does not in any way replace any authorization / approval processes carried out by the authorities in charge, in accordance with current legislation. The user can activate / deactivate the validated area when the flight operation is completed. The validated area will be visible on the d-flight maps to all other users who intend to operate nearby and in the same time window. The activated area will be visible on the d-flight maps to all other users operating nearby. Users without "authority" or "supervision" privileges will see, in addition to the area concerned, the "Operator Code" of the user owner of the DOP.
"Tracking": service through which the user can make his position visible and share it with d-flight users. Tracking can be activated / deactivated simultaneously and in association with the activation / deactivation of DOA and DOP.
In the case of activation of the tracking for the DOA, users without "authority" or "supervision" privileges will see, together with the position, the "User Id" of the user owner of the track. In the case of activation of the tracking for the PDO, users without “authority” or “supervision” privileges will be able to see, together with the position, the license plate of the vehicle used.
“Regulated services": services specifically attributed to d-flight under the Regulations published by ENAC on the use of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), commonly called" drones ". These include, by way of non-exhaustive example:
• Registration as an UAS operator
• Issuance of the unique code (QR Code) for operator identification
• Static identification by means of the QR Code
