Drones are becoming increasingly popular, but it is important to know the rules that apply. When you fly drones, you are obliged to follow the laws and regulations that apply to all aviation and to fly within and above the airspace that constitutes Skellefteå’s control zone (CTR), a permit is required.
The rules that apply and whether a permit is required depend mainly on what the drone is to be used for. On the Swedish Transport Agency’s website, you can read more about the rules that apply to drones. It is also good to study the specially made map for pilots of unmanned aerial vehicles (RPAS) provided by the Swedish Civil Aviation Administration. The map has been developed to make it easier for RPAS pilots to determine where they can fly without disrupting regular air traffic.
To fly within the Skellefteå control zone and terminal area, a permit from the Skellefteå air traffic control is required. If the air traffic control is not open for the current flight, email the following information to the air traffic control:
Between what times you plan to fly
A telephone number that you can reach , if the flight suddenly needs to be canceled.

Skellefteå Airport protects the environment and takes that task very seriously.
We are part of a number of environmental projects, among others
Green Airport – together with several other regional airports, we have set environmental goals to reduce waste, carbon dioxide and energy use.
Together with its 27 regional airports, Green Airports has mapped the climate impact of individual airports and set ambitious targets for the coming years. During the period 2019-2020, our 27 member airports have mapped their emissions, energy use and circular flows. The mapping was a first step in the Green Airport’s work towards sustainable travel.
The survey shows that airports have made varying degrees of progress in their environmental work. Some airports have been at the forefront of their environmental efforts for several years, while others are eager to get started on the runway. Several of the airports in the project are already close to zero carbon emissions in terms of the actual operation of the airport. By working together, airports can learn from each other.
Skellefteå Airport is one of Sweden, Europe’s and the World’s first fossil-free airports. In 2020, the airport had for the first time a zero emission of fossil carbon dioxide, something that measurements carried out in accordance with the Airport Carbon and Emissions Reporting Tool (ACERT) show. Today, the airport has fossil-free heating, fossil-free green electricity and fossil-free fuels for its vehicle fleet.
The strategic and operational work of becoming a fossil-free airport has in recent years been carried out purposefully through a transition to:
- Fossil-free heating with biofuel
- Fossil-free electricity consumption through certified green electricity
- Fossil-free fuels for vehicles through electricity and the biofuel HVO-100
We are happy to receive job applications on an ongoing basis.
