Using drones at Snowhotel Kirkenes

Updated: Feb 8



We are very happy to have both professional and hobby photographers and filmmakers making content at the Snowhotel. However, please be aware that Snowhotel Kirkenes is in a regulated area due to proximity to the airport. ALWAYS APPLY TO THE LOCAL AVIATION AUTHORITY AVINOR BEFORE TAKING FLIGHT. Relax, its quite easy and usually fast. But be sure to do it, or you may be fined.

CONTACT INFORMATION AND LOCAL ROUTINES FOR KIRKENES CONTROL TOWER
 
FOR DRONE FLIGHTS WITHIN 5 KM OF KIRKENES AIRPORT USING UTM:
Avinor Flysikring AS has with partners developed NINOX DRONE – a UTM system (Unmanned Traffic Management) that streamlines the handling of the ever-increasing number of drones for the air traffic service. The system also makes it very easy for the drone operator to relate to air traffic control, as it provides easier communication and better access to information about the airspace and regulations.

Download the app for your mobile phone or tablet, or use the web version:
1.   Register as a user
2. Make sure you have an "authenticator app", e.g. Microsoft Authenticator – this is due to two-factor authentication
3. Record required data
4. Drone operator is now ready to create a flight plan. This implies:
1.       Desired location for flight
2.       Departure time and duration
3.       Altitude
4.       Other details
The drone operator has now made a request for a flight to air traffic control (LTT). It is important to note that this is not automatically an approval as the flight plan must be assessed against other air traffic in the area. LTT will then evaluate and approve/provide feedback on the flight plan. When the drone operator is ready, a request for permission to fly should be sent.
Secondly, permission to fly will be accepted with confirmation from LTT after consideration of other local conditions.
Once the drone operator has received this message, flying can be started.

FOR FLYING BY DRONE WITHIN 5 KM OF KIRKENES AIRPORT WITHOUT USING UTM:
If the drone operator is unable to use the Ninox Drone, the following applies:
