Basic VFR flight information

Entry:  Croatia is not part of the Schengen area, therefore all flights from/to another country must arrive/leave for/from an international airport and clear customs/immigration controls. Please check opening times for customs/immigration – they may be different from the airport opening hours.  
FPL: An FPL is compulsory for any flight which is partly or entirely carried out in a controlled airspace and for international flights. However, it is recommended to file an FPL for any flights within Croatia as well. An FPL must be filed at least 60 minutes prior to the flight. Flying over VFR routes, where possible, is required by the ATC. Please check your charts/applications and plan your flight accordingly.
Microlights:  Croatia does not require any permission for entry of foreign-registered microlights.
