The issuance of permit to fly and/or flight conditions is subject to fee. The amount depends on the nature of the request and on the MTOW of the aircraft (Cf. Decree of the 20th December 2007).
Please consult the Redevances de certification et de surveillance (Certification and monitoring license fee) page.
A fee may be paid :
By credit card on the secured website.
To confirm the payment of the fee you are asked to return to the DGAC a dated and signed copy of the form (.pdf format) called “redevance de certification et de surveillance” which is provided at the end of the payment process. This type of payment is preferred because it enables faster processing of your application.
In case the online payment by credit card is impossible, you may pay by bank transfer, but the processing time of your application may be considerably longer. The transfer must be made to the following account :
Account holder : AC-Budget Ann Controle Expl AE

Important : in the subject of transfer, include the registration of the aircraft as ex. : « permit to fly for N-123AB »
Organisations frequently asked to pay (20 payments per quarter) fees to the DGAC can apply for opening of a payment account. In this case they receive periodic invoices and are not subject to compulsory pre-payment for each-permit to fly.
Important notice : A permit to fly will be issued if the application is accompanied by evidence of payment of the fees. If a request for a permit to fly is found inadmissible by the DSAC or is abandoned by the applicant, the authority will refund the money collected.
