    The flying rules/Laws are similar to the US and UK. Proximity to airports, LOS, over people etc...

    I fly regularly to Munich, Frankfurt (Frankfurt just last week in fact) and Berlin. Never had any problems at all going through immigration or security. There is no customs per se... and Immigration is generally awesome. No lines and non of the bravado like going through US immigration/customs

    This is proposed, so isnt set in stone yet along with the need for any Identification numbers, but you will avoid any trouble by adhering to the common basics it anyways.

    ...and you'll need a liability coverage/insurance. I don't know the regulation for foreigners traveling via or trough Germany.
