Drone Registration Is Back, Thank You Donald Trump

Gavel and Law Books If you haven't heard yet, it's true. Effective December 21st, 2015, all Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones) are required to be registered with the FAA (again). That means you will have to register your drone if you want to fly it outside, anytime, anywhere; even for non-commercial use. The silver lining [...]

The FAA Would Appreciate It If You Register Your Drone

While no longer mandatory, the FAA would still "appreciate" it if you voluntarily registered your drone. I'd be curious to learn what the statistics show for voluntary registration. For some reason I expect was a drastic drop off. The response to John Taylor’s FOIA request asking the FAA for records that indicate the recreational drone [...]

Do You Believe The FAA’s $5 Registration Is An Unfair “Drone Tax?”

Since December 21, 2015, the FAA has required all drone owners to register their non-commercial drones. While many drone owners were against the registration at the time, it still became the law of the land and a failure to register became punishable by fines and worse. Adding insult to injury in the eyes of many, the FAA [...]

Enforcing The FAA’s National Drone Registry

The new national drone registry is officially open for business, and the FAA now expects you will register your consumer/hobbyist drones voluntarily. If you don't, there is a "maximum civil penalty is a fine of up to $27,500." As if that wasn't enough, "Criminal penalties can reach $250,000 or three years in prison." However, Keith [...]
