While nothing is concrete yet, we do have the initial recommendations for the planned upcoming, voluntary drone registration. Keep in mind, these are just recommendations and the FAA must still consider them.
Question: What drones qualify for registration?
Answer: Any drone that weighs more than 250 grams, or about half a pound, up to 55 pounds.
Q: When would I register?
A: Before you fly. Drone owners would have to register online before flying their aircraft. There is no point-of-sale registration.
Q: Does each drone require a different registration?
A: No. The task force recommended registration be owner-based, meaning owners would have one registration number for all of their drones.
Q: What information would I have to register?
A: Your name and street address (not mailing address).
Q: Would there be a fee?
A: No. If a fee is required, the task force recommended a tenth of a cent.
