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).

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 [...]

Rough Start For Drone Registration

Monday was a rocky start for the FAA's new drone registration program, leaving many drone owners frustrated.
