Many of our fans are drone pilots.  So we wanted to share this notice from the FAA

If you are flying solely for recreational purposes, you need to do the following:

  • Register your drone if it weighs more than 0.55 pounds (250g) and externally mark the drone with your registration number; Registration is good for three years
  • Pass The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST) and present your completion certificate (paper or electronic) to FAA or public safety personnel if asked
  • Keep your drone within your visual line of sight; If you’re flying First Person View (FPV) you’ll need to have someone next to you who can see your drone at all times.
  • Never fly over 400 feet above ground level
  • Use the B4UFly app to be aware of any airspace restrictions in your area
  • Check with your local community to verify any restrictions that could apply to the take-off or landing of your drone; Airspace authorizations may be obtained through our Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) via our approved service suppliers
  • Give way and do not interfere with any manned aircraft.


For questions contact your local DronePro Representative or the FAA UAS Support Center at: 844-FLY-MY-UA or UASHELP@faa.gov
