The FAA has changed some of their guidelines. It’s important to know about them because they help keep the air safe for all. The FAA keeps track of drones as well so if you have one you may need to register it with them. Definitely find out if you get a drone.
- FAA changes to its operations and registration procedures now dictates that hobby owners of small aircraft, operating in compliance with section 366, are not required to register.
- Registration requirements remain mandatory for business and commercial owners of small unmanned aircraft not exclusively in compliance with section 366.
- An automation process that will be developed to handle the high demand for authorization under 14 CFR Part 107 is not expected to be operational until 2018.
“The FAA continues to encourage voluntary registration for all owners of small unmanned aircraft.”
