Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) / Drones

If you own an Unmanned Aircraft (UA), sometimes referred to as a drone, you must register it with the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) registry by February 19, 2016. A new federal law requires unmanned aircraft registration for the safety of everyone who uses the national airspace in the United States. More than 342,000 people have already registered. Civil and criminal penalties will be imposed if your aircraft is not registered by the deadline. No matter the size, the weight of the craft determines whether it must be registered or not.

You can register your UAS (drone) online at www.faa.gov/uas/registration. The cost is $5, and registration is valid for three years.
