Deadline for Drone Registration Refund Approaching

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Drone owners should register their unmanned aerial vehicles into the federal database by January 20 if they want their five dollar registration fee refunded. The FAA is also promoting a new app called B-4-U Fly which can help if you have questions about the rules for flying drones. Drones weighing between .55 lbs to 55 pounds must be registered in the FAA’s database. Drones which weigh more than 55 lbs must be registered as a typical aircraft. Administrator Michael Huerta with the Federal Aviation Administration told a panel at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month that the agency has simplified registrations. Huerta: “We’ve streamlined the current authorization process – the rule will greatly decrease the need for case-by-case approvals – increasing commercial operators’ ease-of-access to the national airspace system.” When registering, owners will be required to pay $5.00 but those that register before January 20 will have that fee refunded.
