All Drones Will Now Have to Be Registered with The FAA
It’s all fun and games until someone messes it up and you have to register your drone with the FAA.
Starting on Monday, the FAA announced regulations regarding drones. Starting on Dec. 21, anyone with a drone that weighs between half a pound and 55 pounds will be required to register it by February 19, 2016.
Registering will be free for the first 30 days. After those 30 days are up, the fee for each individual drone user will be $5 for a three-year certificate of registration. If on Christmas you get a drone from Santa, you must register the aircraft prior to its first flight. So it may be in good interest of the drone gifter that they get the info for the person receiving the drone. Happy Holidays!
