What kind of drone pilot are you? Part 1

Updated: Nov 16, 2019

Do you fly for fun?

If so the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has some rules you need to know about.... (I found all my information at https://www.faa.gov/uas/recreational_fliers/)

Know these are not suggestion from the FAA, but the law.

  1. If your drone weighs more than 0.55 lbs and less than 55lbs, you must register it with the FAA and post the number on the drone. https://faadronezone.faa.gov/#/

  2. You can fly only in class G (or uncontrolled airspace) and below 400 feet. The easiest way to explain this is stay away from airports and watch for airplanes (or other flying objects) in the sky and stay low. The FAA has ways to obtain authorization to fly near airports and ways to find out if you are in controlled airspace. If you are unsure you should investigate via their website.

  3. You should always be able to see your drone!

  4. Never fly over groups of people, stadiums full of people or public events

  5. Never fly near emergencies of any kind

  6. Never fly under the influence of drugs or alcohol

There can be criminal or civil charges if you are found in violation of FAA laws. Drones are not toys, but they can be fun if used safely!

The last bit of information states the FAA may be coming out with an aeronautical safety test for all individuals who wish to fly drones.


Stay tuned for part 2....
