The Task Force assigned to provide FAA
Administrator Michael Huerta with
recommendations on the registration process is
still days away from delivering this
information. But at least one company is already
offering to help people register their drones
for a fee.
Speaking to the Task Force two weeks ago,
Administrator Huerta told the group to provide
guidance on a streamlined unmanned aircraft
registration process that will be simple and
easy to complete, and which types of UAS would
need to be registered and which would not.
The Task Force agreed and is working on
recommendations for a system that is similar to
registering any newly purchased product with its
manufacturer as well as a minimum weight for
unmanned aircraft that must be registered. Drone
owners should visit the FAA website for official
updates on the unmanned aircraft registry.
