FAA UAV Registration Starts Today

rieglThe FAA will open its mandatory UAS registration program today in a move that could likely transition a growing hobbyist community to mass-market commercial industry.

Owners will be required to submit their names, home and email addresses to a national database, and to put a registration number on unmanned aircraft weighing from half a pound to 55 pounds.

An owner of a drone before Monday will have until Feb. 19 to register, but anyone who gets a drone after the website opens will have to register before its first flight.
