There are FAA laws that explain how, when, and where you can navigate drones for recreational objectives. You must be regarded as a recreational user if you are flying unmanned aircraft for fun. It is important to know when and where you can fly and how to register your drone. For more information about the latest drone laws visit https://dronetownco.com/buying-guide/drone-laws/.
Following these rules will keep you safe and your drones and will help keep the airspace available to everyone.
- Register your drone, mark (PDF) was outside with a registration number and bring proof of registration with you.
- Fly only for recreational purposes.
- The drone can fly at or below 400 feet above the ground when in controlled airspace.
- Obtain permission before operating in controlled airspace.
- Keep your drones in the visible line of sight, or within line-of-sight of a visible witness who is co-located (physically next) and in direct contact with you.
- Do not fly at night unless you have a flash that enables you to know the position and adjustment of each moment.
- Never conflict with crisis response exercises such as flood mitigation, any type of accident response, law execution actions, fire, or hurricane rescue efforts.
- Never fly under the control of drugs or alcohol. Many over-the-counter have side effects that can change your ability to reliably operate your drone.
