Federal Drone Laws: Registration Of Remote-Control Unmanned Aircraft Required By Aviation Administration

Regulation of drones varies at the state level. Pictured: An IRIS+ drone from 3D Robotics, referred to as “Hawkeye,” stands on the runway at Naval Base Ventura County Sea Range, Point Mugu, near Oxnard, California, July 31, 2015. Reuters/Patrick T. Fallon
The Federal Aviation Administration wants a list of all U.S. owners of remote-controlled drones. The agency was expected Monday to announce new rules regarding civilian-owned unmanned aerial drones in an effort to track the devices back to their owners if it is involved in an accident, Lexington, Kentucky’s WKYT-TV reported](http://www.wkyt.com/wymt/home/headlines/FAA-to-announce-new-drone-rules-Monday-334050671.html).
First responders and transportation officials have said that near-crashes between the drones and much larger aircraft, including passenger planes, are a major concern, as unmanned aerial devices have become more widely available. Pilots reported 650 drone sightings this year – that’s quadruple the average seen in previous years, according to the FAA](http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2015/08/13/drone-sightings-faa-newark/31614151/).
Jerry Zegart, a drone hobbyist in Kentucky, told WKYT-TV that bad actors are ruining the pastime for responsible owners. “There’s still people out there doing stupid things, and as long as you got people out there doing stupid things, it requires more regulation,” he said. “It’s as simple as that.”
The new regulations come just over a week after a drone flying illegally over the National Mall in Washington, D.C., crashed](http://ibtimes.com/drone-crashes-near-white-house-washington-monument-criminal-citation-issued-against-2135895) near the White House. Police confiscated the drone and issued a criminal citation to a local resident Oct. 9, a U.S. Park Police spokeswoman said.
The crash was the ninth time that an unmanned aircraft was operated this year in the National Mall airspace, which is a “no-drone zone,” according to the FAA. The agency planned to make people more aware that all airspace within 15 miles of Reagan National Airport is restricted.
Regulation of drones varies at the state level. For example, California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed Oct. 3 three pieces of legislation](http://www.ibtimes.com/california-unmanned-aerial-vehicles-gov-jerry-brown-vetoes-law-against-drones-cites-2125873) that would have criminalized civilians’ flying aerial drones over certain public and private spaces, according to a Los Angeles Times report. Unmanned drones flying over wildfires, schools, prisons and jails is a nuisance to firefighters and other official, but not worth the strain that new penalties would pose on the criminal justice system, Brown said.

This simply allows for registration and acknowledgement of Aviation regulations…
That’s a good thing.

Drones are not equipped with transponders that identify the aircraft.
Until these are required, it’s a waste of time and money.
Many also build their own drones.

I’m not aware of any regulations regarding the operation of flying drones in Canada and specifically in Ontario. Does anyone have any idea if there are such restrictions?

I can see the positive potential of using a locally operated flying camera/video to inspect a roof top or access areas of the outside of a house that would otherwise be inaccessible. The other side of the coin is the risk involved to property and life and privacy issues.

I’d be more than happy to read on any real inspection experiences using drones.

Thanks,

It would be great if you go to the top left ( control Panel ) and put in who you are where live .
Thanks Roy

Romm,

You are now!

United States: FAA, Drones And Registration: It’s Coming

Last Updated: December 2 2015
Article by Mark McKinnon, James H. Williams and Mark Dombroff****Dentons (US)

The FAA’s proposed model aircraft registration system has taken a major step forward. The Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC) has delivered its report to the FAA with a wide range of recommendations.
When the proposal was originally announced, virtually nothing was known about what types of aircraft would be registered, who would have to register, and when registration would take place.
Under the proposal in the ARC report, the registration requirement is surprisingly broad.
When the project was announced, it was unclear whether the registration threshold for aircraft would be set based on weight, performance, or a combination of the two.
The ARC report has decided to go with a weight-based approach, and has set the bar much lower than most people expected.
The report recommends that all model aircraft weighing less than 250 grams (8.8 ounces) be subject to registration.
At a little over a half-pound, this obviously will sweep up all but the smallest toys.
Obviously, setting the weight limit this low means that the number of vehicles to register will be enormous.
To deal with the problem, the report recommends a system where the owner, and not the vehicle itself, be given a registration number.
Upon signing up, each owner would be given a certificate of registration with a unique owner registration number. This number would have to be placed on any model aircraft they own.
Children as young as 13 would be eligible to register.
The owner must provide their name and address, with phone number, email address and an aircraft serial number optional.
The operator, i.e., the person flying the aircraft, does not have to register.
The FAA will be the custodian of the information that is collected.
The ARC report also notes that compliance with the new system will only be successful if it is easy for operators to use.
The current aircraft registration system, with its reliance on paper forms with multiple carbon copies, is obviously not up to the task.
The ARC recommends that the FAA’s system be both web- and app-based to make use as streamlined and as easy as possible.
So, how did the Committee reach the conclusion that model aircraft as light as half a pound should be registered? The ARC Report notes that there is a lack of scientific studies of the risks of UAS operation.
It should also be noted that there is not even a large body of “real world” data on model aircraft injuries due to the enviable safety record the hobby enjoys.
The ARC focused primarily on a study done by MITRE dealing with injuries from falling objects, and concluded that at 250 grams, there would be an acceptable risk of injuries from an aircraft falling from 500 ft., taking into account air resistance and terminal velocity.
The ARC report is obviously a very important part of the FAA’s process, but it is not the end.
The FAA has made clear that the final rule will be based not only on the ARC report but also on the 4,000 comments filed in the federal register. The one thing we know for sure is that registration is definitely coming.
The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide to the subject matter. Specialist advice should be sought about your specific circumstances.
