Last Monday DOT’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released its recommendations of its Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Registration Task Force (RTF) Aviation Rulemaking Committee in the midst of its work to finalize new drone regulations. The FAA gave the task to provide some post-public-comment advice. The result for FAA’s consideration contains three key elements for registration:
- Registrants would complete an electronic web or application (app) form;
- FAA should immediately send back an electronic certificate of registration and a personal universal registration number for use on all small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) owned by that registrant; and
- Registrants would mark all applicable drones with the registration number.
