How to Register Your Drone with the FAA

*** see notes for new information as of May 2021

In this video, we’ll walk through how to register your drone with the FAA for $5 and what to do if you’re registering recreationally vs. commercially, what to do if you’re registering a drone on behalf of your company, and more.

*** From Kevin at the FAA โ€””The FAA DroneZone portal has been updated to incorporate Remote ID information. The update requires a registrant to indicate if their drone is Remote ID equipped or not. Currently, there are NO drones that are equipped with Remote ID. Although there are blogs and other sources which may claim differently, the FAA has not approved any Means of Compliance (MOC) for Remote ID at this time. If a registrant selects ‘Yes’ to the Remote ID equipped question, they will be required to enter additional information, including a serial number. The serial number needed is NOT the drone’s serial number, rather, it’s the Remote ID serial number (which doesn’t exist). Entering the drone’s serial number will not be accepted and not allow the drone to be registered.” ***
