Report: Proposed NDAA to Reinstate FAA Drone Registration Rule

1 min read

The fiscal 2018 National Defense Authorization Act includes a provision that would restore Federal Aviation Administration rules on the registration of small, model-aircraft-sized drones, FCW reported Friday.

FAA previously implemented an online registration requirement for commercial and recreational drone operators who use unmanned aircraft systems that weigh less than 55 pounds and more than 0.55 pounds in a move to control the increase of UAS usage within the national airspace.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit nullified the agency’s drone registration policy in May, saying the regulation violates the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012.

The 2018 NDAA awaits President Donald Trump’s signature.
