The FAA Small Unmanned Aircraft System registration service is now live, and Parrot has created a video to help walk users through the online registration process.
Pilots can register here.
The process will take about 5 to 10 minutes to complete. You will need to provide your name, email address, mailing address, and billing credentials for the $5 pilot registration fee. You will not be asked for any specific details about your drone.
Once completed, you’ll receive a Small UAS Certificate of Registration with a 10 character number to be placed on each of your drones prior to next outdoor use. The certificate is valid for 3 years and must be kept on hand at all times when piloting a small UAS outdoors. Either a physical copy or digital image of the certificate is acceptable. Any other information you may need can be found in the following video.
