    Important FAA Update

    Greetings fellow pilots! We wanted to make sure you were all aware of the recent changes made by the FAA. Please read the article below as it pertains to all drone pilots in our community.

    This article can be found at https://www.faa.gov/news/updates/?newsId=93045
    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has posted a rule in the Federal Register requiring small drone owners to display the FAA-issued registration number on an outside surface of the aircraft. Owners and operators may no longer place or write registration numbers in an interior compartment. The rule is effective on February 25. The markings must be in place for any flight after that date.

    When the FAA first required registration of small drones in 2015, the agency mandated that the registration marking be readily accessible and maintained in readable condition. The rule granted some flexibility by permitting the marking to be placed in an enclosed compartment, such as a battery case, if it could be accessed without the use of tools.

    Subsequently, law enforcement officials and the FAA’s interagency security partners have expressed concerns about the risk a concealed explosive device might pose to first responders upon opening a compartment to find a drone’s registration number. The FAA believes this action will enhance safety and security by allowing a person to view the unique identifier directly without handling the drone.

    This interim final rule does not change the original acceptable methods of external marking, nor does it specify a particular external surface on which the registration number must be placed. The requirement is that it can be seen upon visual inspection of the aircraft’s exterior.

    The FAA has issued this requirement as an Interim Final Rule—a rule that takes effect while also inviting public comment. The FAA issues interim final rules when delaying implementation of the rule would be impractical, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. In this case, the agency has determined the importance of mitigating the risk to first responders outweighs the minimal inconvenience this change may impose on small drone owners, and justifies implementation without a prior public comment period.

    The FAA will consider comments from the public on this Interim Final Rule, and will then review any submissions to determine if the provisions of the ultimate Final Rule should be changed. The 30-day comment period will end on March 15, 2019. To submit comments, go to http://www.regulations.gov and search for “RIN 2120-AL32.”

    Doesn't affect me, I don't fly "drones". I fly helicopters, airplanes and quads (multirotors).

    I will to strictly ground pounder on this site before I put a number on the outside of my aircraft. Next, they will need tail numbers... Or be required to put the numbers they give on the tail... More rules that I refuse to follow because they are impractical.

    Its just a ploy. Its some kockameme story. Like really, how many "drones " have been found carrying explosives? Oh and not to mention explosives in a small compartment. That little of an explosive won't no you, maybe seriously injured you but that's about it. At least you get to go home at the end of the day.

    If someone was.flying a "drone" to cause massive injury they would be strapping large amount to a frame. Like the volume of a battery. You wouldn't need to be looking inside the aircraft, its going to be exposed.

    Just some winny cry baby leftist cop crying because he might be in harms way. Dude that's your job, your a crime fighter. If You don't want to die at work then get a different job. Sorry about the rant. Yes it bothers me to no end that the AMA just handed over our hobby to the Feds.
