What CBO Or Community Based Organization Should You Use?
If you’re flying a drone of any size for recreational purposes in the United States, you must select community-based organization guidelines, or CBO guidelines.
Let’s take a look at three Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)-approved CBOs, their guidelines, which one is best for you, and when you need them.
What is a CBO?
First, you may be wondering what a CBO actually is, and that’s a great question.
A CBO, or community-based organization, is a nationwide, non-profit organization that promotes recreational flying.
- They offer community events, seminars, guidance, and mentorship for those interested in getting into the hobby.
- They also offer guidelines on how to operate your drone safely.
And as of the end of 2022, you MUST choose guidelines from an FAA-approved CBO before you fly a drone recreationally, regardless of the size of your drone.
