Are You Ready for Remote ID
Are you ready for new FAA regulations?
The FAA has released a document outlining compliance measures with the Remote ID rule, otherwise known as Part 89, which requires all drones be equipped with new Remote ID recognition and tracking technology in order to further integrate UAVs into the National Airspace System (NAS).
Beginning on September 16, 2023 all pilots who are required to register their UAS must follow the new rule, which requires drones to either have a native Remote ID or be fitted with a Remote ID broadcast module like a portable transmitter. If the drone has a broadcast module, the FAA website says that the drone must be operated within visual line-of-sight.
If your drone is NOT Remote ID compliant or equipped with a Remote ID broadcast module, you may only fly in designated FAA-recognized identification areas (FRIA), sponsored by “community-based organizations (CBOs) or educational institutions,” such as AMA flying fields.
