Not a whole lot has happened yet on the Drone Registration front, however, there are rumors that registration may have a fee associated with it. Sources close to FAA decision makers have said that the FAA is now weighing the possibility of charging a $5 fee for Drone Registration. This would surpass the recommendations of the Drone Registration Task Force, though it would follow Federal Law in charging for such registration service. Stay tuned, the FAA’s decision is sure to be interesting, and will certainly bear watching for anyone associated with Drone Operations.
There are mixed reactions among different parties as to whether registration is a good solution.
In any case, as stated before, we believe that Drone Registration is good thing, provided the registration process involves minimal difficulty for anyone operating a craft weighing more than the recommended 250 grams.
