FAA: Be Aware of Drone Registration Scams


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is warning drone owners to be wary of offers to help register drones.

According to the FAA, drone owners register their aircraft on the FAA Drone Zone for a fee of $5. However, the agency says there some entities that are mimicking the look of the FAA’s resource, claiming to be approved by the agency and charging extra fees. In reality, the FAA does not regulate these entities, the agency clarifies.

In turn, the FAA is strongly advising owners to avoid registering anywhere but the FAA Drone Zone.

“It’s the only way to make sure your drone is legally registered and that you’ve gotten your money’s worth,” the agency adds.
