SkyPan urges new drone owners to register with FAA

SkyPan International, a company that offers innovative aerial robotic systems that serve the construction and real estate industries, urges everyone who received a drone as a holiday gift to do two simple things before operating the drone for the first time: Read the instructions that come in the package, and register the drone online with the FAA, the company said.

New drone owners must register before operating the drone for the first time — that is an FAA rule.

New drone owners, before operating the drone for the first time, should read the instructions that are included in the package.

SkyPan notes that recreational drone operators who do not meet the requirements for model aircraft operators are subject to FAA rules in Part 107. Thus, SkyPan also encourages all operators to carefully read Part 107, to understand its requirements and limitations, and to seek guidance from the FAA if they have any questions.
