Check out the new map that makes finding FAA-Recognized Identification Areas easier

Summer is here! Sunny skies and good weather mean more outdoor activities, like flying your drone. Before you take flight, it’s important to be familiar with all FAA requirements, including Remote ID.

All drones that require registration or that are registered must comply with Remote ID. Remote ID provides drone identification and location information through a broadcast signal while in flight.

One easy way to comply with Remote ID is to fly within a FRIA (FAA-Recognized Identification Area). A FRIA is a location where drones can be flown without Remote ID equipment.

Other ways to comply with Remote ID:

  • Operate a Standard Remote ID Drone, which broadcasts identification and location information about the drone and control station. A Standard Remote ID drone is one that is produced with built-in FAA Remote ID broadcast capabilities.
  • If you don’t have a drone equipped with Standard Remote ID, you can operate a drone with a Remote ID Broadcast Module attached, which broadcasts identification and location information about the drone and its take-off location. The broadcast module can be added to a drone to retrofit it with FAA Remote ID broadcast capabilities. Pilots operating a drone with a Remote ID broadcast module must be able to see their drone at all times during flight.
Three ways to comply with Remote ID

Remote ID helps the FAA, law enforcement, and other federal agencies locate the control station when a drone appears to be flying in an unsafe manner or where it is not allowed to fly.
