US Regulators Will Require Drone Registration
Got a license to fly? Sales of unmanned aerial vehicles are soaring and making federal regulators nervous. So with an eye on safer skies, they will soon demand that drone owners register their devices. This will help enforce basic rules of ownership, like not flying within five miles of an airport or higher than 400 feet. Aiming to build a “culture of accountability” and protect the public, the new system — which will probably not include smaller, toy-like varieties — is set to take off within two months.
