FAA Mandating That Registration Numbers Be Present On Exteriors Of Small UAVs Written 13 February 2019

Reuters reports that the FAA on Tuesday expressed that “it is requiring small drones to display registration numbers on the exterior to address concerns raised by U.S. security officials and to make it easier to identify owners.” In a notice in the Federal Register that was published on Tuesday, the FAA said that it is mandating the “registration number to be marked on the exterior of the aircraft.” The rules will be effective as of February 23. Regulations proposed by Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao in January “would allow drones to operate over populated areas to help speed their commercial use.”
