Back in October, the FAA announced that drone registration is likely in the near future. Today, Michael Huerta, the FAA administrator overseeing the task force in charge of suggesting guidelines for the process, said that owners of drones should wait until final details emerge about the upcoming drone registration system before paying outside firms to assist with the task.
One company is already charging $25 to assist drone operators with registration. The FAA suggested that the drone registration process will be simple and easy to complete. The task force is scheduled to deliver their recommendations in the next few days.
The FAA recommends that drone visit FAA.gov for official updates on the unmanned aircraft registry.
