Unmanned Aircraft (UA) Registration Information
Registration is not required for model aircraft operated solely for hobby or recreational purposes.
Guidelines for responsible hobby and recreational operations are available at https://www.faa.gov/uas/model_aircraft/
Registration is required for all unmanned aircraft (UA) operated for non-hobby or non-recreational purposes.
- Small Unmanned Aircraft (sUA): An unmanned aircraft is considered a new sUA when it has never been registered anywhere, and its maximum takeoff weight is less than 55 pounds.
- Unmanned Aircraft (UA): A new unmanned aircraft is an UA that has not been registered anywhere and its takeoff weight is over 55 Ibs.
Registration is also required for Government UA. All Aircraft owned by agencies, offices or subdivisions of the United States (other than aircraft of the U.S. Armed Forces), the States, the District of Columbia, or a territory or possession of the United States are required to be registered.
