Drones or UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) come in varieties, shapes and sizes and serve diverse purposes. The responsibility to fly safely applies equally to manned and unmanned aircraft operations. Partnering with several industry associations, the FAA is committed to promoting safe and responsible use of drones and UAS. Read more about drone safety.
Although hobby or recreational flying does not require FAA authorization, everyone should follow safety guidelines. Any other use requires FAA authorization.
Avoid doing anything hazardous to other airplanes or people and property on the ground.
