Welcome to the Drone Registration (sUAS) Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Support Site

The Federal Aviation Administration requires drone (sUAS) operators to register, properly mark, and know the safety guidelines before flight.

This site will assist you to register and label your drone, apply for waivers and authorizations, report lost and found drones, and learn more about becoming a drone pilot.

When you fly a drone in the United States, it is your responsibility to understand and abide by the rules. You may be subject to civil and criminal penalties if you meet the criteria to register and do not register your drone, including fines of up to $250,000.
