FAA IS NOW ISSUING A DRONE REGISTRATION REFUND
Thanks to an article posted on We Talk UAV, we now know that the FAA is giving you your money back. After a recent court decision, the FAA is issuing a drone registration refund for those who paid the registration fee. If you are a hobbyist drone operator and you didn’t register your UAV, then don’t even worry about this since the FAA recently removed the requirement to register non-commercial drones. When the FAA placed a registration requirement for non-commercial drone operators, the court ruled that the Federal Aviation Administration violated section 336 of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012, which states, “… that the FAA “may not promulgate any rule or regulation regarding a model aircraft.” This basically means that you can now erase your records on the FAA database and get a full UAV registration refund.
