FAA Registration

FAA registration is a requirement for all people flying R/C model aircraft outdoor.  

 

According with the AMA and FAA guidelines, members need to list both the AMA number and the Federal registration number on their aircraft.  Also a basic knowledge of flight rules is required and achieved through a simple test.  After you have registered you will have a registration number to put on your aircraft and after the TRUST test you will be able to print a certificate showing you passed.  These are required by law of all recreational model aircraft used outdoors.

Here is a link to the FAA registration process through the AMA:  https://amablog.modelaircraft.org/amagov/2021/05/11/update-to-faa-drone-zone-registration-and-renewal-process/ which provides detailed information on how to register to comply with the laws.

Your aircraft must be marked with your registration, here is a link explaining what to do:  https://amablog.modelaircraft.org/amagov/2019/02/27/faa-registration-renewal-and-marking-your-aircraft/ 

You also need to have completed a basic airman test called TRUST:  https://amablog.modelaircraft.org/amagov/2021/02/24/the-recreational-uas-safety-test-trust-faq/  which is a simple "open book" style test that you cannot fail.
