Drones now need to be Registered – US Transport Secretary

U.S. Government has announced that the drones have to be registered with the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Anthony Foxx, US Transportation Secretary has announced the plan today at a press conference in Washington D.C. that the department would be creating a task force comprising on private and public industry-leaders to formulate work of the registration system.

The announcement came after few reported incidents of drones hampering emergency services efforts in fighting fires and near misses between drones and air crafts over the last year. Mr. Foxx said that the agency will be developing and implement the registration plan by the mid of November and before the end of December. He noted that these rules will be enforced after registration and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will identify any operator who breaks these rules. He added a statement: “Registering unmanned aircraft will help build a culture of accountability and responsibility, especially with new users who have no experience operating in the U.S. aviation system. It will help protect public safety in the air and on the ground.”
