FAA Registration


If plane weighs .55lbs or more you have to Register it along with your AMA
We’ve received a lot of questions regarding FAA registration requirements and how to renew current registrations. On December 12, 2017, Congress reinstated FAA registration for all unmanned aircraft weighing over .55 lbs (250g). For those that registered before this date, the FAA extended their registration expiration date to December 12, 2020. However, any individual who specifically requested that his or her name be taken off the FAA registration database no longer has an FAA registration number in the system and would need to process as a new registrant.
If you are uncertain whether or not you have a valid FAA registration, you can access your FAA account at https://faadronezone.faa.gov/#/. This site will allow you to view your personal FAA registration number and expiration date.
We strongly advise to avoid registering your model aircraft anywhere but at the official FAA website. If you register under Section 336, the fee is $5.00 for a three year registration and hobbyists receive one identification number for all the aircraft he or she owns. Please be aware of unofficial registration websites that charge exorbitant fees or require separate registration fees for each recreational aircraft.
If you have any questions regarding your FAA registration login, please call the UAS Registration Help Desk at 877-396-4636. Keep in mind, this office is not open during the partial government shutdown. For any other questions or concerns, contact our government affairs team at 765-287-1256 ext 236 or amagov@modelaircraft.org. The latest information can be found at http://www.modelaircraft.org/gov, Model Aviation, and on social media.
