If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands of Americans who received a drone this holiday season, it’s important to understand the legal guidelines in place to keep drone operators and those around them safe. The Know Before You Fly campaign, co-founded by AUVSI and the Association of Model Aeronautics (AMA), provides users with the information they need to fly safely and responsibly.

This webinar will outline the restrictions applied to recreational drone use and provide a clear explanation of the FAA’s ongoing exploration into the safe integration of UAS. This interactive webinar will give new and veteran drone enthusiasts the opportunity to ask questions of subject matter experts.

Discussion topics will include:

  • Registering your drone
  • Explanation of FAA requirements
  • Insuring your drone
  • Drone use for recreational versus commercial purposes
  • Where drones can legally be flown

  • Recreational and commercial drone users
  • Anyone interested in operating drones

  • Tom McMahon, AUVSI


  • The Know Before You Fly webinar is a free educational session.
