Know Before You Fly

December 21, 2015

As more and more people are buying drones, it’s important to keep safety numero uno while flying. So we’re supporting Know Before You Fly and reminding users to keep these safety points with them.

    •    Fly Below 400 feet (120m)

    •    Fly within visual line of sight

    •    Avoid flying over groups of people and stadium events

    •    Never fly within 5 miles (8.5km) of an airport without contacting the airport authorities and the airport’s traffic control facility

    •    Avoid flying near other aircraft

    •    Be aware of FAA airspace requirements (or your home country’s airspace authority)

    •    Do not fly under the influence

    •    Keep well away from emergency response efforts such as fires

FAA Registration

For sure by now you’ve heard about the FAA rules for registering your drone if you live in the US. This means that if you own AirDog (or any other drone) you’ll have to register the drone. If you’re visiting the US with your flying pal, you still have to register.

Registration starts today (December 21) and the first 30 days of registration are free, after January 20 there’s a $5 registration fee.

Register here.

Remember to fly according to the rules and regulations set by the country you live in and in those that you visit, breaking laws aren't fun.
