Primary and Spare Battery, Fuel Cells, and components of certain Parachute Systems

When you take your drone with you onboard passenger aircraft – whether you use drones for recreation, commercial activities, or as a public aircraft operator, your drone might be a dangerous good!

If you have any questions, please consult your operating manual or contact the manufacturer and airline prior to traveling.
