Recreational Flyers Toolkit

As the use of drones is becoming increasingly popular for fun recreational and hobbyist flying, it is important to know when and where you can fly while operating unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), as well as how to register your drone. This digital toolkit was created to provide flyers with tips, rules and information for safe operation.

In an effort to promote safe and responsible use of UAS, the FAA encourages recreational flyers to download and print digital art for quick and easy dissemination.
