FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018

Notice Number: NOTC8078

On October 5, 2018, the President signed the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018. The Act establishes new conditions for recreational use of drones and immediately repeals the Special Rule for Model Aircraft.
The agency is evaluating the impacts of this change in the law and how implementation will proceed. The Reauthorization Act cannot be fully implemented immediately, please continue to follow all current policies and guidance with respect to recreational use of drones:
• Fly for hobby or recreation only
• Register your model aircraft
• Fly within visual line-of-sight
• Follow community-based safety guidelines and fly
within the programming of a nationwide community-
based organization
• Fly a drone under 55 lbs. unless certified by a community-
based organization
• Never fly near other aircraft
• Never fly near emergency response efforts

Updated direction and guidance will be provided as the FAA implements this new legislation.
This notice is being sent to you because you selected "sUAS - Small Umanned Aircraft System" in your preferences on FAASafety.gov.
