FAA Postpones Remote ID Requirement

FAA Postpones Remote ID Requirement

Per FAA.gov, Drone pilots who are unable to comply with the broadcast requirement of the Remote ID Rule will now have until March 16, 2024, to equip their aircraft. This is not the same as drone tag or a drone label such as Drone Tatts. This is internal or add on modules that broadcast ID information about the drone and pilot. After March 16, operators could face fines and suspension or revocation of pilot certificates. 

In making this decision, the FAA recognizes the unanticipated issues that some operators are experiencing finding some remote identification broadcast modules. 

Drone pilots can meet this deadline by purchasing a standard Remote ID equipped drone from a manufacturer or purchasing a Remote ID broadcast module which can be affixed to existing drones that do not have Remote ID equipment.

Remote ID acts like a digital license plate and will help the FAA, law enforcement, and other federal agencies find the control station when a drone appears to be flying in an unsafe manner or where it is not allowed to fly.
