Make sure the Drone Company you hire after Sept 16th, 2023, is flying with Drones that are Remote ID compliant, Remote ID is now required after Sept 16. This is the new ruling, and fines and possibly legal actions will occur if the rules are not met.
Drones are fundamentally changing aviation, and the FAA is committed to working towards fully integrating drones into the National Airspace System (NAS). Beginning September 16, 2023, all drone pilots who are required to register their UAS must operate in accordance with the rule on Remote ID. Safety and security are top priorities for the FAA and Remote ID for drones is crucial to our integration efforts.
What is it? Remote ID is the ability of a drone in flight to provide identification and location information that can be received by other parties through a broadcast signal.
Why do we need it? Remote ID lays the foundation of the safety and security groundwork needed for more complex drone operations. Remote ID also helps the FAA, law enforcement, and other federal agencies locate the control station when a drone appears to be flying in an unsafe manner or where it is not allowed to fly.
Older drones must not be flown until they have added on a transmitter device for the remote id. Most Drones made before Jan 2022 are not compliant.
