100. FAA $5 Registration Fee Refund!

As an AMA member operating your model aircraft or drone for recreation, you no longer must be registered with the FAA or have an FAA registration number on your aircraft. For those who are registered and did not receive a refund, you can delete your registration and receive a $5 refund from the FAA by completing an FAA Registration Deletion and Self-Certification Form and mailing to the address on the form. 


Anyone who operates their model aircraft or drone for commercial purposes is still subject to the FAA registration requirements. Although the FAA cannot under the current extension of 336 require recreational operators to have an FAA registration, the FAA encourages voluntary registration by owners of model aircraft or drones. Many expect that the next reauthorization bill will provide explicit directives to the FAA to create a registration system for all UAS.
