FAA Remote ID - What's coming?

What in fact means this Remote ID and how will improves the flights?

Flying drone with FAA Remote ID - Safety flights


According to the official websites, the FAA Remote Id will be in force very soon.
Because the drones invade more and more the aviation, that’s why the FAA intends to make reality the regulation for the integration of the drones ID. This integration will create a connection between drones with NAS (National Airspace System). The major priorities are safety and security. With the Remote ID drones will be able to fly safely under one operating system.

Lets see what in fact is Remote Id and why FAA wants to integrate it.

What exactly is drone Remote ID?

This means that third parties will be able to receive information (when a UAS is in flight) – the identification. In a time of flight, the drone will be visible for all the responsive authorities – the FAA, the Federal Agencies and the Laws Enforcement. This real-time connection supposes to produce safe and correct flights. Flying in restricted and not allowed areas will be seen in real-time and this will prevent any illegal movements. The idea of this Remote ID connection is to decrease any risky and unsafety drone flights.  

What is the need of Remote ID?

The connection between FAA with a UAS in flight will help the Law Enforcement, the FAA and the Federal Agencies to be in connection with a drone if it is flying in not allowed areas of if it flies in an unsafe manner. 

The development of Remote ID builds on the framework established by the small UAS registration rule (PDF) and the LAANC capability to lay the foundation of an Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management System (UTM) that is scalable to the national airspace.


Notice of Proposed Rule Making:

The Remote Identification proposed rule provides a framework for remote identification of all UAS operating in the airspace of the United States. The rule would facilitate the storage and collection of certain data. This information will be location, identify and altitude. 

What’s next?

The idea if Remote ID is to provide safe routine drone flights. By this connection with the FAA and the Federal security agencies, this will be realized. 

Remote ID Cohort:

The goal of the FAA Remote ID Cohort is to develop the technical requirements applicable to FAA qualified remote ID UAS service suppliers.

What has the FAA done?

The UAS Identification and Tracking Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC), chartered by the FAA in June 2017, submitted its report and recommendations (PDF) to the agency on technologies available to identify and track drones in flight and other associated issues.

In December 2018, the FAA issued a Request for Information (RFI) to establish an industry cohort to explore potential technological solutions for Remote ID.

Why do not fly above the allowed altitude

One of the most important rules for the drone pilots is to fly up to the allowed altitude of 400 feet. Every person who has ever flown a drone knows this rule, and follows it without questioning. But have you ever wondered why you should never fly above 400 feet? We will give you the answer today!
