What you should know about flying

Want to Fly? You’ll Now Have to Register First

What you should know about flying before flying your drone. Follow regulations from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Anyone who wants to fly a UAS will have to register it first.

Here is what you will need to know:

  • Registration begins on December 21, 2015. The fee is $5 but the FAA is waiving it for the first 30 days, which means you will have until almost the end of January before you have to pay.
  • Failure to register your drone could result in criminal penalties up to $250,000 and three years in prison (though that’s pretty harsh and we hope it wouldn’t come to that).
  • If you have operated a UAS prior to December 21, then you have until February 19, 2016 to register. If you get one after the 21st, you must register before your first flight.
  • Registration applies to UAS “weighing more than 0.55 pounds (250 grams) and less than 55 pounds (approx. 25 kilograms).”
  • You must provide your name, home address, and e-mail address. Upon registration, you will be provided a unique identification number, which must clearly be marked on the aircraft. Fortunately, you only have to register once and the ID number will apply to all your aircraft.
  • Registration is valid for three years and you must be at least 13 years old.

Why Yellow Rump?

Yellow-rumped Warblers are impressive in the sheer numbers with which they flood the continent each fall. Shrubs and trees fill with the streaky brown-and-yellow birds and their distinctive, sharp chips. Though the color palette is subdued all winter, you owe it to yourself to seek these birds out on their spring migration or on their breeding grounds. Spring molt brings a transformation, leaving them a dazzling mix of bright yellow, charcoal gray and black, and bold white.

Tioga, North Dakota is already known as the “Oil Capitol of North Dakota.” But City Leaders are also hoping, it can be called the Drone Capitol of North Dakota.

Today the city kicked off its two day Drone Camp for kids. 75 students came from all across North Dakota and some even came from Montana. The camp is free for students between grades nine through 12.

Today students saw drone demonstrations, listened to speakers and watched films about what drones are used for. The city partnered up with Tioga High School for this event. While the kids learned about drones, the parents participated in activities downtown such as golf, feature films, and street dances.

“While other communities might be interested in agriculture or oil. Tioga is trying to move forward and be interested in the 21st century and teaching those kids the skills that they need make it into the 21st Century as successful adults,” said Dennis Lindahl, Tioga Drone Camp.

Tomorrow, students will be able to fly the drones and will received their own personal set.

NORWALK – NORWALK – Engineering campers to learn about drone technology at UNH. High school students came together at the University of New Haven Tuesday to learn how to build the next generation of drones.

Students from Fairfield, New Canaan, Woodbridge and Trumbull used the latest 3D design software that Sikorsky and Boeing use in their aircraft.

The students are part of the TEAM Engineering UNH camp.

Over the course of two weeks, the students are put into teams to give them an authentic experience of the collaborative engineering process used in the workforce. As a team, they are introduced to the design and manufacturing of complex systems.

“All technology and all the future is just problems waiting to be solved,” said Foran High School sophomore and camp team member Sam Steignbigel.
