FAA Registration Update

Dear members,

Last month, we shared new information about the FAA’s UAS registration requirement, which Congress has reinstated.

Today, we are writing to let you know that President Trump has signed this bill making UAS registration a federal requirement again, including for AMA members.

For more information and frequently asked questions, please visit our federal registration page.

Thank you,
AMA Government Relations

Q: If I already registered, do I have register again?

A: You will not have to register again since this bill simply reverses the John Taylor case. We will share more as details emerge.

Q: Do I need to register again if I requested a refund and asked to be removed from the registration list?

A: You will need to re-register only if you received FAA confirmation that your request to be removed the database was honored.

Q: I did not request a refund/removal from registration database, will my registration number and expiration date stay the same?

A: Yes, your registration number and expiration date will remain the same unless you requested that the FAA remove your information from the database, and received FAA conformation of this removal.

Lawrence Harville
AMA District VIII
Vice President
