Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or drones, are popular for recreational and commercial use.  However, there are rules associated with the use of drones, primarily to ensure the safety of the nation's air space.  The Federal Aviation Administration has established rules associated with the operation of drones.

Additionally, the North Carolina Department of Transportation/Division of Aviation can help you understand the state's requirements.

Flying safely is the responsibility of every UAS operator.  Thank you for educating yourself about federal and state requirements, and helping to keep our nation's airspace safe.
