Drone club alert! The FAA just updated its guidance on how to become an FAA-recognized, community-based organization for recreational drone flying.
It's already a federal law that recreational drone groups follow mandatory safety guidelines. Organizations are required to develop safety guidelines in coordination with the FAA, and an applicant may tailor them to a particular type of drone aviation.
The FAA Advisory Circular 91-57C, provides a comprehensive list of recommended safety guidelines applicants may consider using in their application. Organizations that meet the legal definition of a community-based organization may apply for FAA recognition through the DroneZone website.
