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
