Drones To Remain Illegal To Operate Within Washington D.C.

No Drones in DCInman News tipped us off to the important piece of information that came out with the latest announcements about drone regulations. It will remain illegal to operate a drone within the thirty mile radius of Ronald Reagan-Washington National Airport, which includes all of Washington D.C.

These rules apply to both hobbyists and professional users, such as real estate professionals who want an aerial photograph of a listing. Violation of this rule can result in a fine and possible jail time. 

For anyone who owns any type of drone, the FAA requires that they register it and display the registration number on the drone itself. Check out our previous coverage for the latest FAA regulations.
