Be aware your name and address will be publicly available.Well, I couldn't wait for the big day to register my aircraft on December 21, 2015.
It is December 21, 2015, is it not?
Evidently, the FAA will go on line "sometime" today with this process. Our govenrment at its best. "Just need a cup of coffee and then I'll get to this..."
Interesting they state "never fly over stadiums" which isn't a regulation nor a recommendation the FAA has ever stated before.For U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and certain non-citizen U.S. corporations, this document constitutes a Certificate of Registration. For all others, this document represents a recognition of ownership.
For all holders, for all operations other than as a model aircraft under sec. 336 of Pub. L. 112-95, additional safety authority from FAA and economic authority from DOT may be required.
Safety guidelines for flying your unmanned aircraft:
- Fly below 400 feet
- Never fly near other aircraft
- Keep your UAS within visual line of sight
- Keep away from emergency responders
- Never fly over stadiums, sports events or groups of people
- Never fly under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Never fly within 5 miles of an airport without first contacting air traffic control and airport authorities.
I've been working at my real job...is there a link now to register?The following are the contents of the Certificate issued once you complete the registration process:

This is what I can find Alf.What is the procedure for an overseas tourist visiting the states with a drone. Would he need to apply for a temporary registration number.
I don't think they are asking for drone info are they?I had wrote a response to this but realized I was wrong.. but your only defense against a stolen registration number would be that the serial number would not match up to the offending drone.
The registration number will be posted on the website, and the FAA will have your serial number to identify your UAS, and yes, your serial number, type aircraft,name, address and email will be posted.I don't think they are asking for drone info are they?
It's basically registering hobby drone owners not drones.
