Those who fly drones and small unmanned aircraft systems (model aircraft) are now statutorily required to register with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). In addition, pilots must also now ensure that their FAA registration number is displayed on an outer surface of any aircraft or drone they own and operate. Registration is inexpensive and easy, and may be done at the link below.
The Federal Aviation Administration has redeveloped their mobile application to provide situational awareness to recreational flyers in knowing whether it is safe to fly their drone or model aircraft in a particular area. The application utilizes interactive maps and GPS technology to alert recreational flyers where they can and cannot fly. The application is free, and is available at the App Store for iOS and the Google Play store for Android.
Our flying field is located behind the shotgun range at the Outer Banks Gun Club in Manns Harbor and consists of a 400-foot grass runway. We usually fly Saturday mornings, Sunday afternoons, and during Daylight Savings Time, Thursday evenings. The site is located on Link Road, 2½ miles southwest of the intersection of US Highways 64 and 264.
