Remote ID Enforcement Extension, Advanced Preflight After Maintenance, Preventing Illegal Air Charte

FAA Extends Remote ID Enforcement Date Six Months

Drone pilots who are unable to comply with the broadcast requirement of the Remote ID Rule at www.ecfr.gov/current/title-14/part-89will now have until March 16, 2024, to equip their aircraft (see www.federalregister.gov/d/2023-20074). After that date, operators could face fines and suspension or revocation of pilot certificates.

In making this decision, the FAA recognizes the unanticipated issues that some operators are experiencing finding some remote identification broadcast modules.

Drone pilots can meet this deadline by purchasing a standard Remote ID equipped drone from a manufacturer or purchasing a Remote ID broadcast module which can be affixed to existing drones that do not have Remote ID equipment.

Remote ID acts like a digital license plate and will help the FAA, law enforcement, and other federal agencies find the control station when a drone appears to be flying in an unsafe manner or where it is not allowed to fly. Learn more at www.faa.gov/uas/getting_started/remote_id.


Advanced Preflight After Maintenance

The General Aviation Joint Safety Committee (GAJSC) and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) have determined that a significant number of general aviation fatalities could be avoided if pilots were to conduct more thorough preflight inspections of aircraft that have just been returned to service. In-flight emergencies have been the direct result of maintenance personnel who have serviced or installed systems incorrectly.

Do You Want A Ride?

Two situations that commonly lead to illegal air charter operations are the sharing of flight expenses and the improper use of a dry lease. A common misconception is that pilots who hold commercial or ATP certificates can fly unlimited operations for compensation or hire; however, they are exercising their private pilot privileges under 14 CFR section 61.113 when sharing costs with passengers.
