The popularity of drones, or unmanned aircrafts, is on the rise in the United States. There are many public lands that allow drone use, however, flying in prohibited areas could result in civil and/or criminal penalties.
First, all drone users must follow Federal Aviation Association (FAA) rules regarding registration and operation of recreational unmanned aircrafts. Consumer drones weighing between .55 and 55 pounds are required to be registered with the FAA.
