WASHINGTON, D.C.- The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is warning that if you are going to fly your drone, you better follow the rules.

According to the FAA, when you fly your drone anywhere in the nation’s airspace, you automatically become part of the U.S. aviation system. Under the law, your drone is an aircraft. So while the rules for drones may be different, you have the responsibility to operate safely, just as a Cessna or 747 pilot does.

The FAA has developed this safety checklist (below) that you, as a pilot, should use whenever you send a drone into the sky.

“We want you to fly safe, fly smart – and have fun,” the FAA claims.
