What You Need to Know

Drones are high-performance aircraft. They’re on their way to becoming as ubiquitous as phones or pets.

FlySafely! is our commitment to promote flight safety and drone etiquette for you and those around you.

Drones range from paper-clip sized featherweights to large airborne machines for mission-critical work.

FlySafely! is a collection of best-practice tips for safe flight day in and day out, including, for our littlest drones, a huge helping of fun.

PREFLIGHT YOUR DRONE

Verify it’s fully charged and the propellers are undamaged. Once you’ve gotten the hang of flying the drone, aim to graciously tread the sky.

HEADS UP!

Be wary of people and objects nearby to prevent any possibility of contact.

PROPER HANDLING

When operating a drone refrain from getting too close while the propellers are turning.

CHECK FOR NO FLY ZONES

Several locations such as airports limit or prohibit drone operation. Be mindful of your surroundings prior to take-off.

KNOW YOUR DRONE

Read the manual to familiarize yourself with its capabilities, including flight time and range. keep your drone in sight at all times.

FLY RESPONSIBLY

Don’t fly under the influence or when distracted or drowsy.

FOLLOW LOCAL RULES & REGULATIONS

Be conscious of where you fly. Know and follow rules and regulations. Respect other people’s property and privacy.

CHECK THE WEATHER

Be aware of wet conditions or the possibility of rain and save a drone’s life.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

It’s no secret: repetition will improve your flight skill. Never give up perfecting the art of flying drones.

Before You Fly

Do you need to register your drone?

If your drone weighs more than 0.55 lbs. (250 g) and less than 55 lbs. (25 kg) you must register it with the Federal Aviation Administration’s Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) registry before you take to the air. Click the link to find out more.

Not so for owners of MOTA’s JETJAT Nano, JETJAT Nano-C and JETJAT Live-W. These barely tip the scales, meaning you can head directly to the beach or the park without worrying about registering your JETJAT drones.

Be aware of your surroundings, the weather, and your drone’s condition. Find out what to be aware of in your environment, how to check your drone before flight, and more.
