On September 16, 2023, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will begin requiring drone operators in the United States to broadcast Remote ID information, unless flying in an FAA-recognized identification area1.
Today we’re releasing a simple software update that enables Remote ID for your Skydio drone2, so you can rest assured that you’re compliant when flying our products
Thank you for helping us continue to make our world more creative, productive, and safe. Happy flying!
1An FAA-recognized identification area (FRIA) is a flying area where Remote ID is not required and generally applies to recreational flying.
2Applies to Skydio 2, 2+ and X2E drones when flown with the Skydio Enterprise Controller, Skydio mobile apps (with or without Skydio Controller), or Skydio Beacon/Beacon+ (with or without Skydio mobile apps).
