FAA Leniency to End for Remote ID Violators

“Discretionary Enforcement” Goes Away on March 16th The FAA’s policy to exercise discretion in prosecuting those who fall afoul of UAV Remote ID Rule is coming to a close, ending the grace period allotted to the industry. The FAA expected compliance with the rule after September of 2023, but said that it would “consider all factors in determining whether to take enforcement action” given the limited availability of broadcast modules. The regulator had given UAV pilots until March 16th to bring their aircraft into compliance, but now they’ll have to play by big-boy rules. Remote ID requires one of three compliance methods, whether that’s the purchase of a UAV with a factory-equipped ID broadcasting system, a separate broadcaster to retrofit, or to operate in an FAA-Recognized Identification Area.
