Federal Laws For Drone Use In Alaska
You must be a commercial pilot to fly a drone in Alaska. In addition, for work/business purposes, you must follow the FAA’s Part 107 Small UAS Rule. Part 107 includes passing the FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Test to receive a Remote Pilot Certificate.
Alaska allows hobbyists to fly drones. However, the FAA requires you to pass the Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST) to fly drones for pleasure or fun. The FAA also requires you to adhere to the rules for recreational model aircraft. In addition, you will need to pay $5 to register your drone if it weighs in at more than 0.55 lbs (250g). Additional rules apply to altitude and airspace, as well as keeping your drone in line of sight while you fly.
