In 2019 the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) organized "National Drone Safety Awareness Week" which was hosted annually until 2021. This year, we're evolving our approach with ONE Drone Safety Day!

On this site, you will be able to browse all the Drone Safety Day events, sign up to attend, and submit your own event.

Drones are the fastest growing segment of aviation in the United States. As of January 2022, over 860,000 drones have been registered with the FAA, and over 260,000 Remote Pilots have been certified by the FAA. These numbers are projected to continue to grow.

Drone Safety Day is Saturday, June 18, 2022.

The safety message for Drone Safety Day 2022 is "Fly RIGHT"
