New drone owners to receive regulation updates

As some of the season's most popular Christmas gifts soar through McKinney skies, owners must be mindful of the rules and regulations associated with drones.

The McKinney Public Library System will host a free seminar on drone regulations at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 28,  at the Roy & Helen Hall Memorial Library, 101 E. Hunt Street. The event will be lead by McKinney National Airport Operations Manager Eric Pratt who will discuss the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) guidelines for commercial and recreational drones, including the new registration requirements that go into effect Feb. 19.

No reservations are needed. For more information, contact Helen Talley at 972-547-7305 or visit the city's website.
