Good to know, I'm sure, but as valuable as your contributions are to this thread, you'll note, I was addressing lda6339's post, not yours.

I haven't. I based my claim off of speaking to a neighbor that paramotors in his free time, and he said that you don't need a license or to register with the FFA. He said all you have to do is not fly over what the FAA loosely describes as a populated area

If I have that wrong let me know, but since I don't paramotor, I'm sure you can see why I have no intention of reading pages and pages of FAA regulations.

Is there a penalty for failing to register?

Failure to register an unmanned aircraft may result in regulatory and criminal penalties. The FAA may assess civil penalties up to $27,500. Criminal penalties include fines of up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment for up to three years.

Part 103 is a few paragraphs. There's quite a bit more to it than your neighbor appears to realize. Is he aware of the airspace restrictions he must abide by? It's quite a bit more elaborate than just not flying over populated areas.

You don't need a license to fly an ultralight or a drone recreationally. The rules for flying either are similar. You do have to get an ID number to put on all your drones (same number). The drone itself isn't registered. Flight restrictions for drones are similar to, but less restrictive than paramotors.

Good question. I suspect it's so that when they pull the remnants of it out of a jet engine at the scene of the airliner crash, they'll know who to come looking for.

Could you perhaps highlight what he's missing specifically? Most of this thread is people mentioning all these rules and regulations about airspace but not providing specifics.

He did recommend for you to just read them yourself...

All of the ones I read can be summed up as stay far away from airports and use common sense. The way I understood what he said it sounded like there were many more that I was somehow missing.

Here's a better list of where you can't fly. This would be for UAS (drone) or your friend's ultralight.

https://www.faa.gov/uas/where_to_fly..._restrictions/


Additionally the FAA will publish TFRs (Temporary Flight Restrictions). Usually these are airports where you can't fly anyway but could extend the area into the airspace you fly.
