The FAA is launching its 12 Days of Drones campaign to educate people about the rules, regulations and best practices of operating a drone. This December, the agency will share important drone-safety information and resources that will help future pilots stay up to date with the latest rules. All of the campaign’s safety messages will be posted on the FAA’s DroneZone Twitter and Facebook accounts throughout the month.
