The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have released a new animated ad campaign for the holiday season.

The 20-second clip was uploaded a week ago and is the first of a series that aims to educate the public about how to fly their drones safely and accordance with the law.

The main message of the clip? “Keep buzzy in view.”

This message is in reference to one FAA regulation that states that drone operators should keep their UAVs ‘in line of sight at all times‘.

The video concludes by encouraging viewers to head to faa.gov/uas to learn more about their new drone. In promoting the release of the new initiative the FAA stated:

“Too many times, we at the FAA hear sad stories about what happens when inexperienced flyers take their drone out for its first flight.”

Given the animation style and tone of the clip (viewable below), it’s fair to assume that it was targeted at kids. That’s what nearly all of the comments on the YouTube clip have said, anyway.
