The program is expected to reach the nearly 25.6 million people living in the with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) and will focus on Spanish, the most widely spoken language in the U.S. other than English.

The FAA seeks to remove barriers for this segment of the U.S. population interested in drones. The website will have basic drone safety information for recreational flyers with a selection of existing web pages translated into Spanish.

There are regulatory and requirements for commercial airline pilots to speak, read, and understand English, but no similar LEP requirements apply to recreational drone flyers. The FAA will analyze the results of this outreach effort and may consider additional project phases in other languages in the future.
