The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International, Small UAV Coalition and the Academy of Model Aeronautics unveiled the website www.knowbeforeyoufly.com to inform drone operators on how to fly unmanned aerial vehicles with regard to safety, according to the report.

Industry groups will also seek to collaborate with manufacturers to have safety guidelines included in drone packages and plan to circulate safety pamphlets at industry events, the AP said..

In a separate report, CNN said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta suggests further fine-tuning the drone safety education drive in order to keep airways safer.

The FAA and industry groups launched the campaign in a bid to promote safe and responsible drone use, CNN reported.
