14CFR Part 107 FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Test Prep
As of Aug 29, 2016 the FAA requires a formal license in order to fly your drone commercially. The Remote Pilot Certification process will entail a 60 question, multiple choice FAA knowledge test. There is a considerable amount of aeronautical knowledge needed to pass this test, and you may be at a disadvantage if you are not familiar with the FAA tests and information required for manned aviation.
Our industry leading two-day course will help you overcome those hurdles, and provide you with all the tools to pass the Part 107 knowledge test as well as what you need to know to operate safely within the law the day after you pass your test.
In addition to simply covering the test material, you will learn the concepts and supporting information that will help you to consolidate and truly understand the rules, guides and principles from which the unmanned aircraft general aeronautical knowledge test questions were derived. The course material will also cover the administrative process of obtaining your Remote Pilot Certification once you’ve passed the test. With the many so called “study guides” available, you will devote countless hours of your precious time to understand the reasoning and convention behind the manned aviation topics and in many cases you will still lack a true understanding. There is no substitute for having you’re very own subject matter expert in person teaching you the information, concepts and techniques needed to successfully pass the FAA remote pilot knowledge test and feel good about it! Since we started teaching this course in the summer of 2016 we have 100% pass rate.
Scott Strimple leads a team of highly qualified instructors. Scott holds every flight instructor certification from the FAA and has more than 25000 flight hours. He is able to leverage his 40 plus years of operating small unmanned aircraft with his vast knowledge, training and experience from the world of manned flight to provide industry leading training in preparation for taking your test.
Remote Pilot Certification basics
You must be at least 16 years old to qualify for a remote pilot certificate, and you can obtain it in one of two ways:
- You must pass an initial, 60 question aeronautical knowledge test at an FAA-approved knowledge testing center and pass a TSA back ground check.
- If you already have a Part 61 pilot certificate, other than a student pilot certificate, you must have completed a flight review in the previous 24 months then you have the option to take a small UAS online training course provided by the FAA and present your completion certificate to the FAA
The Drone Flight School is NOT an FAA authorized testing facility so if you are not already a licensed pilot with a current flight review, then you will be required to physically attend an authorized FAA knowledge test facility. You will need to make a reservation to take your knowledge test. The sooner you make this reservation and take your test after this course, the greater your odds of success.
See the website at the following address to find a testing facility that works for you and the instructions for making a reservation.
