FAA Part 107 Test Preparation (1Day)

Part 107 Knowledge Test Prep Course

 

In August of 2016, the FAA established guidelines for operations of small UASs. This is known as Part 107 and in order to operate a UAS for commercial purposes, you are required to obtain this Remote Pilot Certification.

The FAA is very restrictive when it comes to the definition of “Commercial use”. Even though you many only fly recreationally, if you post a video to YouTube or other services, there is a potential to monetize it, therefore it is considered to be commercial in nature.

The knowledge test is comprised of 60 multiple choice questions. To pass, you must have a score of at least 70%.

Our goal is to help you understand the material, not just memorize it to increase your chances of passing.
