Part 107 Test Prep  8-hr. instructor led presentation

Keep up with changing Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements to remain ahead of the curve among commercial drone pilots. Anyone operating a drone for any commercial or business purpose must obtain an FAA remote pilot certification. This highly focused course prepares you for the test to receive this certification.

Beyond drone-specific material, students will gain an understanding of much of the ground-school information covered in the FAA’s knowledge test. Topics covered include regulations relating to small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS); airspace classification, interpretation of sectional navigation charts, operating requirements, and flight restrictions; aviation weather sources and effects; small unmanned aircraft loading and performance; emergency procedures; aeronautical decision-making and crew resource management; radio communication procedures; physiological effects of drugs and alcohol; airport operations; and maintenance and preflight inspection procedures.

The remote pilot knowledge test Unmanned Aircraft – General includes 60 questions and requires a passing score of 70%. The test costs $175, paid separately to the Knowledge Testing Center. With successful completion of the test, you can apply for a remote pilot certificate for FAA Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations part 107. The course fee includes a sectional chart, an FAA test supplement, FAA sample test questions, and eight hours of instruction. Actual FAA testing must be administered at an authorized Knowledge Testing Center and is NOT included in the course fee.

Also,  when you promote the classes, we do want you to gather all the registration information.  We have an email we send out approximately 1 week before the class starts.  It contains the Zoom link and other basic info.  We can send it directly to your registrants, or we can provide it to you to send out yourself.
