Commercial Drones: FAA Part 107 Test Prep
Get prepared for the FAA test to operate a drone. To operate an unmanned aerial vehicle
(UAV) commercially for hire, the new FAA Part 107 regulation now requires the operator
to obtain a Remote Pilot Airman Certificate with a small UAS rating, or be under the
direct supervision of a person who holds such a certificate. A former airline pilot
and current drone instructor will review material to successfully pass the FAA test.
Subjects include the new regulation, airspace classifications, flight restrictions,
aeronautical chart study, airport operations, radio communication, weather, human
factors and more. Sample test questions will also be reviewed. Optional $15 test prep
book available for purchase in class. One hour lunch on your own. Registration deadline
3/26. Deadline for withdraw refund is 3/22.
