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 6/12. Deadline for withdraw refund is 6/7.
