We’ve helped more than 10,000 students pass their Aeronautical Knowledge Test to get their FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate. And in that time, we’ve learned a lot about what topics our students struggle with 🙂 This may come as no surprise to those of you who have already started studying, but the three areas our students are challenged by most are: • Effects of Weather (Density Altitude, Thunderstorms, Temperature Inversion, etc.) • Weather Reports (METAR and TAF reports) • Reading Sectional Charts (Airspace, Latitude / Longitude, etc.) Taking a look through our database of nearly 350 practice questions, below are the 11 that jump out and can hopefully give you an idea as to the kind of trickery the FAA has up their sleeve.
Many questions reference Figures that you’ll need to look up in the FAA’s testing supplement to properly answer the question.
. 1. Which thunderstorm lifecycle stage is mostly characterized by downdrafts? A) Cumulus B) Dissipating C) Mature The correct answer is Dissipating. There’s a LOT of information in the Effects of Weather on Small UAS lecture. Make sure you go through this lecture one more time if you’re missing any rote memorization questions like this. Wind shear, density altitude, temperature inversion, the different types of fog…these are all concepts you can be tested on.
2. An aircraft announces, “left downwind for runway one six”. This means that the aircraft is on a heading of: A) 80 degrees B) 160 degrees C) 340 degrees This question tests your understanding of runway orientation and normal aircraft traffic patterns. On Runway 16, aircraft will be taking off and landing toward 160 degrees.
If an aircraft is left downwind of the runway, it means they’re flying parallel to the runway, in the opposite, downwind direction (the runway is to the pilot’s left, hence “left downwind”). So the opposite heading (or 180 degrees from) 160 degrees is 340 degrees. It can be helpful to sketch this type of question out on a separate sheet of paper. Imagine that the runway in the illustration below is 16 instead of 36, and sketch out the compass orientation to help you answer the question.
3. While monitoring the Cooperstown CTAF you hear an aircraft announce that they are midfield left downwind to RWY 13. Where would the aircraft be relative to the runway? A) The aircraft is East. B) The aircraft is South. C) The aircraft is West.
Similar to the question above, the trick is to know that “left downwind” means the aircraft is flying parallel to the runway, where the runway is to the “left” of the pilot, and the aircraft is flying opposite (or 180 degrees) from the Runway 13 heading of 130 degrees.
Again, if you’re having trouble with compass orientation, it can be really helpful to sketch this one out on a blank sheet of paper. Make sure to review the Airport Operations lecture! 4. (Refer to Figure 25, area 4.) The floor of Class B airspace overlying Hicks Airport (T67) northwest of Fort Worth Meacham International airport (FTW) is A) 2,000 ft.
MSL B) 3,200 ft. MSL C) 4,000 ft. MSL This is one of the most complicated Sectional Chart excerpts you’ll encounter. It’s crowded and difficult to interpret. Take your time to first identify where Hicks Airport (T67) is located. You’ll then want to look for the fraction 110/40 that indicates the ceiling and floor of Class B airspace in that part of the chart.
Each section that’s enclosed by the blue solid line has a different ceiling and floor, so scan your eyes inside of the closed space that Hicks Airport sits in. The 110/40 means that in that part of the chart, the ceiling of the Class B airspace is 11,000 ft. MSL, and the floor is 4,000 ft.
MSL. 5. (Refer to Figure 20, area 1.) You’re hired to inspect a group of structures that are under construction 9 statute miles (SM) south of Norfolk Intl airport. What’s the highest you’re allowed to fly without needing to ask for additional FAA permission?
A) 470 ft. MSL B) 853 ft. AGL C) 1,200 ft. MSL While the Part 107 regulations state a maximum altitude of 400 ft. AGL, you’re allowed to fly higher than that as long as you’re within 400 ft. of a tower / obstruction. You’re even allowed to fly up to 400 ft. over the topmost part of that tower. In this case, the height of the high-intensity lighted group of structures under construction 9 statute miles (SM) south of Norfolk Intl airport is 453 ft.
AGL. If you’re flying “as high as allowed under Part 107,” you’d be flying 453 ft. AGL + 400 ft., or 853 ft. AGL. 6. (Refer to Figure 80.) What minimum elevation should a manned aircraft pilot fly to clear all obstacles in the quadrant surrounding Montrose Rgnl (MTJ)? A) 5,759 ft. MSL B) 10,900 ft. MSL C) 11,700 ft. MSL After locating Montrose Rgnl (MTJ) airport, you need to look around it to identify the quadrant that it’s in.
The airport info text spans two quadrants, but the airport icon is in the top right quadrant. Then, look for the Maximum Elevation Figure (MEF) in that quadrant. It’s a big number 11, and a little number 7.
The large number represents thousands of feet MSL. The small number represents hundreds of feet MSL. So that’s where we are getting 11,700 ft. MSL Remember that the MEF is the minimum altitude that you can fly in a given quadrangle and still be able to clear all obstacles in that quadrangle, including terrain and obstructions. The maximum elevation is rounded up and then another 100 ft. is added. 7. (Refer to Figure 76) What’s the minimum altitude / lowest elevation of the area depicted by the blue line labeled V71?
A) 700 ft. AGL B) 1,200 ft. AGL C) 3,500 ft. AGL The blue lines are Victor Airways. On a Sectional Chart, these show up as thick, faded blue lines that run between either two VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) stations, or a VOR and a VOR intersection.
Victor Airways are identified by a number, similar to an interstate highway. Victor Airways are always designated as Class E airspace and extend from a base of 1,200 ft.
AGL up to 18,000 ft. MSL. That’s why the minimum altitude / lowest elevation as asked in this question will be 1,200 ft. AGL. 8. (Refer to Figure 76.) What is the CTAF frequency at Pierre Rgnl airport (PIR)? A) 119.025 B) 122.7 C) 122.95 After locating the Pierre Rgnl airport (PIR) icon on the chart, look for the airport information text next to the icon. Remember that in the testing supplement legend, you’re actually being told exactly where a lot of information is on the Sectional Chart.
In this case, if we want to find the CTAF frequency, we can consult the legend: The CTAF frequency is always going to be to the left of the circle C icon. In the legend section above, the CTAF frequency is also the CT or Control Tower frequency, and it is 118.3. In this question, the CTAF frequency is 122.7. 9. (Refer to Figure 21) What type military flight operations should a pilot expect along IR644 in the Devil’s Lake West MOA?
A) IFR training flights above 1,500 feet AGL at speeds in excess of 250 knots. B) VFR training flights above 1,500 feet AGL at speeds less than 250 knots. C) Instrument training flights below 1,500 feet AGL at speeds in excess of 150 knots. A Military Training Route (MTR) is used by the military for conducting low-altitude, high-speed flight training. Typically, the routes above 1,500 ft. AGL are flown under instrument flight rules (IFR), and the routes flown under 1,500 ft.
AGL are flown under visual flight rules (VFR). On a sectional chart, MTRs are identified as IFR (IR) and VFR (VR), followed by a number. All of this information is displayed on a straight line, with an arrow. • MTRs with four numbers denote routes flown at 1,500 ft. AGL and below. At such a low altitude, this can present challenges to an unmanned aircraft.
• MTRs with three numbers denote routes flown with at least one segment above 1,500 ft. AGL. 10. (Refer to Figure 69.) What is the ATIS frequency at Corpus Christi Intl airport (CRP), and what is ATIS used for?
A) 119.4, and ATIS is a nongovernment air/ground radio communication station which may provide airport information at public use airports where there’s no tower or FSS B) 126.8, and ATIS is a continuous broadcast of recorded aeronautical information in busier airports C) 122.95, and ATIS is a continuous broadcast of recorded aeronautical information in busier airports ATIS broadcasts, which are typically broadcast over a discrete very high frequency (VHF) radio frequency, contain essential information, such as weather information, active runways, available approaches, NOTAM, and any other information required by the pilots.
Pilots listen to ATIS broadcast information before contacting the local air traffic controller, in order to reduce the controllers’ workload and to prepare their flight. After locating the Corpus Christi Intl airport (CRP) icon on the chart, look for the airport information text next to the icon. Remember that in the testing supplement legend, you’re actually being told exactly where a lot of information is on the Sectional Chart.
In this case, if we want to find the ATIS frequency, we can consult the legend: Looking back at Figure 60, the ATIS frequency at Corpus Christi Intl airport (CRP) is 126.8. 11. (Refer to Figure 20) You’re asked to inspect the high-intensity lighted tower 12 statute miles SE of Lake Drummond. What’s the highest you’re allowed to fly under Part 107 (as long as you operate within 400 ft.
of the tower at all times)? A) 779 ft. MSL B) 1049 ft. MSL C) 1436 ft. AGL While the Part 107 regulations state a maximum altitude of 400 ft. AGL, you’re allowed to fly higher than that as long as you’re within 400 ft. of a tower / obstruction. You’re even allowed to fly up to 400 ft. over the topmost part of that tower. In this case, the high-intensity lighted tower 12 statute miles (SM) southeast (SE) of Lake Drummond is 1,036 ft. AGL. If you’re flying “as high as allowed under Part 107,” you’d be flying 1,036 ft.
AGL + 400 ft., or 1,436 ft. AGL. 12. (Refer to Figure 26, area 5.) The airspace overlying and surrounding a 5 mile radius from Barnes County Airport (BAC) is A) Class E airspace from the surface to 1,200 feet MSL. B) Class D airspace from the surface to the floor of the overlying Class E airspace. C) Class G airspace from the surface to 700 feet AGL. Barnes County Airport (BAC) sits within a thick, magenta vignette / circle, which indicates Class E airspace starting at 700 ft.
AGL. Up until 700 ft. AGL, it’s Class G uncontrolled airspace. Technically, if you were operating an sUAS close to the airport, you wouldn’t need additional permission / authorization as long as you are flying under 700 ft. AGL. 13. (Refer to Figure 26) Which airport is located at approximately 46.93°N latitude and 98.02°’W longitude?
A) Cooperstown B) Jamestown Regional C) Barnes County There are a few things to remember about latitude and longitude on a sectional chart: • That one degree can be divided into 60 minutes. • That, as you move west or left, away from the prime meridian, the longitudinal degree numbers go up. • That, as you move north, away from the equator, the latitudinal degree numbers go up • That the opposite is true if you’re moving toward the prime meridian or equator.
• That each line of latitude or line of longitude is 30 minutes, or half a degree, from the next one. This is confusing to many students. So if you’re looking a line of longitude that’s 98 degrees…and you move left… • The numbers are going up since you’re moving away from the prime meridian • Each notch to the left is one minute • Therefore the line to the left, or west, of 98 degrees, is 98 degrees and 30 minutes.
This question is a little tricker, because instead of degrees and minutes, we’re getting degrees and decimals. So you have to know how to translate 46.93°N and 98.02°W back into degrees and minutes. Since there are 60 minutes in one degree, the calculation becomes 0.93 x 60, or .02 x 60. So 46.93°N latitude and 98.02°W longitude become 46 degrees, 56 minutes latitude and 98 degrees, 1 minute longitude.
With this logic, you should be able to figure out that 46.93°N latitude and 98.02°W longitude indicates Barnes County Airport. A lot of students struggle with this, so you’re not alone. — Good luck to those of you studying to take your Aeronautical Knowledge Test!

Commercial Drone Operator’s Training: Part 107 Test Preparation Next class Saturday January 19, 2019 8:30AM to 4:00PM Are you interested in using your drone for business?
The commercial drone industry is growing rapidly and so are business opportunities. Aerial photography, roof inspections, tower and crane inspections, site surveys, crop analysis are only a few of the many business opportunities that await you. As with any business you must do your homework and make sure you are in compliance with relevant rules and regulations. Titletown Drones is proud to announce that we have partnered with Jet Air Group, an aviation business headquartered at Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport (KGRB).
offers outstanding training facilities and is also an authorized FAA testing center. Who should attend this training?
• Anyone looking to use a drone for anything other than recreational purposes • Emergency Government: Police, Fire, Rescue and Emergency Government • Land conservationists • GIS specialists • Photographers • Real Estate Agents/Photographers • Construction Contractors • Insurance Adjusters • Roofing Contractors • Utility, Tower Inspectors • Farmers What are the legal requirements to use a drone for business?
In August of 2016, the FAA established 14CFR Part 107, the new rules for small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) which are commonly referred to as drones. Part 107 requires a person operating a drone for commercial purposes to hold a remote pilot airman certificate with a small UAS rating or be under the direct supervision of a person who holds a remote pilot certificate. In order to obtain a remote pilot certification you must pass an aeronautical knowledge test at an FAA approved testing center.
If you don’t have any background in aviation, you may find the testing process overwhelming. In addition, you will be charged $150 for every attempt and if you don’t pass, you don’t get a refund and you must wait two weeks to take it again. Sound confusing? I’m here to help you pass the first time! Can’t I just find what I need online? Sure, there are many online resources available for you to study. Unfortunately the information you will need is not found in one place.
The documents and books you’ll need to study contain hundreds of pages of text and charts. You’ll have to figure out which materials are relevant to the test. The whole process can be overwhelming unless you know what to focus your attention on. Many people are visual learners and get more out of a classroom session. You can spend weeks reading about barometric pressure, aircraft loading, military operation areas, and airspace rules. You’ll drive yourself crazy trying to understand all the symbols on a flight chart but if someone shows you how, it will expedite the learning process.
Many people are too busy to spend weeks conducting research or muddling through online courses. If you want to prepare for and pass the Part 107 but aren’t sure where to start, my training program is exactly what you are looking for.
The information will make sense even if you don’t have a background in aviation. What will I be tested on? If you are taking the exam for the first time, you’ll need a solid foundation of these aviation principles. This is right from the FAA’s website. What will I learn in this course? My program covers the topics that you will find on the FAA’s Remote Pilot (Part 107) written exam including: • Aviation regulations including 14CFR107m 14CFR48 • Local, State and local drones laws (conduct with a drone, privacy, etc.) • Aeronautical Decision Making and Crew Resource Management • Aircraft Loading and Aerodynamics • Airspace and flight operations (How to read and interpret sectional flight charts) • Communications • Aviation Weather Attend this 1 day seminar and you are well on your way to passing the Part 107 exam!
Bonus content • Applying for Waivers and the new LAANC airspace approval system • How to conduct a proper pre-flight inspection (FAA requirement) • Malfunctions and coping with inflight emergencies • Overview of the testing process; what to expect Do you already have a remote pilot certificate but are due for recertification? I just went through the recertification testing process. The recurrent exam had 40 questions while the initial exam had 60 questions. The recurrent test eliminated a couple of topics such as aviation weather and the affects of weather on unmanned aircraft.
As you can see from the chart below, its still a comprehensive exam. It was very heavy on regulations and understanding the rules of airspace. Even if you are going for recertification, it can’t hurt to get a little refresher. I’ll move the weather topics to the end of the day so if you are only preparing for the recertification exam and decide to leave early you can, but you’re welcome to stay. Either way, if you are a Part 107 pilot looking for a refresher, you still get the $50 discount (Coupon code 107PILOT).
What are the instructor’s qualifications? I’m a retired police captain with over 30 years experience in public safety. I am a professional training consultant who has delivered training programs and conference presentations across the US and the UK.

In the midst of new laws and regulations revolving around UAVs, the time has come to take an in-depth look at all of the potential issues new pilots might come across. With the drone industry skyrocketing, it is not at all surprising to see more and more regulations taking place, not only in the US but the rest of the world as well. So, what does it take to become a licensed drone pilot and where to start your FAA Part 107 test prep? Unfortunately, a short answer that covers the entire question does not exist.
Instead, I will take you through the entire process from the first steps (FAA Part 107 training) all the way to your very own FAA drone license. Mind you, the road will be tough and there’s going to be a lot of stuff to learn and get accustomed to (luckily, FAA part 107 practice test is available online and we have a discount for you!). See, let’s see what this FAA Part 107 Study Guide has to offer! Photo taken from : SkyWard.io The process (especially the test) is quite demanding so do not (I cannot stress this enough!!!) take it for granted.
It’s a common mistake, but in the end, I am sure that, with a little effort and motivation, you will succeed and get your very own remote pilot in command certificate that will open the door for many job opportunities.
SLIDE DOWN TO: • • • • • What do I need to do after purchasing a drone? In 2016, due to the amazing popularity of drones, FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) had to come up with certain laws that could regulate small UAVs. There was just so many of them flying around without any concrete rules to guide them. It becomes more and more obvious that those days are long gone. With these new laws and regulations, small UAVs now require registration before having their first flight.
The process is quite simple and is completely doable online, without even getting off the chair you are currently sitting on. What you’ll need to do is visit and follow the on-page instructions to register your drone. Near the end, you’ll come across a screen where you’ll need to pay $5 (registering fee) after which you will be granted your very own registration number.
FAA requires you to print this number and place it on a visible spot on your drone (I slid it on the bottom side of my P4) that can be accessed without using any tools. That’s pretty much it – once you do all of the above, you are ready to fly your drone as much as you’d like… But keep in mind that this procedure works for drone weighing between 0.55 and 55 lbs.
For anything above 55 (trust me, there are plenty of heavier drones out there), the registration procedure is much different. Another thing to keep in mind is that you are only allowed to fly your drone for causal use. For commercial purposes, you will have to get an official license which will take much more time than this online registration procedure. This is due to a specialized test that you will have to pass in order to get your commercial drone pilot license.
More on that right down below! Do I need FAA Drone License and how much does it cost? If you plan on piloting your drone for commercial purposes, then the answer is yes – you do need a remote pilot certificate AKA commercial drone pilot license. It’s a standardized exam that will test your knowledge about drones as well as everything regarding them. Don’t think of it as a formal thingy because you will be shaken to reality by a cold hard slap worth $150. Yup, Part 107 test will cost you roughly $150, that is if you pass it from the very first try.
If you underestimate its difficulty and come unprepared (and trust me, I’ve been there on that side of the story as well), you will fail and be forced into paying $150 again to retake the test.
In addition to extra cost, you will also have to make a 2-week pause before being able to take it again. How to get a drone license and become a drone pilot? In order to get the FAA drone license, you will need to take a specialized test that’s held all over the States.
More precisely, the test you will have to take is called Part 107 Knowledge test and it’s available in close to 700 locations (696 to be more precise).
The registration can be done via phone (you can simply call your closest testing center and arrange all the details such as date and payments) but you will still have to take the actual test in person at one of those locations.
Before taking the actual test, please consider taking one of Drone test prep online courses. The task at hand might seem like an easy one at first, but if you start doing some research on this topic you will find out the test is rather difficult. I know more than a few people that had low expectations and studied during the last night before taking the test.
Needless to say, they failed and were shocked at the difficulty of certain questions. If you want to make the task easier, you can always go to one of those FAA Part 107 Practice Test preparation courses online. These Part 107 test study guides are providing their students with unique, one-on-one learning scheme where everyone can get Part 107 training tailored specially to their own needs. Part 107 prep tests are included within courses such as (Use DRONESGLOBE50 for $50 OFF).
They offer great amount of valuable information including quizzes, videos, documents, infographics and final exams that will thoroughly assess your knowledge across all subjects that will be in the test. So far, their students have a high passing rate so it’s definitely worth a shot! There are other online prep courses as well. Some of them are even more thorough than but they cost much more.
There are cheaper ones as well, but they’re either partial (they focus on one or just a few topics that’ll be in the test) or meant for people with a history with flying unmanned aircrafts. That’s why, if you want to get your drone license and become a drone pilot, I would say it is a must to sign up for one of these online courses. Without them, I doubt you will stand a chance at the test – it’s just too damn difficult, mark my words! What is a FAA Part 107 Test? For those of you who did not realize by now : Part 107 is a specialized test made by the Federal Aviation Agency.
The goal of this test is to ensure commercial drone pilots know their way not only with piloting drones but with all other relevant in-flight information as well. Additionally, this test also wants to make all new commercial drone pilots prepared in cases of emergency where quick actions and sheer knowledge could prevent injuries to pilots or those surrounding them. Ideally, FAA aims to drastically improve safety in commercial drone flights with eyes set onto the future where drones will take up even bigger part of our lives than they are today.
Before taking the actual test, please consider purchasing one of FAA Part 107 test prep courses available online. It will drastically increase your chances for passing. If you want to save some money, we have a $50 OFF coupon (DRONESGLOBE50)for .
How to prepare for the FAA Part 107 test? A proper drone test preparation is the key to successfully passing the test. I know for a fact that many people greatly underestimate it and end up failing miserably.
In fact, 2 of my close friends have had this happen to them. They were foolish enough to think the FAA would make an easy (I believe “formal-only” is the term they often used before taking it for the first time) test that wouldn’t require any (or little) studying.
Those extra $150 I already told you about really taught them a valuable lesson. So, if you do not want to be like them, I would suggest you take up one of those online Part 107 preparation courses. All of them will set you back for relatively high sums of money so it’s important to choose which one to go with. If you ask me… and you should definitely ask me since I’m sort of an expert when it comes to drone (I’m not trying to brag here but I’m one of the first people that gained remote pilot certificate), is an excellent choice.
It’s not that expensive yet it covers all important topics that will make their way into the test. My favourite drone test prep course, definitely. Ideally, what you should look for when searching an online course are video lessons, Part 107 questions (there are plenty of those available, I can assure you), one-on-one studying scheme (if necessary) and even trial tests that will assess your current level of knowledge. Also, keep in mind that you should look for a complete preparation course that touches each and every one of the below stated areas that will be included in the Part 107 test.
As you can see, regulations are the focal point of this test and as such, they should be thoroughly examined. With 60 questions in total, approximately 10 to 15 will be revolving around various FAA regulations.
Considering the fact that you need to score at least 70% (equivalent to 42 questions), it’s safe to assume you’ll most certainly fail if you don’t invest a lot of time and effort into studying small UAV regulations that have been made by the FAA.
I’m sure you now understand that I wasn’t scaring you for nothing – Part 107 Knowledge Test is indeed very thorough and demanding. It’s not meant to be considered as a mere formality. Quite the contrary actually, it’s meant to test your total knowledge about drones and everything else regarding them. But, considering the sheer amount of jobs you could land after getting your FAA pilot license, a difficult test is just a small bump on your road to success!
Are there any FAA Part 107 study guides available online? As I have already mentioned a couple of times throughout this article, I believe Drone Launch Academy is one of the best FAA Part 107 practice test guides out there. Not only does it provide video courses in Regulations, Radio Communications, Airspace and more, but they also put you up against demanding quizzes with actual questions from the Part 107 test.
Combine that with the excellent passing statistics from their students and you’ll begin to understand why I’m praising them so much. Partially, I’m doing it because they’ve helped me with my test preparation and partially because I truly believe they offer best value for money out of the bunch. So, if you’re looking for a complete prep guide, you can’t go wrong by choosing them! There’s also a money back guarantee on Drone Launch Academy saying you will get your money back if you don’t pass a Part 107 test after taking their preparation course.
Sounds cool, right? You have nothing to lose! What does the Part 107 test look like? In the next couple of lines, I will give you some insights about the actual Part 107 Knowledge Test. Rest assured that this is not classified information and it is widely available on the internet. I am just gathering it here so you have everything at the tip of your fingers.
With that being said, first let’s take a look at the complete list of topics which are going to be included among the Part 107 questions: • Regulations Mostly FAA regulations revolving around operating small unmanned aircraft. • Flight restrictions Including airspace classifications and operating requirements. • Weather How do certain weather conditions affect your ability to operate a small unmanned aircraft. • Loading Represents math behind maximum takeoff weight your drone can safely hold in the air.
• Emergency procedures Various emergency procedures that will minimize the risk of injuries. • FUI Short for Flying Under the Influence. This section will teach you more about dangers of flying UAVs while under the influence of various drugs and alcohol. • Decision making This part will teach you all about making fast-paced decision while operating your UAVs • Maintenance This part revolves around properly maintaining your small unmanned aircraft and doing all safety precautions during preflight inspection procedures.
All Part 107 test questions are highly objective and have multiple-choices. They require you to have complete understanding of each and every single topic listed above if you want to stand a chance. With that in mind, here are a couple of useful advices that will come in handy while taking the test: • Read the instructions carefully!
There will always be a few trick questions that will serve as shaving off extra points from your end result. • Make sure your answers consist of only the latest regulations and guidance publications, otherwise they’ll most likely be incorrect. • Keep your eyes on the clock! Remember, you have 2 hours to complete all 60 questions. It might seem like a lot of time at first, but once you get “into” resolving them you’ll realize how quickly time flies by.
• At some point during the test, you will come across a question that seems to have more than 1 correct answer. Don’t let that fool you! There is only one 100% complete answer and the others might serve as tricks to make you lose points. • If you are not sure about a certain answer, mark it for review (your assistant will explain the review process before the start) and come back to it after you’re done with all others. FAA Part 107 training – Examples of Questions and Answers In this part of our FAA part 107 study guide, I will show you a couple of Part 107 test questions as well as their respective answers.

I thought to myself, “I’m a good test taker, I scored high on my SAT. How hard could this be?” Needless to say I was in for a rude awakening, and promptly failed the test.
Frustrated, I went home and began to study the same material, the same way again. I was the very definition of insanity. My father suggested that I enroll in a drone test prep course and said that I did not need one. But finally age and wisdom won out, and I enrolled in Drone Launch Academy.
So, I signed up and per my personality (impulsive and determined), competed the entire course in 1 day. When I say the entire course, I mean the entire course; videos, documents, quizzes, tests and all! I went from a 58% on my first part 107 test, to an average of 90% or better on all the quizzes and test provided by DLA! But, I am a sceptic at heart. I decided to find other practice tests online and see if I could pass them…and I did with an average of 86%! This morning, I took the part 107 again feeling prepared and confident because of the material covered in this course. I want to say thank you because I passed with an 87%! Thank you so much for providing and excellent training at an affordable price.” Billy Mulligan “Drone Launch Academy helped me go from no prior knowledge about FAA regulations for UAS operations to passing the Part 107 UAS certification exam on my very first attempt!
I enjoyed the content of the course, which provided guided videos, easy-to-understand text, and plenty of practice questions that utilized actual materials from the FAA exam itself. I felt confident after completing the course that I would be able to pass the exam.
The convenience and format of the course was exactly what I was looking for in training and test prep material! Thank you for creating this wonderful resource!” Kristen Suarez Jobs for licensed commercial drone pilots?
Given the fact that the entire drone industry is blooming, it is not surprising at all to see many organizations looking for commercial drone pilots. Such job openings are endless to the point that USA, at the moment, needs to import remote pilots from abroad. So, if you are a teenager (keep in mind that you must be older than 16) looking for an interesting, well-paid career, a middle-aged man ready for a career-change or a senior citizen looking for extra bucks to give your grandchildren… drone piloting might be perfect for you.
As I’ve already stated above, all it takes to get your remote pilot certificate is to pass that Part 107 test. After that, the biggest problem in your life will be choosing a job in certain field. And trust me, there are more implementations of drones in industries than you could ever imagine.
From roof inspection, real estate, agriculture, cinematography and security companies to environmental mapping, filmmaking and many more… It’s quite clear that drones are becoming the next big thing in the world of technology and are definitely here to stay! Final thoughts As you could see for yourself, getting all the necessary things ready and, in the end, getting your drone piloting license seems more complicated than most of you initially thought. Luckily, everyone working for FAA is amazingly kind (and I stand by this 100% since I enjoyed more than few positive meetings with them) and will make sure you understand everything in due time.
When it comes to the test itself, there is no reason to be afraid. It might be thorough and extensive but with a lot of studying and repetition, I’m sure you will do just fine! I just took my 107 test on the 12th. I think they have changed the test. I studied for over two months. Bought the books, had the app, hours of YouTube and lots of study guides.
I saw several lists of percentages of types of questions. What I had was nothing like that. My guess was about 50% of the test was sectional charts. Several questions about things I had heard never read or heard of. Like a special test you take when you feel tired to tell you if you should fly and others. I did pass the test with a 77%. I guessed at many questions that were about things I never saw in the study guides. And I am a private pilot. I'm just letting you know so it might be worth checking out.
I was really surprised and was wondering if they are making the test harder on purpose. I spoke to several of my friends that have taken the test earlier this year. They were surprised at what I told them. No need to answer and hope this helps if it is true.
