Part 107 Drone (UAV/UAS) Pilot Test Prep Workshop

Part 107 Drone (UAV/UAS) Pilot Test Prep Workshop

This workshop helps prepares students to pass the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Aeronautical Knowledge test. It provides in-depth training on the FAA’s Part 107 non-hobbyist small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) rules and regulations, as well as all other knowledge areas of aviation required by the FAA, to become a certified Part 107 Remote Pilot and to operate a drone commercially in the United States National Airspace System.

This workshop is designed for hobbyist drone pilots, and others working in industry and law enforcement required to fly drones, who are looking to become FAA Part 107 Remote Pilots, so that they can fly drones commercially and safely in the United States National Airspace System. The workshop is in direct alignment with the FAA’s Part 107 remote pilot certification requirements and includes the latest regulation changes.

By the end of the workshop students will be well on their way to being fully prepared to successfully pass the FAA Remote Pilot Aeronautical Knowledge Test.

In addition to in-depth training on the Part 107 FAA rules and regulations, students will be introduced to the various sUAS-related careers paths that become available to them after receiving their FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate
