This compact but easy-to-follow course is complimented by download resource materials for your additional review and study. FAA has said that preparation for the Part §107 exam should take 20 hours of study. Using this video course and reviewing the study and reference materials this video course can provide the basic framework and resources you need to complete that preparation in half that time, and pass the test. Over 450 students have enrolled in this course so far. Together, we’re building knowledge, which is the foundation of safety.
You should not expect to watch this video course and immediately pass the FAA exam any more than you can watch a James Bond movie and expect to go to work for the CIA. The FAA exam is designed to test understanding, not memorization. The FAA has stated that it should take up to 20 hours of study to gain the knowledge necessary to pass the Remote Pilot Certification (UAG) exam and safely operate a UAV. This video course comprises the first two hours of that study. By focusing your attention on the most important parts this course could help you reduce that time to 10 hours. You can’t ride a bike by reading a book and you can’t learn how to read aeronautical charts or METARS without just doing it more than once. Understanding requires study. We’re here to get you started in the right direction with just the right amount of guidance. The student should download the indicated resources here or through FAA.GOV or purchase hard-copy versions online or at a local flight training center or book store.
The bottom line is that, with over 600 trained, our students report passing the exam with an average grade better than 88%.
