I am a 107 certified drone pilot, like you. There are many drone study courses taught by CFIs (Cerfified Flight Instructors) and experienced pilots.  They have good courses, but CFI’s and Part 61 pilots take their drone test online. They don’t see the exam that we do. I teach from YOUR level, in terms YOU understand and relate to, because that’s how I had to learn it.  I know what you need to know about as a drone operator.

I teach understanding. Understanding is the key to knowledge, and knowledge is the foundation of safety.  I’m certified as an instructor for public safety by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and I passed the FAA’s Fundamentals of Instruction as well. I also passed the student pilot Ground School exam.

Because of my unique background, and the way I write my courses, my students are prepared to score better on FAA exams.  Your goal is to understand what you need to know to pass the FAA exam. I will help you achieve that goal. This course represents your good investment toward that goal.

The Federal Aviation Regulations, or FARs, are rules prescribed by the Federal Aviation Administration governing all aviation activities in the United States. The FARs are part of Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations. 14 CFR Part 107.73 section b specifies the knowledge areas that will be required to pass the recurrent FAA exam for Remote Pilots. The exam will contain 40 questions, rather than the 60 questions in the initial certification test. The minimum age is 16 and 1.5 hours will be allowed for completing the test at an authorized testing facility (PRI/CATS). Authorization for the UAG test: Requires NO instructor endorsement or other form of written authorization. Acceptable form of authorization for the UGR test: Remote Pilot Certificate with a Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) rating.

The seven areas of material for the UGR exam are:

(1) Applicable regulations relating to small unmanned aircraft system rating privileges, limitations, and flight operation;
(2) Airspace classification and operating requirements and flight restrictions affecting small unmanned aircraft operation;
(3) Emergency procedures;
(4) Crew resource management;
(5) Aeronautical decision-making and judgment;
(6) Airport operations;
(7) Maintenance and pre-flight inspection procedures.

While this course is designed to prepare Certified Remote Pilots for the FAA Recurrent Certification (UGR) exam, this course is not represented as official FAA Training. The material presented comes from FAA publications. Since you have already earned your certification this course should serve as a review. If you need to dig deeper into a particular area you may be weak on, we would refer you to the Pilot’s Handbook, our original video training course or my Study Guide book (shown below).

If you have the report from when you took your initial certification test, look for the PLT numbers listed. Those codes tell you what you need to study most. You can reference the PLT codes here:

This training course is based on information from the FAA’s Airman Certification Standards, uas_acs-10A (revised 6/18), the Remote Pilot Study Guide and the indicated publicly available resources.

An e-book and printed study guide is available at Amazon.com to augment this training.


Practice quizzes are included in each section and a final exam appears at the end of the course along with the sample UAG exam from the FAA. Exams include references to charts and diagrams published in the FAA Testing Supplement (FAA-CT-8080-2G).  It is assumed that the student will have a purchased or acquired the Test Supplement or downloaded the PDF version for reference.

Student feedback:

  • “I used this course and read the supporting documentation and passed the test. I studied for about 4 days and watched each video at least twice, some more. Great course!!” (Steven)
  • “…let me compliment you for your excellent course for sharing so much practical information for someone “in the know!”  As you mentioned, some of your questions go beyond the typical canned questions used by many other test prep exercises and really demonstrate your thorough yet practical factors to best learn the material.” (Michael)
  • “Tim Trott does a wonderful job of explaining this course and how you should use it.” (Will G.)
  • “Great course to help prepare you for the FAA test! I passed my test on the first try thanks to this course and other material. Thank you again! ” (Steve)
  •  “Great News! I took the test and got a 92. I have been telling all to use your course. It is under priced and worth 5 times the cost. Best deal on the market. Coupled with your e-book it is a shoe-in for a pass. Thanks!!!” (Gary)
  • “I passed the part 107 test on August 30 with a score of 88. Thanks again for a great course!” (Patrick)
  • “…just watched your course twice and scored an 88% on the test. I’ve taken many aviation related courses and seminars, your was presented professionally and had a good cadence.” (Grant)
  • “Comparable courses I’ve seen are running in the $200-$400 range, making your course a tremendous bargain.” (Pat)
  • “I passed the FAA remote airman’s certification on the first try. Honestly I felt like I was over prepared. …Thanks so much for making [this course] available.” (Gary)
  • “Thank you for providing this training. The sheer bulk of information is staggering.” (Tom)
  • I passed on the first try. ” (Richard)

If you would like to devote some extra home study to the questions you missed on the original certification exam, check the PLT codes on your exam report in the list of PLT codes HERE (PDF). The FAA is moving from Pilot Learning codes (PLT) to the new Airman Certification Standards (ACS) codes. More about that HERE (PDF)

If you are a part 61 pilot with a UAG certification you can renew your certificate by taking the online training course at FAAsafety.gov, followed by an exam. If you are not a part 61 pilot you can still take advantage free of the online training course that the FAA provides, but you will not be able to renew your 107 remote pilot certification online. While part 61 pilots are required to take the online course at FAAsafety.gov, part 107 Remote Pilots (UAG) are allowed to take the course but are not required to do so.

Applicants for a part 107 remote pilot certificate who do not hold a part 61 pilot certificate (or part 61 pilot certificate holders who do not meet the requirements of a current flight review or other provisions of 14 CFR part 61.56) may incorporate this training into their self-study curriculum to help prepare for the FAA Unmanned Aircraft General (UAG) Knowledge Test. The course focuses on the knowledge areas of 14 CFR part 107 that are beyond the operational knowledge of parts 61 and 91 (FAA)

The FAA Safety training online course takes about 2 hours to complete. When you complete the Flash portion of the course, you will find a page with related links and reference materials. We recommend taking that online class in addition to the review material provided in our course here.

  • The FAA course uses FLASH media which IOS devices (eg, Ipad, iPhone) and other Apple products cannot display, so you may need to use a PC or Chromebook. Jon Rupprecht is also providing a resource for the Recurrent Pilot Certification. There are other resources that can be found online as well. Make use of any and all available resources in your preparation and training.
