Want to earn the Remote Pilot Certification to legally use your drone commercially?

You'll need to pass the FAA Remote Pilot Certification exam. To prepare for that exam you will need to study the twelve areas the FAA lists in 14 CFR §107.73.

The FAA has provided a list of Airman Certification Standards for teaching and testing FAA-S-ACS-10 - Remote Pilot Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Airman Certification Standards. The Drone Professor's course was built using those standards and the referenced resources.  The ACS is replacing the Practical Test Standards (PLT Codes), providing a more detailed reference system for testing areas.

Some Remote Pilot Certification courses claim to have “Real FAA test questions”. The FAA DOES NOT make test questions public. Why? The FAA wants pilots to learn by UNDERSTANDING, not MEMORIZING. The FAA does provide a SAMPLE exam.  HERE IT IS . The questions are TYPICAL but they are NOT the “real” test questions. The Drone Professor helps you gain an UNDERSTANDING of the study areas. When you understand HOW to answer the sample questions you should succeed on the FAA exam.

There are quite a few courses teaching for the Remote Pilot Certification. Do not restrict yourself to one course, even this course alone. By all means, take advantage of as many study resources, sample questions or flash cards as you can find and afford, and also be sure to review the resources and references.

Knowledge is the foundation of safety, and study is the building block of knowledge.
