Why should you get trained and certified?

The future is taking flight! There are tremendous opportunities for growth in employment associated with commercial activities of the UAS. Consumer drones are becoming mainstream while commercial adoption increases rapidly across a range of industries. The number of drones is expected to more than double over the next year to more than 2.4 million units. The fastest growing commercial adopters of aerial data come from the construction, agriculture, and mining industries.

There are still hurdles in terms of safety, privacy, and insurance, still the drone market is showing no signs of slowing down. This substantial growth rate is driven by the consumer market and stems from falling equipment prices, improved technology such as built-in cameras, and the relative ease of piloting. The FAA projects the small model hobbyist UAS fleet to more than double from an estimated 1.1 million vehicles in 2017 to 2.4 million units by 2022. The commercial, small non-model UAS fleet has been set to grow from 110,604 from 2017 to 451,800 in 2022. The number of remote pilots is set to increase from 73,673 in 2017 to 301,000 in 2022. Remote Pilot Certifications are issued in accordance with the FAA’s Part 107 and are used primarily to facilitate non-model sUAS flights for commercial activities. – Source: FAA

Why train with us?

As with any test, study and preparation is key. Even hobby pilots should start thinking about getting Part 107 certification. Drones offer a new aerial perspective opening up exciting possibilities with applications covering various fields and disciplines, including property surveying, construction and engineering, utility inspections, film, journalism, and real estate. An aspiring pilot can only legally make money from flying if they are FAA licensed. Our training can help you achieve passing the Part 107 test.

To fly under Part 107, you need to pass the FAA's drone pilot exam called the Airman Knowledge Test. We offer two options for learning to suit your study needs. Drone Pilot Georgia offers a learning path via online courses available at anytime via our partnership with Drone Pilot Ground School.

What if I'm already licensed?

The FAA requires you to renew your Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate every two years. This requires you to retake the full Part 107 exam every 24 months. In that amount of time, regulations and laws can change. Our curriculum is always up to date to reflect the information you need to pass the exam.

We also offer one on one open area instructor training hours as part of, or separate from our standard curriculum. We also provide training for flight maneuvers helpful to key specific industries, safest flying instructions and best practices for worse case scenarios.

What to expect for the Part 107 Exam

The FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Test is an objective, multiple-choice test. There are 60 questions, with three responses (A, B, and C) per question. Each test question is independent of other questions; therefore, a correct response to one does not depend upon, or influence, the correct response to another. Some questions will require visual references, like airspace maps or charts. The minimum passing score is 70% (meaning, you’ll need to get at least 42 questions right). You’re allowed two hours to complete the test.

The real exam will cover these topics:

  • - Applicable regulations
  • - Airspace
  • - Aviation weather sources
  • - Effects of weather on drone performance
  • - Small unmanned aircraft loading
  • - Emergency procedures
  • - Crew resource management
  • - Radio communication procedures
  • - Physiological effects of drugs and alcohol and piloting
  • - Aeronautical decision-making and judgment
  • - Airport operations
  • - Maintenance and preflight inspection procedures

As you can see, the Part 107 exam is no walk in the park. You will have 120 minutes to answer questions about airspace, charts, weather, and much more. The exam costs $173 to take and it's not refundable. If you don't pass the Part 107 exam on your first try, you will have to pay to take it a second time. Not only that, but the FAA makes you wait 2 weeks to take the test for a second time if you don't pass.
