Drone Pilot Part 107 Resources

Drone aviation is potentially a multi-billion dollar industry, and it's just in its infancy. Drone flying has the potential to do great things in our world, and it's fun. AviationBull supports and encourages responsible and professional drone flying.

This page aims to compile useful study/reference resources needed by a commercial drone pilot flying sUAS under the FAA's Part 107 rule for Remote Pilots. It should help aspiring Remote Pilots study for the FAA's written knowledge test. This knowledge is also useful for drone pilots who are aren't flying for money.

(This page launched on 25 January, 2017, and it's a work in progress. Bear with us while we build it. If you have suggestions, please let us know!)

First things first: Source Material

  • 14 CFR Part 107, the official FAA Regulation on commercial sUAS operations.
  • AC 107-2, the official FAA "Advisory Circular." Translates a lot of the dry governmental lawyer speak from Part 107 into readable text.
  • FAA-G-8082-22, the official FAA "Remote Pilot Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Study Guide." The FAA's free study guide for the knowledge test that the FAA wrote.

After you've read the source material, a well-known company called ASA makes a test prep app that I highly recommend. It has every question you could possibly see on the test. You can run through each and then take as many practice tests as you want. If you consistently score above a 90% on those, you should feel comfortable paying to take the real thing. Get the ASA Prepware Remote Pilot app on Google Play, or iTunes.
