Become a Commercial Drone Pilot
To fly your drone commercially you must pass an FAA written exam and become a certificated Remote Pilot. Commercial UAS pilots fly under a subset of the FAA regulations called Part 107. Any unmanned flights that involve payment or are in furtherance of a business or organization fall under the Part 107 rules. Note that even if you fly for free and donate your services, if the ultimate use is commercial, you fall into the commercial drone pilot category and must have a commercial pilot license (which is formally a “certificate”) to fly unmanned aircraft.
What is the Part 107 Test Like?
The FAA written test for the Remote Pilot certificate contains sixty multiple choice questions. It is conducted on computer at an FAA authorized testing center. You are given two hours to complete the exam. The test covers a wide variety of aeronautical topics including aerodynamics, aeronautical decision making, risk management, the national airspace system, sectional charts, airport operations, weather theory, weather charts, emergency procedures, and (of course) the Federal Aviation Regulations covered in Part 107.
Where Do I Take the FAA Remote Pilot Test?
The Part 107 test is taken at an authorized testing center. There are hundreds of them around the country so it is likely that one may be close to you. The tests are conducted by two companies: CATS and PSI Lasergrade. When you are ready to schedule your exam, call both companies, provide your zip code, and they will tell you the closest location. Schedule it over the phone with your credit card. The cost for the FAA exam is $150. You may call CATS at 800-947-4228. Call PSI Lasergrade at 800-211-2754.
