Study the topics of the 14 CFR part 107 test for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS). This course helps you prepare for the certification testing involved to become a licensed pilot of commercial drones.
- Hi, I'm Louisa Winters. Welcome to this test preparation course for the 14CFR part 107 small unmanned aircraft system certification, required by the FAA in order to fly your drone commercially. Some of you may know me as an Adobe and Apple instructor, but in addition to that, I am a private pilot, and a certified advanced ground school instructor for the FAA. I have been flying unmanned aerial systems for a while, and have fallen in love with the technology and its possibilities.
That, together with my love of flying, keeps me busy for much of my time these days. Whether it's flying an airplane or flying a drone, I spend most of my working hours in the sky, and wouldn't have it any other way. In this title, I will start by explaining what major provisions exist in 14 CFR part 107. Then, we will go through all applicable regulations: aircraft registration, operational limitations, operations near airports and aircraft.
Weather, loading and performance, emergency procedures, physiology, medical conditions, and drugs and alcohol. Aeronautical decision making, or ADM, some risk mitigation, and maintenance and preflight procedures, and waivers. Then, we will go through a self-assessment section, in which you can see if you're ready to take the test or not. I am confident that this title will help you get prepared to take this important test. Let's get started.
