The Federal Aviation Administration is responsible for managing the licensure of pilots including those flying drones also referred to as small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS). For civilian operations in the United States, the term sUAS is defined as a system consisting of an unmanned aircraft or unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) weighing less than 55 lbs., and equipment necessary for the safe and efficient operation of that aircraft.
To fly an sUAS for commercial purposes, you must first obtain a certificate from the FAA. This study guide contains sample questions to help you prepare for the FAA Drone Part 107 Exam. These questions cover topics including aeronautical charts, regulations, operating requirements, and procedures for safely flying drones. The questions were prepared by sUAS pilots who have passed the exam and have experience flying sUAS for commercial projects.
