Online / Live FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Test Prep Course

Become an FAA Certified Drone Pilot to Fly for Commercial Use

This online/live 7.5 hour ground school course, originally developed by Mark Donovan for the University of New Hampshire’s Drone Academy, prepares students to pass the FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Aeronautical Knowledge test. It provides in-depth training on the FAA’s Part 107 non-hobbyist small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) rules and regulations, as well as all other knowledge areas of aviation required by the FAA, to become a certified Part 107 Remote Pilot and to operate a drone commercially in the United States National Airspace System.

Next class starts August 16th, 2022. Register below today!

There are many online Part 107 Test Prep courses you can choose from. However, they’re generally taught by watching a series of pre-packaged videos, with no live interaction with an instructor to immediately answer any questions you may have as you attempt to learn the material. At Falcon Imagery we help students prepare for the FAA’s Part 107 Remote Pilot Knowledge test a little differently.

This Live/Online FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot Test Prep Course is taught by Mark Donovan, an FAA Part 107 Commercial Drone Pilot, and an FAA Part 61 manned aircraft Commercial Pilot and Certified Flight Instructor (CFI).

At Falcon Imagery, FAA Certified Flight Instructor (CFI) for manned aircraft, and Civil Air Patrol Mission Pilot and Check Pilot/Instructor Pilot, Mark Donovan, teaches the Part 107 Remote Pilot Test Prep course live. This enables students to interact directly with the instructor in a live classroom setting, either via an online Zoom meeting or at a physical location.

By participating in a live / online classroom environment, Falcon Imagery Remote Pilot students more quickly grasp the complicated subject matter areas required on the FAA’s Remote Pilot Knowledge test. Specifically, subject matters such as:

  • Understanding the National Air Space System and all its Classifications
  • Calculating Weight and Balance of a drone
  • Interpreting aviation weather resources such as METARs and TAFs
  • Reading Aviation Sectional Charts

By the end of the 7.5 hour course, Falcon Imagery Remote Pilot students have a much better understanding of the technical subject matters that they need to master for passing the FAA Remote Pilot Exam, than if they had studied independently watching hours upon hours of a video series of the same material.

This course is designed for hobbyist drone pilots, and others working in industry and law enforcement required to fly drones, who are looking to become FAA Part 107 Remote Pilots so that they can fly drones commercially and safely in the United States National Airspace System. The course is in direct alignment with the FAA’s Part 107 remote pilot certification requirements and includes the latest in 2021 regulation changes.

This is a Live / Online course, where the instructor and students directly interact with each other during the classes.

Emphasis Topics covered in the Part 107 Remote Pilot Course Include:

How to Read Sectional Charts

There’s a wealth of information on an FAA Sectional Chart that can ensure you fly your drone safely and avoid manned aircraft. This Part 107 remote pilot course provides detailed discussion on interpreting them.  

FAA Sectional Chart
National Airspace System

Our nation’s airspace is comprised of controlled and uncontrolled airspace, as well as special use and “other” airspace. Knowing where you can legally fly a drone is important for a remote pilot. This course provides in-depth discussion on this topic.  

New 2021 Part 107 Rules

Many new Part 107 rules became effective April, 2021, including:

  • Remote ID
  • Flying Drones over people
  • Flying Drones over vehicles
  • Night Operations
  • Recurrent Training
  • Inspection/Testing Compliance
  • Design & Production   
Aviation Weather

Up to 16% of the Remote Pilot Aeronautical Written Exam can be on weather. This course provides in-depth review on:

  • All available weather resources 
  • How to read and interpret aviation weather charts 
  • How to interpret METARs, TAFs and PIREPs
  • How weather (temp and pressure) impacts drone performance

By the end of this online / Live Part 107 Remote Pilot course students will be prepared to successfully pass the FAA Remote Pilot Aeronautical Knowledge Test.

In addition to in-depth training on the Part 107 FAA rules and regulations, students will be introduced to the various sUAS-related careers paths that become available to them after receiving their Part 107 Remote Pilot Certificate from the FAA.

Mark, Just finished my test with a 90. Thanks for your help yesterday, it clarified my question. I found the material you covered very relevant to the test I just completed, though I still needed to study more. I also appreciated that you were available and interested to answer my questions weeks after I took the course. That was huge.
