Part 107 FAA Testing Center Map

The Federal Aviation Administration requires that drone operators pass an unmanned aerial system (UAS) drone aeronautical knowledge test as one of the requirements for legally flying drones commercially.

What are the expected areas this commercial drone test will cover?

The FAA’s test areas include:

  • Applicable regulations relating to small unmanned aircraft system rating privileges, limitations, and flight operation
  • Airspace classification and operating requirements, and flight restrictions affecting small unmanned aircraft operation
  • Aviation weather sources and effects of weather on small unmanned aircraft performance Small unmanned aircraft loading and performance
  • Emergency procedures
  • Crew resource management
  • Radio communication procedures
  • Determining the performance of small unmanned aircraft
  • Physiological effects of drugs and alcohol Aeronautical decision-making and judgment
  • Airport operations
  • Maintenance and pre-flight inspection procedures

What happens if I fail the FAA’s aeronautical knowledge test?

You may not retake the knowledge test for 14 calendar days from the date of the previous failure, so use that time to relax and refresh on the parts you are unsure of. After two weeks, you can retest. You don’t even have to tell your teachers what happened — no instructor endorsement or other forms of written authorization is required to retest.
