The Recreational Drone Flyer Test is Coming Soon and the FAA could use your help.
Are you part of the drone or tech industry? If so the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) wants your help to administer a recreational flyer knowledge and safety test to the widest audience possible! We have posted a Knowledge Test Administration RFI where you can read and understand what information the FAA is looking for and then submit your suggestions.
While the FAA develops the training and test content, they’re seeking your help to ensure it is administered in an effective way and is looking for input from both private and public sectors on how to make the test easily accessible to drone users.
“We love that the drone community is growing so quickly, and because drones can be flown straight out-of-the-box, we need to make sure that drone pilots only take flight once they know the FAA’s aviation rules and safety practices.”
“Congress requires that recreational flyers pass a test and we now have an opportunity to educate recreational flyers on drone safety and to bring new flyers into our extraordinary aviation safety culture.”
This knowledge test will be an important step to educate recreational flyers about the rules of the sky. The FAA says “.As we continue to safely integrate drones into our nation’s airspace. We look forward to getting your feedback by September 12, 2019.”
