How to Pass the FAA’s Part 107 Exam

The FAA’s part 107 exam is a necessary evil for anyone that wants to use their drone commercially. Unfortunately for drone pilots, the questions are mainly unrelated to flying a drone. The FAA wants you to understand the National Airspace system, be able to read sectional charts, read a METAR weather report and identify the difference between Macho and impulsive behavior.  There are some really good classes out there and UAV coach is one of the best.  If you want something to walk you through the test, quiz you along the way and provide resources to make sure you pass then I’d suggest clicking the link here to sign up for his course, use the code CHROME50 and save $50 when you enroll.

However, Chris and I have been studying drone law since the inception of the Part 107 exam. Chris passed the 107 test on the very first day it was available. I have taught a drone class with a unit on Part 107 study to high school students since 2020.

We have built an entire 107 curriculum for our Patreons plus a few additional resources. Slide decks, answers to the guided notes, practice quizzes, and easy access to Chris and me to answer your questions. There are seven different videos with guided notes and resources to help you prepare. You can get a little preview of what we have done below.
