The FAA has adopted specific rules to allow the operation of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) in the National airspace system for purposes other than hobby or recreation The rules are specified in the Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) Part 107, "Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems." Part 107 Addresses sUAS classification, certification, and operational limitations and applies to the operation of certain civil small unmanned aircraft within the NAS. Except for certain excluded aircraft operations, any aircraft that meets the criteria below is considered a small unmanned aircraft.
Persons operating a sUAS for commercial use must pass the Airman Written Knowledge Test identified by the FAA and PSI/Lasergrade as the UAG (Unmanned Aircraft General-Small) The test consists of 60 questions, you must be 14 years of age to take the two hour test and pass with 70% or better. This test requires NO instructor endorsement or any other form of written authorization.
An applicant must wait 14 days after failure to retest. Again, NO instructor endorsement is required, but you must present the original failed AKTR (Airman Knowledge Test Report) to retest.
JustFly! Flight Training offers a six hour test prep course for the UAG. The course is offered on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Each session is 2 hours in duration.
