sUAS Remote Pilot License Test Prep Course

What: The sUAS Remote Pilot License Test Prep Course is an overview class designed to help you prepare for the test for Part 107, the small UAS Rule. Part 107 authorizes commercial drone use without a Section 333 exemption and without a manned aircraft pilots license. The course is taught by qualified instructors with experience in aviation and UAS training. 

The purpose of this seminar program is to prepare participants to pass the FAA’s sUAS initial written Aeronautical Knowledge Test, which is required to obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate and operate a commercial drone. The 15-hour course covers history, theory of operations and a basic introduction to drone technology and consists of pre-read materials, in-class lectures and a practice exam at the end of the course. Students will leave the class not only prepared to pass the Aeronautical Knowledge Test, but with a better understanding of safe and professional drone operation. An official OU Certificate of Completion and CEUs will be granted.

Why: The FAA requires commercial drone operators to pass a computer-based aeronautical knowledge test specific to drone operations. This course is designed to prepare one for that test. 

Learn more about FAA Part 107 requirements.

Instructors: This course is taught by a team of Flight Instructors from the OU School of Aviation Studies.
