You'll be completely prepared to take the FAA Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Drone Knowledge Test—the required exam you need to pass to get a Remote Pilot Certificate.

This course is the result of a collaboration between the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) and King Schools. AUVSI is the world's largest unmanned systems nonprofit organization. Serving more than 7,500 members from government organizations, industry and academia, AUVSI is committed to fostering, developing, and promoting unmanned systems and robotics technologies.


The key word when it comes to being a drone pilot is pilot—when flying drones, you need to know a significant amount of the same core subjects pilots flying airplanes need to know and fully understand. Those subject areas include:

  • FAA Part 107 Regulations
  • Aerodynamics
  • Sectional Charts
  • Airspace 
  • Weather 
  • Communications
  • Flight Operations
  • Aircraft Performance
  • Weight & Balance

 

In fact, the FAA Test will include some of the exact same questions used to test those taking their private pilot knowledge test.

Understand the Knowledge and Flight Concepts

You´ll be so engaged by KING's clear, simple, fun presentation.

  • Learn by watching full-screen, bite-sized video segments
  • Reinforce your learning by answering the FAA-style questions that automatically follow each segment

Fly Your Drone Legally!
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has Authorized Non-Recreational Drone Operations


There are two sets of rules depending on the type of operation. The requirements for who may operate the UAV are different for each type of operation.

Group 1 - Rules for Commercial Operators/Private Citizens
This set of rules applies to individuals or commercial enterprises who are not employed by, or working for a governmental agency. The rules apply any time you are operating a drone in the furtherance of a business even if there is no direct compensation.

Group 2 - Rules for people who are working for Government agencies
This set of rules is for people who fly drones for government entities (local, state and federal government agencies) regardless if they are employees or contractors.

Government agencies must have a Certificate of Authorization (COA) from the FAA that outlines the specific conditions that they have to follow to fly a drone including pilot certification.

What does all this mean?
Since August 29, 2016, most pilots operating a small UAS for non-recreational purposes must either hold a FAA Remote Pilot Certificate with a Small UAS Rating or be under the direct supervision of a person who does hold a Remote Pilot Certificate (the remote Pilot In Command). To qualify for a Remote Pilot Certificate, you must:

  • Pass an initial aeronautical knowledge test at an FAA-Approved Knowledge Testing Center
  • OR
  • If you already hold an FAA Part 61 Pilot Certificate (other than Student Pilot):
    • Have a successful Flight Review endorsed within the previous 24 months
    • Complete a small UAS online training course provided by the FAA.


All applicants will be vetted by the TSA and you must be 16 years or older. Part 61 Pilot Certificate holders may obtain a temporary remote pilot certificate immediately upon submission of their application for a permanent certificate through the FAA's IACRA site. For more details on the new FAA drone regulations go to https://www.faa.gov/uas/

Having a Remote Pilot Certificate is a great accomplishment and the key that will open many doors for those who wish to earn income by flying a drone.

Reaching your goal of flying drones (UAS) will be a life changing experience—At King Schools, it's our mission to help ensure your success. KING and the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) have a five year comprehensive agreement that will ensure your drone training will be comprehensive and up to the latest FAA testing standards.

Great Online Training!
Initially looking at all the material to learn, I was a little nervous. The online videos are fun to watch, and the exams are great! I waited to write this review until I passed the Part 107 exam. Just pay attention to their videos, do every test at the end, along with the random a few times, and you will do just fine.

Good but could be great
I thought the videos were good for the most part. There was A LOT of buffering in there that was coming up on most of the videos. At some point, it was minutes long. It wasn't a connection issue as I also ran youtube at the same time and there was no issue.

Could have done better
I've been using the King materials for since 1998 and have also been involved in operation and maintaining UAS/Drones for years. I was disappointed in what seems to be a thrown together training. The drone footage was very bad, I'm torn on thinking it was meant to show drone operators as unsafe or the lack of experience in the people chosen for the limited # of clips. Also too much older aircraft training material was used adding to the thought that this was thrown together just to have a course available.

OUTSTANDING PREP COURSE
I just passed my Remote Pilot FAA Exam with a 92%this past Friday in Sacramento, CA on my first try after taking the King Schools course. The course is extremely well done and thorough. The videos are well done and I love the way they teach various concepts with ways to help you remember and a number of funny one-liners! In addition to this course I also became familiar with FAA Advisory Circular 107-2. Although the FAA test did phrase a few questions in unexpected ways, most of the test was straight forward and all the knowledge I learned in this course helped me to answer 55 out of 60 questions correctly. I highly recommend this course to anyone contemplating taking the Part 107 exam. I studied this material for 12 days at 5-8 hours per day and felt very confident in my ability to easily pass the FAA exam. In fact, I told my wife that I would score in the 90's, but was hoping for a 100%, but our wascally Guberment tripped me up just a little. My exam was weighted heavily on Chart questions and basic sUAS questions. I had very little weight and balance questions and only two weather questions. Know your Charts!!! Anyway thanks to King Schools for the outstanding course and at $99 was a bargain. I'll be back again in 2 years to review for my first Remote Pilot Certificate renewal.

Great Helpful Course! Passed!
This course was very helpful and detailed. I almost feel like I can fly a real plane now. Although some questions were re-worded differently and intentionally trying to trick you on the test, the information I learned here will be invaluable; especially when I run into those cumulo-nimbus-mama clouds! What I loved about this course was that you could review and review over again. The videos very clearly explained all the knowledge concepts and the memory aids were really helpful. It took me 3 weeks to take the course and pass the test. Recommended!

It Works
The curiculum is laid out well and delivered in just the right bites. And you gotta love John and Martha. I figured I could have done the study on my own but this was much faster, I believe I learned more and the testing is invaluable. I passed my test today, the first time!!!

Passed the 107 with 87%
With this training coarse I was able to pass my test with 87% correct. The FAA has added a lot of new questions that are not covered in this coarse. How ever I was able to make an educated guess thanks to the training of this coarse and still got the questions answered correctly. If you want the best shot at getting your 107 passed this coarse is still the best one out there. The testing instructor said the FAA dos not publish their test questions and they are always updating the data bank the questions are pulled from and many of the training schools are really out of date. I have tried other training sites and only came away more confused about everything. That being said I am really glad I found this coarse. The Kings covered all areas in a way that made learning easy and understandable.

sUAS pilot training made easy.
I have completed the aUAS pilot course and found it refreshingly easy to understand and follow. I took my time and completed it in two weeks.

Scored 95% on the test
Well, the proof on how good the course is or is not, simply boils down to test results. In my case, I made a 95% and I'm pretty sure it would have been a 100 except for those few super tricky questions. Bottom line, I'm very glad I took the course. In addition to this wonderful course, I recommend reading the 107 Advisory Circular and being very familiar FAA-CT-8080-2G that will be used throughout the test.
