14CFR Part 107 FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Test Prep

Course Details

Prep Course

As of Aug 29, 2016 the FAA requires a formal license  in order to fly your drone commercially.  The Remote Pilot Certification  process will entail a 60 question, multiple choice FAA knowledge test.  There is a considerable amount of aeronautical knowledge needed to pass this test, and you may be at a disadvantage if you are not familiar with the FAA tests and information required for manned aviation.

Our industry leading two-day course will help you overcome those hurdles, and provide you with all the tools to pass the Part 107 knowledge test as well as what you need to know to operate safely within the law the day after you pass your test.

In addition to simply covering the test material, you will learn the concepts and supporting information that will help you to consolidate and truly understand the rules, guides and principles from which the unmanned aircraft general aeronautical knowledge test questions were derived.  The course material will also cover the administrative process of obtaining your Remote Pilot Certification once you’ve passed the test.  With the many so called “study guides” available, you will devote countless hours of your precious time to understand the reasoning and convention behind the manned aviation topics and in many cases you will still lack a true understanding.  There is no substitute for having you’re very own subject matter expert in person teaching you the information, concepts and techniques needed to successfully pass the FAA remote pilot knowledge test and feel good about it!  Since we started teaching this course in the summer of 2016 we have 100% pass rate.

Scott Strimple leads  a team of highly qualified instructors.  Scott holds every flight instructor certification from the FAA and has more than 25000 flight hours.  He is able to leverage his 40 plus years of operating small unmanned aircraft with his vast knowledge, training and experience from the world of manned flight to provide industry leading training in preparation for taking your test.

Remote Pilot Certification basics
You must be at least 16 years old to qualify for a remote pilot certificate, and you can obtain it in one of two ways:

  • You must pass an initial, 60 question aeronautical knowledge test at an FAA-approved knowledge testing center and pass a TSA back ground check.
  • If you already have a Part 61 pilot certificate, other than a student pilot certificate, you must have completed a flight review in the previous 24 months then you have the option to take a small UAS online training course provided by the FAA and present your completion certificate to the FAA


The Drone Flight School is NOT an FAA authorized testing facility so if you are not already a licensed pilot with a current flight review, then you will be required to physically attend an authorized FAA knowledge test facility. You will need to make a reservation to take your knowledge test. The sooner you make this reservation and take your test after this course, the greater your odds of success.

Excellent class

This class was well worth the money. I was well prepared for the 107 exam. The class also provided great guidance on how to operate in the commercial field. I highly recommend this class.

Advanced Instructor for this Course

Thank you Scott Strimple for providing the necessary training to help me successfully pass the Unmanned Aircraft - General exam. Your Remote Pilot knowledge test prep course was just what I needed to get the job done helping me obtain my Remote Pilot Certification w/small UAS rating. I highly recommend seeking out Scott's Test Prep Course for your Remote Pilot knowledge needs.

Essential training

This class is 100% necessary if you want to pass your part 107 test. I passed my test the day after my course. Worth every penny.

Well first of all thank you Scott, for teaching us the part 107 stuff. It's very complex material. As you all know there are many 107 class around in the US. I am a firm believer to learn from the best of the best.

Keep up the good work and thank you again

Best Instructor for this course!

I recently attended Scott's class and took my test a week later. It is very intense with the amount of information that is presented. But Scott's presentation was ideal... lots of visual aids, small class size, I was able to ask questions, he was thorough with his explanations... Scott wanted us to understand the information presented instead of memorizing it. I know I couldn't have gotten a 95% on my test without his help. Thank you, Scott!

Great amount of knowledge


I recently had the opportunity to attend an in person workshop with Drone Flight School.

Initially I was skeptical, because I had taken on line courses and studied with books and I wondered what I could learn...my skepticism disappeared right away.

The class was very well thought out, the instructor really knew his subject and went well above and beyond.

I got way more than my money's worth and will highly recommend Drone Flight School to anyone.

Thank you for a job well done.

Become a better pilot by investing in your future.

If you want to become a prepared, knowledgeable, expert drone pilot, not just someone who can pass a test, this course is for you. Scott Strimple's workshop covers an immense amount of material, but you will leave feeling completely prepared for what lies ahead. Every day, I am grateful I spent the money to become a better pilot.

When Scott’s class was first announced, I knew right away that I wanted to be a part of it. What better way to learn exactly what I need to know from someone who is not only an expert drone pilot, but a career commercial pilot for a major airline as well? And did I mention Scott consults for the FAA? He not only knows what he’s talking about, he is enthusiastic about sharing it with a new generation of pilots, and is passionate about seeing us succeed. I took my test a week later, fully confident, and came away with not only a passing score, but a 93% I could be proud of.

The class is also a fantastic way to network with other drone pilots in your area. After being together in the trenches of airspace, protocols, weather patterns, and aeronautical charts, I found I had new lifelong friends and fellow pilots.

Can you pass the Part 107 test without Scott’s class? Yes. But don’t you want to be a better, safer, smarter drone pilot? Scott’s class sends you flying down that road, far ahead of your industry peers who choose to self study alone.

Worth Every Penny!!!

Just passed our 107 Knowledge Test with the help of Scott Strimple of The Drone Flight School. Sure, there are online courses that you can take, but nothing can compare to the deep knowledge that Scott shares in this course that has been streamlined for you to not only pass the test, but have the confidence you need to be a certified Remote Pilot in Control. I knew NOTHING about the rules and regulations relating to drone operations before taking this course, and easily passed. Scott is an excellent and patient teacher with real-world examples that help you retain necessary jargon and complex subjects. Best money we ever spent relating to our drone operation!

Why would I pay money for this class??

Review for The Drone Flight School's 107 class in Orange County CA (Aug 2016): I admit I was hesitant to sign up at first - why would I pay $$ when I could study it myself? But I was so glad I decided to show up and took Scott's class. Not only did he make the material easy to understand but it was a fun and well-run class. Scott's extremely knowledgeable about the materials. After all, he is a United Airlines pilot, a drone pilot, and a fellow filmmaker. I really really suggest that if you have the chance to sign up for his class, do it. Sure, you can study on your own, but having the real deal instruct you is much better and more time efficient. You'll learn a lot more, retain a lot more useful information, and leave the class prepared to take the FAA exam.

As an update, I did pass my test easily, and now I am a sUAS pilot! 🙂

Pass 107

Thanks Scott for a great 2 day class that pushed me over the passing finish line on my unmanned aircraft journey. I just got a drone for my birthday in March and just so happened to get an email about a training class offered through Jersey Access Group. It turned out to be a great experience due to Scott's knowledge, easy going manner and articulate presentation. Not only do you get a lot of information but we had a study guide and practice questions to take home. Who knows, now I may ease out of my healthcare job and get back into video full time!
It was great to take a class from a teacher who has very impressive demo reel and years of flight experience to back it up. Thanks Scott! A+.
