    Passed the remote pilot school 101 final exam two times today

    Looks like I need to sell something and go take the 107 :)

    Thanks everyone for your patience and guidance along this journey I never thought my brain could do it..

    Brian :)

    Good luck, Brian! The actual test is worded a little different and is a little trickier. I never got less than 90 on my practice test and even a couple 100's. Got an 83 on the actual test. they give you plenty of time so take your time and you'll pass it.

    Is there a way to take the 107 test online?

    I have read that you have to take it at a brick and mortar location.

    I have a really busy schedule with my work, but I am very interested in getting the certification to fly commercially.

    Part 107 Test is In person for the non 61's and Online for the 61's, it is not the same tests as 61's already had their VFR Maps, Weather and all, but they are all under the FAA 107 my good friend !

    Your right to study weather, clouds and effects. Another area to concentrate studies is Charts and Airport Approach ways.

    The remote pilot test is the easiest one. You had to pass with a 100% score when I took it.

    The aeronautical knowledge test encompasses more subject matter than the remote pilot test. It's essentially a reduced version of the Sport Pilot written test. You get weather, airspace, charts, aircraft performance, and a tiny bit of law.

    The remote pilot test I am speaking of is the online course course, remotepilot101.com are we on the same page? He give actual question from the pool, and I have the FAA remote pilot study guide as well -- I have gone thru many different tests, worded different, or different questions -- and the longer I study the worse it gets LOL but im anywhere between 80 - and 86 now..
