I’ve been procrastinating about getting my certification for over a year now. I would start studying and then other things came up and it really just didn’t seem that important to me. My flying abilities have improved over the last couple of years and I have had more and more requests that could have potentially resulted in paying gigs. I finally decided to be earnest about my quest for my part 107 certification and so I dedicated 2 weeks to the process and I’m going to walk you through my strategy which ultimate resulted in me passing my test with 90% on January 29th, 2020. I wasted about 2 days trying to decide which drone school to attend. The two I found myself most interested in were Drone Pilot Ground School and Remote Pilot 101. Ultimately as I researched I found all sorts of free resources out there on YouTube and such and I realised that all I would really be buying in purchasing a school was an attempt at more discipline to study. I decided to quit researching where to study and start studying!! I did spend some money on resources which I consider to have been invaluable. I bought the remote pilot test prep book off of Amazon and the ASA Airman Knowledge Testing Supplement. The testing supplement is identical to the link I have included below as a PDF – (Faa Testing Supplement). I used both the print version and the pdf version in my studies. The nice thing about the pdf version is that you can zoom in electronically whereas in the print version you’ll need a magnifying glass for some of the smaller stuff! You’ll get the paper version in the test so best to practice with paper!! FAA LinksFAA Chart Users GuideFAA Testing Supplement...
About your author
I grew up on the 'Spice Island', the island of Grenada located in the West Indies in the Caribbean Sea. I love Grenada and hope one day to return there permanently. For now I live in the San Francisco bay area on my boat and am blessed with a wonderful job as a lead Aircraft Maintenance Technician with Southwest Airlines in Oakland, Ca. I have been in the Aviation business since I was 18 years old initiated in the field by The United States Navy which I joined at age 17. My other interests are my boat which I live on, my wonderfully loving dogs, music and creativity of all sorts.
