Last week, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that it will require recertification for those who receive a Remote Pilot Airman Certificate under Part 107 small unmanned aircraft system (UAS or drone) regulations. The certification will only have a 24 month shelf life, and then the pilot needs to recertify their knowledge through additional testing. The additional test will question pilots about weather, loading and performance of the drone and updates on regulation and airspace requirements—these questions will take up about 70-80 percent of the recertification test. The remaining questions will focus on remote operation knowledge, emergency procedures, and drone maintenance. Be sure to keep up with the FAA’s recertification requirements before flying your drone for commercial purposes.
