As the first remote pilots certified under Part 107, which took effect in August 2016, begin to take recurrent tests to maintain certification for two more years, King Schools has rolled out a training course to prepare for that test.
The FAA requires Part 107 pilots who are not certificated under Part 61 to take a recurrent knowledge test, a 40-question version of the 60-question initial certification exam. (Part 61 pilots, other than student pilots, with a current flight review can opt for a free, online test available through the FAA Safety Team website. The FAA website has details on both routes to drone flying currency.)
John and Martha King, the founders and co-chairmen of King Schools, noted in their news release that more than 4,000 remote pilots have passed their initial exam after taking the initial training course, and it has received positive reviews from nearly all.
“We have more than 400 reviews for this course and almost all of them have a 5-star rating,” John King said in the Sept. 10 news release. “Our customers enjoy the HD-video in the regulations lesson, the interactive FAA-style questions, and the extended content throughout the course. Our recertification course continues that same style.”
King Schools has become one the most recognized names in aviation training during its more than 40 years of offering a range of products and courses to prepare students for all types of aviation certification.
