Drone Stakeholders to Help FAA Develop Recreational Drone Flyer Test – UAS VISION

Drone Stakeholders to Help FAA Develop Recreational Drone Flyer Test – UAS VISION | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) recreational drone flyer test will be an important opportunity to educate recreational flyers about the rules of the sky as we continue to safely integrate drones into our nation’s airspace. A law passed in 2018 requires that recreational drone flyers pass an online aeronautical knowledge and safety test and carry proof that they have passed the test with them while operating a drone. In September, the FAA posted a request for information (RFI) asking for you, the drone community, to submit suggestions on how best to administer the new recreational knowledge test. Based on responses to the RFI, the organizations below have been invited to make recommendations on the administration of the test. These recommendations will assist the agency in developing requirements that potential test administrators must meet. These requirements, and any associated selection criteria for test administrators will be announced on FAA.gov. Embry Riddle Aeronautical University Drone Launch Academy Southeastern University Science Applications International Corporation DJI Horizon Hobby, LLC. Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Coach King Schools Unmanned Safety Institute First Person View Freedom Coalition Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association Academy of Model Aeronautics; and Drone Racing League. The FAA has great safety information and tips on FAA.gov. Source: Press Release Download article as PDF
