About this Workshop

The purpose of this course is to prepare first-time pilots for the Unmanned Aircraft General – Small (UAG)
FAA Written Exam. Passing this exam will certify each participant as a small Unmanned Aircraft System
(sUAS) pilot. The classroom portion will cover the knowledge areas listed in the Remote Pilot Airmen Certification
Standards, which include:

  • 14 CFR Part 107 Regulations
  • Airspace
  • Aviation weather sources and weather effects on sUAS
  • Aircraft loading and performance
  • Radio Communications
  • Airport Operations
  • Emergency Procedures
  • Aeronautical Decision Making
  • Physiology
  • Maintenance and Inspection Procedures

All portions of this course will be taught by certified UAS pilots that are also manned aviation instructors. While similar courses
prepare you to pass the FAA Written Exam only, our goal is to make participants well-rounded, knowledgeable,
and safety oriented Remote Pilots.
