Every Remote Pilot must re-certify with the FAA every two years by taking a written test. Much like taking the initial drone test, the recurrent knowledge testing process requires pilots to book a testing appointment at one of around 700 FAA-approved knowledge testing centers across the United States and achieve at least a 70% score to pass. Upon passing, pilots receive a license, which is good for two years.

  • It’s interesting to see this being implemented throughout the civilian sector. When I went through the UAV school in Fort Huachuca, We had to go through the FAA ground school as one of the classes to graduate. This was way back in 2007.
