Remote Pilot Certification

After several months of absorbing everything I could find regarding Part 107 of the Federal Aviation Regulations, I finally decided to bite the bullet and take the General Airman Knowledge test in order obtain a Remote Pilot Certification. I took my sweet time during the exam, 1.5 hours specifically, and passed with a score of 97. Of course I was happy, but I might have done better if the testing supplemental charts had been a little sharper in reproduction. One of the two questions I missed was about dual registration of the same aircraft in two countries. If I had thought for a few more minutes it might have dawned on me that I’d never seen two N numbers on the tail of an aircraft. Hmm.

Oh well, it could have been worse. I might have had to take the test over for failure to pass.

The CFI who proctored the test said I made the highest score ever at that facility. He offered for me take some other exams, but my wallet was light enough at that point. Maybe one day. Sport Pilot is on the short list. Now I wait for the plastic from the FAA to arrive in the mail and Z3DP will be able to legally operate drones in Bowling Green Kentucky and beyond.
