Description

Comprehensive preparation, study and test tool for the Remote Pilot (Unmanned Aircraft General - Small) FAA Knowledge Exam. Questions, answers and explanations included, for you to study with a true-to-form practice test. Operating a drone for non-hobby operations requires a Remote Pilot Certificate. Applicants must successfully complete the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Knowledge Exam to earn the Remote Pilot Certificate with a Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) rating. This app is the key to test success. Rely on the time-tested and dependable ASA Prepware apps to prepare for your FAA Knowledge Exam. Test material is expertly organized into chapters based on subject matter and includes instructional text and illustrations, multiple-choice questions, answer stems, correct answers, explanations (for correct and incorrect answers), and references for further study. This topical study promotes understanding and aids recall to provide an efficient study guide. Subjects covered include Regulations, National Airspace System, Weather, Loading and Performance, and Operations. This app will be particularly helpful for drone operators interested in earning a Remote Pilot certificate, Remote Pilot Aircraft (RPA) applicants, Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) training programs preparing applicants for FAA Knowledge exams, self-study applicants interested in learning more about commercial unmanned aircraft operations, and existing (manned aircraft) pilots interested in learning more about drone and unmanned aircraft operations who are sharing the National Airspace System. ASA’s Prepware Remote Pilot app is the best resource for successful test-taking and safe small UAS operations.

  • Best study tool

    I have used asa perp apps before for the FAA Airframe, Powerplant, and General written knowledge exam as my main studying tool they were the best studying tool in my opinion. The Remote Pilot app was also great and was my main source of study. I do wish they would have had better questions that more resembled the exam a little bit better. Might just be time for a update to the app.

    Just took the 107 today (December 19). There were about three questions from this app on the actual test. This app is an OK study quite but I would not focus more than 10% of my time on this app. I took every study guide section everyday and then tested myself before and after. I did this for two weeks straight. I basically knew every question, 95% on every test. The actual 107 is 50%+ on sectionals, 20% TAF’s, 10% weather, 5% regulations and 5% of questions that are completely unknown. Use the FAA study guide, YouTube classes, test prep books and a little bit of this app. YES, I did pass the 107. Probably could of done much better had I not relied so heavily on this app.

    I have diligently studied for the past month all of the written material I could find and this App was highly recommended by someone on YouTube. I've used it day and night for a week and a half and the past 3 days have consistently scored 100 on each of the Sectional Studies and 100 on the last 7 test I took! I just took my FAA exam this afternoon and made an 87! Yes, I passed but only 7 of the questions out of the 314 in the App were on the test! Even the Examiner told me afterward that 3 of the questions that I missed were so totally bazaar that no one knows what the answer is supposed to be and he is a top notch Flight Instructor!! Since the App said it had updated its questions and explanations on June 28, I expected a much greater percentage to actually be on the exam! Update: 2 things to add...a few years back I took Ground School and passed my Written Exam after missing only 1 question! I thought that this App had far too many "manned aircraft" type questions but I was totally prepared for any on the Part 107 exam. At least the exam I took yesterday had none of those type questions.
  • Just pay the $5 you won't be disappointed!

    Never felt compelled to write an app review before, but for this I had to. I just took the exam (August 2017) and I'd say 40/60 of the questions on my test were sample questions here. If you memorize the bank you're already most of the way home. Ideally you understand the concepts behind the question then memorization is not required, however, some of these questions are vague/poorly written and technically have more than one correct answer so knowing the keyed answer becomes very beneficial. I like that the answers have explanations. Sometimes they are needed. My tips for the exam: know your charts/airspaces. These become gimme questions. Then you can afford to miss the vague ones. Remote PIC is not the answer to every 3rd question as some of the online practice tests would have you believe! (I had 3) FYI, my test had several questions regarding the (now repealed) drone registration rules for recreational pilots so be prepared to answer those still. Seriously just get this app.

    I just passed my test and this is a great reference to what a lot of the test questions are like. There are explanations for each question which is extremely helpful. Over 300 different questions so you can get a lot of practice.

    Most of the stuff in this app is in the test. I would say once your getting 96's your ready for the real deal.
  • Needs to be "tweaked" a bit.

    For the most part, this app works well. The problem that I have experienced is that if you do a partial study and want to finish it later, and have marked the questions with the blue marker, the option to "exit and save" doesn't work at all! If that option is available on the screen then it should work. It doesn't work and one has to start all over and on a different set of questions when you reopen the App. Why doesn't it work? Seems like a easy fix for the developers.

    While being a decent practice module, they need to mix up the order of the possible answers from practice test to practice test. It would also be nice if they had several preinstalled questions asking the same thing in different ways. It is too easy to get lulled into thinking you know everything just because you can answer all their questions.
  • Better alternatives out there

    I wanted to make sure I passed on the first try, and this being a new exam no one really knew what to expect. I ended up buying all three apps available on the App Store, this being the cheapest. It's also the least helpful both in terms of functionality and the scope of the question bank. As others have noted there are a lot of questions that won't be on the exam because they relate to manned aircraft. Also there are only a few categories of questions and you are forced to create very large study sessions. Finally other apps do a better job of tracking your prior results so you can see your improvement. The exam is expensive ($150). My suggestion is spend the money on a prep app. Saving $15 may cost you ten times that to retake the exam.

    I used this app to pass my 107 certification. I would say that the exam was a lot easier than the tests provided here. This app and Tony Northrup's free video were the two main sources I used to study and it worked out great. There is one question however that appeared on the exam that was the same as the one that appears here (the Blue Angels question). I believe the answer for that question is wrong in this app (I used the same answer on the exam and it is the only question I got wrong). Goes to prove you need to actually read the study guide as well, not just skim thru it.
