Obtain a drone license and pass the Part 107 exam with this study guide. Learn about regulations, weather conditions, and airspace classifications for drone pilots.

00:00:00 Learn how to obtain a drone license and pass the Part 107 exam with this study guide. Discover the requirements, exam details, and exam schedule to become a certified drone pilot.

Drone licensing is required for anyone looking to fly commercially and make money.

The part 107 exam is a 60-question multiple-choice test that must be passed to receive a drone license.

The exam covers topics such as airspace maps, weather charts, and regulations.

00:13:28 This video provides a study guide for FAA Part 107 drone certification. It covers the responsibilities of a remote pilot in command, best practices for flight, required documentation, and regulations for night operations and visual line of sight.

🚁 Prior to flying a mission, the remote pilot in command must conduct an assessment of the operating environment, check weather conditions, and ensure that everyone involved has been briefed.

📝 The remote pilot in command must ensure that the controls are working properly, there is sufficient power, and all necessary documentation is visible and available for inspection.

🌇 Nighttime operations are prohibited unless the remote pilot obtains a daylight waiver and uses anti-collision lights during civil twilight hours.

👁ī¸ Visual line of sight operations require the remote pilot to maintain sight of the drone at all times, with brief moments of diversion allowed for certain purposes.

00:26:56 This video covers the FAA Part 107 study guide for drone certification, including regulations on speed, altitude, visibility, flying over structures, right-of-way rules, flying over people, transporting cargo, waivers and authorizations, and the difference between recreational and commercial pilots.

🚁 The FAA regulates drone operations, including speed, altitude, and proximity to structures.

👀 Visibility requirements include minimum visibility of three statute miles and maintaining distance from clouds.

✈ī¸ Right-of-way rules and regulations around flying over people are important for drone pilots to follow.

📜 Certificates of waivers and the consequences of drugs and alcohol are discussed for remote pilots.

đŸ’ŧ The distinction between recreational and commercial pilots and the process of registering a drone with the FAA is explained.

🛩ī¸ Differences between waivers and authorizations for flying in controlled airspace are highlighted.

00:40:25 Learn how to understand and interpret METAR and TAF reports, which provide concise statements of expected weather conditions at airports. Also, explore the key components of a METAR report, such as wind data, visibility, weather phenomena, sky condition, temperature, and altimeter setting.

✈ī¸ Authorizations are required for flying in controlled airspace and can be obtained through waiver requests.

đŸŒĻī¸ Meteorological Terminal Aviation Weather Reports (METAR) and Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts (TAF) provide concise statements of expected weather conditions at airports.

📊 Understanding METAR reports involves interpreting information such as report type, station identifier, date and time, wind data, visibility, weather phenomena, sky condition, temperature, dew point, altimeter setting, and remarks.

00:53:54 Learn about interpreting TAF reports and using weather tools for drone flight planning. Understand density altitude, wind obstructions, and the effects of different surface topography.

📝 The FAA Part 107 Study Guide explains the structure and content of TAF reports, which are similar to METAR reports.

☁ī¸ The guide discusses the importance of obtaining standard, abbreviated, and outlook weather briefings before flying, as well as utilizing flight service stations.

✈ī¸ It also covers the effects of weather on small unmanned aircraft, including density altitude, wind obstructions, and wind shear.

01:07:23 Learn how to identify microbursts, different types of fog, cloud formations, thunderstorm stages, stable and unstable air masses, and airspace classifications for drone pilots.

🔑 Microbursts can cause dangerous flight conditions, so it's important to identify them.

đŸŒĢī¸ There are six types of fog, including radiation fog, advection fog, upslope fog, and precipitation-induced fog.

☁ī¸ Low-level clouds include cumulus clouds and stratus clouds, while cirrus clouds indicate a change in weather.

⛈ī¸ Thunderstorms have three stages: cumulus stage, mature stage, and dissipating stage.

đŸŒŦī¸ Stable air masses have consistent conditions, while unstable air masses produce cumulus clouds and showery precipitation.

🚁 Airspace is classified into six categories, and uas operations mainly occur in class G airspace, which is uncontrolled airspace.

01:20:52 Learn about the different airspace classifications and special use airspace for drone pilots, including controlled and uncontrolled airspace. Understand the restrictions and permissions required for flying in different types of airspace.

🛩ī¸ Different airspace classifications and the need for clearance to fly in controlled airspace.

đŸšĢ Prohibited, restricted, warning, and military operations areas and the restrictions on flying in these areas.

🌐 No TAMS and TFRs, and the importance of checking these before flying near airports.
