FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018

The passage of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 included a requirement for recreational UAS users to pass a knowledge and safety test. 

This test doesn’t replace the more comprehensive Part 107 test. 

Recently, the FAA announced that the AMA can host The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST). 

Please see the YouTube video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZB3pmOJFFaI for more information.  The test and other helpful information can be found at the AMA website: https://www.modelaircraft.org/trust.  

  It takes about 30 minutes to take the test.  There are about 25 “Knowledge Check” questions sprinkled throughout the test.  Most of the test covers safety and other things that we already know, but there is additional information about the LAANC system that is new. 

At the end of the test, you have to give them first and last name for the business card-sized certificate.  This proves that you passed the test. 

All in all, it is a simple test, and  if the FAA should come around the field, and ask to see your  papers- you are covered!!!.
