This ACS book from the FAA lists the standards and requirements for the Remote Pilot Certificate, issued for operating drones and small unmanned aircraft systems in the National Airspace System. The new Airman Certification Standards are ideal for checkride preparation, and will help applicants develop an understanding of how knowledge, risk management, and skill elements work together for safe performance of each required task they may be asked to perform during the checkride. For instructors, the ACS will serve as a guide for teaching and training an applicant everything they need to know for certification and safe operation within the National Airspace System. Designated Pilot Examiners (DPEs) will use the ACS to assess an applicant's understanding, knowledge, risk management considerations, and performance of each task. As always, ASA delivers authentic, accurate, and reliable FAA documents exactly as provided by the FAA. One noticeable change is that the FAA has adapted the size and format of the ACS so that it lists everything an applicant needs to know, consider, and do in order to pass both the knowledge test and the practical test for a certificate or rating.

Passing the FAA Knowledge Exam is required to earn a remote pilot certificate. This text is designed to not only comprehensively prepare you for the exam but to also teach you how a UAS flies, how to intelligently talk about them and their components and be well versed in the aeronautical knowledge required to fly these systems in the same airspace as large commercial jets. Covers the language of drones, regulations, airspace and navigation, airport and off-airport operations, radio communication procedures, weather, aerodynamics and aircraft performance, emergency procedures, human factors, maintenance and preflight inspection procedures. The required aeronautical knowledge is augmented with specific tips and techniques, checklists and mnemonic devices, and sound advice from personal experience. Each chapter concludes with review questions similar to the type found on the FAA test, and a glossary and index are included. This practical application of the FAA Knowledge Exam is not available in any other book and you will gain the knowledge needed to pass the test and understand how to operate safely as a remote pilot in the U.S. National Airspace System.

Private Pilot Airman Certification Standards - Airplane

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has published the Private Pilot - Airplane Airman Certification Standards (ACS) document to communicate the aeronautical knowledge, risk management, and flight proficiency standards for the private pilot certification in the airplane category, single-engine land and sea; and multiengine land and sea classes. This ACS incorporates and supersedes the previous Private Pilot Practical Test Standards for Airplane, FAA-S-8081-14. The FAA views the ACS as the foundation of its transition to a more integrated and systematic approach to airman certification. The ACS is part of the safety management system (SMS) framework that the FAA uses to mitigate risks associated with airman certification training and testing. Specifically, the ACS, associated guidance, and test question components of the airman certification system are constructed around the four functional components of an SMS: Safety Policy that defines and describes aeronautical knowledge, flight proficiency, and risk management as integrated components of the airman certification system; Safety Risk Management processes through which internal and external stakeholders identify and evaluate regulatory changes, safety recommendations and other factors that require modification of airman testing and training materials; Safety Assurance processes to ensure the prompt and appropriate incorporation of changes arising from new regulations and safety recommendations; and Safety Promotion in the form of ongoing engagement with both external stakeholders (e.g., the aviation training industry) and FAA policy divisions. The FAA has developed this ACS and its associated guidance in collaboration with a diverse group of aviation training experts. The goal is to drive a systematic approach to all components of the airman certification system, including knowledge test question development and conduct of the practical test. The FAA acknowledges and appreciates the many hours that these aviation experts have contributed toward this goal. This level of collaboration, a hallmark of a robust safety culture, strengthens and enhances aviation safety at every level of the airman certification system.

The FAA has significantly relaxed regulatory requirements for flying small unmanned aircraft. Commercial entities or freelancers need not apply individually for waivers or authority to fly for commercial purposes. Now, anyone can fly a drone weighing less than 55 pounds and get paid for it as long as he registers the drone, a simple web-based process costing only five dollars, and passes a written test. This book is designed to help anyone pass the written test. Even the holders of regular pilots' licenses must complete an online course containing much of the same material covered by the written test. The book packages the material into the same categories that the FAA has specified for the written test. It includes the FAA's 40 sample questions published in late July, and has review questions at the end of each chapter. Someone who reads the book, understands the material, and completes the review questions should have no difficulty passing the FAA's Remote Pilot - Small Unmanned Aircraft Rating knowledge test.
