Description

The #1 test prep for the FAA Drone Exam. Over 20,000 pilots have relied on FlightReady to train and prepare for the FAA exams.

This app includes test prep for the initial and re-certification FAA remote pilot exams. If you are planning to fly a drone commercially, you must obtain an FAA Remote Pilot license by passing the FAA Remote Pilot knowledge test.

Over 10% of all test takers fail the FAA exam on the first try, and must pay $150 to take the exam again. This app prepares you for the drone exam using a question bank of over 430 questions, including actual FAA questions, along with over 175 flashcards to help memorize rules, chart symbols, and other drone knowledge.

We offer two apps to prepare for the FAA drone exam:

◗ Remote Pilot Test Prep (this app) - Practice questions to prepare for the exam
◗ Remote Pilot Ground School - A complete training course plus practice questions

This app does not include any training content, and requires knowledge of drone operations and FAA drone regulations. While it is possible to learn the material by "getting the answers wrong," and memorizing the correct answer, if you are new to drone flying, we suggest our Remote Pilot Ground School app, which includes a complete course covering every area tested on the exam.

If you are undecided on which app is the right app for your needs, you can purchase this app and later upgrade to the complete Ground School via in-app purchase by tapping the Store menu option.

◖◖CONFIGURE CUSTOM SESSIONS◗◗

Use Study Mode to create question sessions based on topics, session size, and your overall mastery. Filters allow you to include or exclude questions based on mastery and other question characteristics.

Use Exam Mode to take simulated FAA drone exams administered in a timed environment under the same rules as the real FAA drone exam.

◖◖REPORTS AND STATISTICS◗◗

Gauge your progress and readiness to take the drone exam. Create and send reports of your exam history to anyone.

◖◖RECURRENT TRAINING◗◗

Your access never expires. You can use this app to prepare for the recurrent FAA drone exam, which is required every two years to continue exercising the privileges of your FAA drone license.

◖◖OTHER FEATURES◗◗

Drone subject matter is categorized into discrete topics, enabling focused study sessions and better insight into weak areas.

View definitions of key terms and acronyms in answer explanations

Explanations consisting of text, graphic, applicable regulation, or a combination thereof.

Multi-tasking support allows you to use FlightReady side by side with any FAA drone references.

Proficiency is tracked using a proprietary algorithm that assigns a mastery level to each question. Know when you are ready for the drone exam when most questions reach the highest mastery level.

Figures and charts are presented in the same screen so that you can view both the question and the figure. We use the actual figures in the FAA's knowledge test supplement for the remote pilot exam.

Quickly create new sessions from missed questions, or review missed questions and explanations.

Swipe left in the question view to reveal question list showing progress, marked questions, and more.
