FAA launches recreational drone test: TRUST


The FAA has announced a list of organizations approved to administer a recreational drone test, designed to provide recreational drone pilots “with knowledge of aviation safety and an overview of the rules for operating drones in the national system of l ‘airspace,’ the FAA press release reads.

The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 ordered the FAA to develop a recreational drone operator test: the drone industry provided stakeholder input, and the result is a free online test administered by test administrators non-governmental. Recreational drone pilots who pass the test will receive a certificate of completion. When asked, a recreational drone pilot must provide proof of having passed the test. Currently, however, the FAA has not announced a system for enforcing the test or for informing consumers about the test at the time of purchase.

In addition to clubs such as the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and the Boy Scouts of America, TRUST will be administered by qualified educational and training organizations across the country.

“These organizations are essential in making this test widely available and easily accessible to recreational drone pilots,” said FAA Administrator Steve Dickson. “We need the pilots of all aircraft, including those operating recreational drones, to have the training and knowledge to operate safely in the country’s airspace.”

Drone U is one of the first FAA approved TRUST test administrators. “As one of the largest online drone pilot training institutions, it seemed like a natural fit,” said Paul Aitken, CEO of Drone U. “We are already training people to fly drones and to do it safely. Why not add this step and help them pass the new FAA required TRUST? “

“For years, Drone U has focused on training drone pilots to fly, do it safely, and start a drone business. This includes the development of communities and platforms for individual pilots and large-scale drone fleets run by businesses and government organizations, ”says a press release from Drone U.

“With our continued commitment to developing and providing exceptional training, resources, expertise, community and drone fleet management to the industry, Drone U is uniquely positioned to work with the FAA to help ensure that the general public is also aware of the regulations and how to operate safely in the country’s airspace, ”explains Aiken.
