New FAA Recurrent Test Set to Launch April 6 #drone #droneday
Incredibly exciting news that’ll make drone pilot’s lives easier from The Drone Girl:
What will the new FAA recurrent test be like?
When it goes live in April 6, it won’t be much of a test at all — it’s more of an online training course. There will be new information, including updated rules around flying drones at night.
You’ll be able to access it for free through www.FAASafety.gov (you’ll need to be logged in to do so).
Once you finish the online course, you’ll receive a digital completion certificate (which you should print out and stash in your drone bag in case you need to reference it).
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
