Operating a drone for non-hobby operations requires a Remote Pilot Certificate. You must successfully complete the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Knowledge Exam to earn a Remote Pilot Certificate with a Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) rating.

Bundled with an wealth of resources including the Small UAS Study Guide and the Remote Pilot Knowledge test Guide, Sporty's Drone Study Buddy will prepare you for the Remote Pilot FAA written test like no other study tool available.

After reviewing the study material you can then study the test questions with three modes of operation. Test material is expertly organized into categories based on subject matter and includes, questions, answers, correct answers, and detailed explanations.


Learning Mode allows you to create custom review sessions by selecting exactly which categories you want to review. Each session randomly generates the question order, and provides instant feedback based on your answer selection. Each question also provides a detailed description as to why each answer is right. These explanations were developed by Sporty’s team of Master Instructor’s, based on their experience preparing for the Remote Pilot certificate.


Flashcard mode tests your knowledge by allowing you to only see the question without the answer choices. After answering the question mentally, you can then select to show the correct answer, and self-grade your progress along the way. This is a great feature that keeps you from being distracted by incorrect answers.


Test mode randomly generates a 60-question session from the entire database of published FAA test questions, simulating the real Remote Pilot test. After answering all the questions, you’ll be given instant results, and have the option to review either all the questions, or just missed questions. Included in the review session are the same detailed explanations for why each answer is correct.


After completing each test your results are saved in the app's Progress Report section, where you can review previous scores and and a detailed history of each question and answer selection. You can also pause a partially-completed session, and resume it at a later time here.


To help you prepare for the knowledge areas covered on the Remote Pilot knowledge test we've included the following resources in the app:

- Remote Pilot - Small UAS Study Guide
- Remote Pilot - Smal UAS Airman Certification Standards

I’m going to crush the test.

This is the perfect combination of value and sUAS study help in a handy app format. Learning mode gives you explanations of why each answer is right or wrong and keeps track of the ones you miss making it easy to ID weaknesses. With this, combined with my paper copy of Pilots Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge, I’m confident I can pass the test first try, no questions.

Great study aid for on the go

Great app for getting right into material or practice tests. Each question gives you an explanation in the answers and a reference on where to find more. After purchasing and taking all the practice questions I felt confident enough to schedule my exam. Great app! Love the zoom feature.
