The #1 test prep for the FAA Remote Pilot knowledge test. Updated to include FAA questions covering all of the new drone regulations that took effect April 21, 2021.
This app will prepare you for the FAA drone exam by testing your knowledge with over 500 questions, including actual FAA questions and questions covering all of the new regulations relating to night operations, Remote ID, and operations over people.
This app does not include any training content, but does provide explanations for all answers. 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
While it is possible to learn the material tested on the exam by "getting the answers wrong," and memorizing the correct answer, if you are new to drone flying, we recommend 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.
Your purchase of this app also provides you with access via the web so you can prepare for the exam on any device.

An FAA remote pilot license is required to operate drones commercially. FlightReady has trained tens of thousands of drone pilots, and offers the most complete drone subject matter coverage. Our test prep and training courses are the key to success on the FAA drone exam.
Beginning April 21, 2021, FAA-certified remote pilots are not required to take a recurrent exam every 2 years to continue exercising their privileges, and instead must complete a recurrent training course on the FAA website. Recurrent knowledge tests taken before April 1, 2021 are valid for the purpose of meeting currency requirements under the new regulations.
All exams administered by the FAA beginning April 6 will test night operations, operations over people, and Remote ID.
New: Hints and explanations in interactive activities (ground school course).
Ratings and Reviews
Great study guide
From my initial test two years ago I took a live class and I just barely scraped by passing the test that time. I think I got a 75. This time around two years later, Time for my recurrent knowledge test, I used this app to refresh my memory on the information rather than taking another life class. I got an 85, and of course there’s the odd stupid question or two that I should have gotten right so really I could’ve got a 90, not that it matters. This app has everything I need, It’s very clear, very informative, the diagrams and figures are great, and most importantly, the material covered on the app is accurate to what you will face on the exam. There was only one very random subject on my exam today that was not on the app, but it’s possible that has been patched by now. Bottom line: well worth the price, especially considering I will be using it again two years from now and etc.
The developer contacted me and asked about the test question mentioned above, so I take that to mean they will look into adding that question/subject if it is indeed missing from the app. Great customer support! One more reason to get this terrific app!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the feedback. When you get a chance, we'd appreciate some additional information about that random subject so we can add it to our course.
Great Test Prep App
I just took my initial test and passed on the first try with a 93% score.
Do not go off and spend $100’s of on one of the many online prep classes. I was able to successfully pass with the help of this app and the free materials provided by the FAA (you will find links to there in the library portion of the app).
Study those materials, use this app to show you where your weak areas are and study more. Once you can consistently score over 90% on this app’s practice exam 10 or more times in a row you should have nothing to worry about. My official test score was actually 1% higher than my last practice exam!
Remember don’t memorize the questions or the answers, they will be different on the actual test, but if you know they why behind everything you have noting to worry about.
I highly recommend!
Worth the money!
I can't say enough about this app! If you're hesitant to spend money on it, keep in mind it might save you $150 and a retest. For the record I have no previous experience with aeronautical information and most was extremely confusing at first.
Before getting this app I studied the online pdfs but had a hard time making sense of it all (it's a lot to take in!) but when I finally felt confident I took a practice test and realized I was far from ready.
I decided to purchase this app and started taking simulated tests almost everyday and using the study materials provided with the app in between when I had time. In about 1 month I went from averaging 65% on the practice tests to averaging 95%.
Today I took the test and only missed 7 questions. Out of these 7, most I had tagged on the exam and simply wasn't sure of the answer. Almost all of the answers I got correct I answered confidently and had no second thoughts on at all. Some questions were almost word for word from this app and almost all were formatted identically to ones I had seen before.
I have no experience with the other apps that are available but if you are serious about spending $150 on the test I highly recommend considering this app!
