HOW TO BECOME A DRONE PILOT

Everything starts with an effort!

Obtain an FAA Tracking Number (FTN) by creating an Integrated Airman Certification and Rating Application (IACRA) profile prior to registering for a knowledge exam.
Schedule an appointment with a Knowledge Testing Center which administer initial and recurrent FAA knowledge exams. Be sure to bring a government-issued photo ID to your exam
Pass the initial aeronautical knowledge exam.
Complete FAA Form 8710-13 for a remote pilot certificate (FAA Airman Certificate and/or Rating Application) using the electronic FAA Integrated Airman Certificate and/or Rating Application system (IACRA)
A confirmation email will be sent when an applicant has completed the TSA security background check. This email will provide instructions for printing a copy of the temporary remote pilot certificate from IACRA
A permanent remote pilot certificate will be sent via mail once all other FAA-internal processing is complete.
Have your Remote Pilot Certificate available whenever you fly your UAS
