The Federal Aviation Administration has released a set of updated FAA Drone Pilot Exam changes to the Part 107 Rule.
Starting on January 13th, drone enthusiasts who are in the process of acquiring an FAA Drone License (Remote Pilot Certificate) will need to register on the IACRA website. Registering for IACRA will provide you with a unique FAA tracking number that is required before scheduling your exam at an approved FAA Testing Center.
Essentially, the FAA has added one more step to the process for applicants. This is not too complicated, and I’ll walk you through the exact steps on how to do this below.

Once you have your FTN and feel you have the material down, the next step is to schedule an appointment with a Knowledge Testing Center.
The Airman Certificate Testing Service (ACTS) manages pilots of manned and unmanned vehicles.

Until August 29, 2016 the rules and regulations in the U.S. were mostly unstructured in terms of the legality of flying UAV’s. Since then, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has made many strides in making flying drones legal and far safer.
The Altitude University Online Part 107 Course is a test prep course aimed to help drone enthusiasts pass the exam and acquire their FAA Remote Pilot's Certificate (better known as Part 107 License) that will allow you to legally make money flying drones.
The program has been created by Brandon Trentalange who is one of the most popular entrepreneurs in the drone industry. He has over 6+ years of experience flying drones as a professional drone pilot, has consulted top corporations like NASA, Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Syngenta, and helped over 2,000+ drone operators start a career in the industry.
