UAV Licence exam


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I've been putting this off as it looks a little daunting for me.
For someone with no (technical) flying experience, and studying the available Information, how hard are these exams?
What happens if you have an older UAV like a Phantom 3, or Inspire 1?
Thanks.

Re: UAV Licence exam

If you have studied give it a shot, I am sure you will pass. Wide variety of questions such as weather, flight theory, TC rules and safety. While doing the exam I used Goggle and the TC study guide, so really it is a open book exam.

Re: UAV Licence exam

Yeah, I should get off my a**, read the material and do it.
At least the test can be done more than once.

Re: UAV Licence exam

Just scan the material and give it a shot. You have 90 mins and I did it 30, I never studied and got 79%. Pass is 65%

Are you going for basic or advanced?

Basic is pretty easy.

Advanced is a lot harder if you have not reviewed the material and studied.

Re: UAV Licence exam

Like Max said. I wrote the basic, it was easy I thought, but I have been flying for many years. I wrote the advanced and it was hard, I took a course which was about 20 hours, I passed both. Be prepared if you write advanced.

Re: UAV Licence exam

Have a separate screen or laptop handy when you do the exam, you can load up all the reference material on your second screen and have Google handy. The basic test was a little tough for me, everyone gets a different mix of questions, it seemed like all of mine were for fixed wing real aircraft, however, I was done and passed in 55 minutes. I am contemplating the advanced... now that I am retired I have more time to study. Best of luck!

if you have MAAC and your property is something like a large field, then you are technically flying under "MAAC Rules" and are exempt from Transport Canada regulations (you can thank MAAC for that! ) If that is the case, you do not need to register your drone nor have a basic RPAS pilot certificate. BUT, you do have to fly by theMAAC safety code and also have a label with your MAAC number and MAAC website and/or MAAC phone number on the craft (inside or outside the model)
