Why an e-Book and not a printed book?
The UAV/UAS/RPA/”drone” world is rapidly evolving and changing. With an E-Book we can update and revise the material whenever conditions warrant, and we will continue to do so as new resources and information become available. New updates and revisions include material based on reports from our students who passed the exam, including a stronger emphasis on aeronautical charts.

5stars(5 out of 5 stars) By Drone Radio Show on April 24, 2016

Tim Trott does a great job synthesizing the key knowledge requirements of the proposed FAA Part 107 rules. Overall, I think the book is great for anyone wanting to begin studying and preparing for what might be required when the rules take effect. Even without Part 107, the information should be helpful for any UAS pilot to know. I found the first part of the book (where Tim runs through the material that might be required under the new rule) very informative, but a little overwhelming. But that’s only because I’m not a commercial pilot and there’s a lot of detail packed into the first 60 pages. It may take a few reads to master the material, but that’s to be expected with any study guide. The real gem in the book are the practice questions. The questions provide a great study aid in understanding the material and retaining it. The information, coupled with the study questions, provide a great learning tool.
