ASA Remote Pilot
This ACS became effective April 6, 2021.
The ACS integrates the elements of knowledge and risk management in 14 CFR part 107 for a Remote Pilot Certificate with an sUAS rating. It forms the comprehensive standard for what an applicant must know and consider to successfully complete each Task tested on the knowledge test.
In keeping with this integrated and systematic approach, the knowledge Task elements of each Task identify what the applicant must know and understand for sUAS operations conducted under part 107. The applicant demonstrates this understanding by passing the knowledge test.
Major enhancements to this edition include updates to the "Airman Certification Standards Concept" subsection, and the addition of several knowledge elements related to operating rules, operations over people, remote identification (RID), airspace operational requirements, airport operations, emergency procedures, physiology, and maintenance and inspection procedures.
