TRUST Test is ready and available online

All those who fly any type of RC (not just drones) are now required to take this flight test. That includes Part 107 operators, etc. But don't fret, it's a simple, online test available through the AMA website. YOU CAN'T FAIL THIS TEST! Upon conclusion you will receive a print out card that you must have readily available for Law Enforcement or FAA inspection.

Welcome to The Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST). This is the Federal Aviation Administration’s course for those who intend to operate Unmanned Aircraft Systems, commonly called “drones”, under the Exception for Limited Recreational Operations of Unmanned Aircraft ( 49 United States Code §44809). For the purpose of this course, the term “drone” includes a variety of aircraft such as remote controlled (RC) airplanes, RC helicopters, and quad-copters.

Because drones can be very simple to fly, it is easy to think that there is not much risk in flying one. The reality is, drones have collided with other aircraft, injured people, and caused property damage.

That is why safety is everyone’s responsibility. This course is designed to provide you with information that will help you fly safely and keep our nation’s airspace safe for everyone.

We are excited to have you join the world of aviation!
