We just passed the FAA’s TRUST test. Here’s how to take it!

As we reported the other day, the FAA’s TRUST test is here. TRUST stands for The Recreational UAS Safety Test, and it’s mandatory for all hobbyists/non-commercial drone pilots. We thought we should give it a spin.

So the TRUST test is here. And before long, hobbyists and recreational pilots are expected to carry a paper or electronic copy showing they’ve passed the test (along with registration, for drones weighing 250+ grams) when out flying. We thought it would be a good idea to take the free test, and get a refresher at the same time.

It was painless.

You really couldn’t ask for a simpler test of skills assessment. The test is structured with knowledge sections, following by mini-quizzes. If you get something wrong, you can take the same quiz over. The knowledge requirements are basic – nowhere near as robust as writing the Part 107 Exam – but do contain all of the basic types of information that a recreational pilot needs to know.

Many of you…
