The Unmanned Safety Institute (USI), a leader in remote pilot safety education, training, and certification, has partnered with BarCharts Publishing, Inc. to provide remote pilots with a durable guide outlining rules and concepts for the commercial operation of small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS).
BarCharts Publishing has been publishing quick-reference materials for customers around the world for nearly 30 years. It has produced more than 600 QuickStudy laminated quick-reference guides in a variety of subjects which are available at more over 15,000 retail locations, including school bookstores, groceries stores, and major book retailers.
The part 107 guide was created using content found on the UAG Remote Pilot Knowledge Test, more commonly referred to as the part 107 exam. The guide covers all areas of knowledge that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires remote pilots be versed in and includes concepts, definitions, and images associated with the following areas:
- Applicable regulations
- Airspace classification, operating requirements, and flight restrictions
- Maintenance and preflight inspection procedures
- Aviation weather source and effects of weather on small unmanned aircraft performance
- Small unmanned aircraft loading
- Crew resource management
- Radio communication procedures
- Determining the performance of small unmanned aircraft
- Physiological factors affecting pilot performance
- Aeronautical decision-making and judgement
- Airport operations
The guide provides an affordable turnkey solution as a study guide for remote pilots that are looking to earn their Part 107 Certificate and a quick-reference field manual for current Part 107 pilots while they’re on the job. The 8 1/2″ x 11″, three-panel, six-page guide is laminated and in full color, creating a durable and easy-to-read reference guide that is the perfect size for a binder or standard folder. The Part 107 Quick Study Guide & Field Manual retails for $19.95 and can currently be purchased through the Unmanned Safety Institute’s online shop. In the future, the guide will be available for purchase through BarCharts Publishing, Inc retailers nationwide.
