It should be the category 4.
A small UA must be managed in such a manner where
Correct answer: does not endanger the life or property of another.
A small UA must be operated in a manner which does not endanger the life or property of another.
Moisture is added into the air by:
Correct answer: evaporation and sublimation.
Moisture is added to air by evaporation and sublimation.
You've been assigned to survey an area that falls under Class C airspace. Which of the following must be completed prior to beginning the operations?
Correct answer: Request for airspace authorization via LAANC or the FAA DroneZone
The advent of the LAANC system has made obtaining authorization to fly in controlled airspace easier for Part 107-licensed drone pilots. This means that a waiver request that contains details on the planned operations, the anticipated risks, and the related mitigation measures is no longer required. Drone pilots no longer need to contact the concerned ATC of the controlled airspace because requests made through LAANC are consolidated by the FAA. Instead, the FAA will be the one to notify them of the details of your operation. This makes the process easier for both the FAA and drone operators.
What value does the Weather Depiction Chart have for the pilot?
Correct answer: For determining general weather conditions on which to base flight planning.
The weather depiction chat is for determining general weather conditions on which to base flight planning.
You intend to launch golf balls from your small UA at a height of 100 feet above ground level. You must make certain that the objects being dropped will
Correct answer: not create an undue hazard to persons or property. [Section 107.23 says, “No person may: … (b) Allow an object to be dropped from a small unmanned aircraft in a manner that creates an undue hazard to persons or property.”]
Letter A is the correct answer.
Which of the following types of operations are exempt from the 14 CFR part 107 requirements?
Correct answer: When the sUAS weighs less than .55 lbs.
When the sUAS weighs less than .55 lbs., it is a excluded requirement in 14 CFR part 107.
Drone activities from a moving vehicle are only permitted under Part 107 guidelines if the following conditions are met:
Correct answer: It is done over a sparsely populated area
Based on Rule 107.25, operations of a drone from a moving vehicle, whether on land or at water, is generally prohibited. The only exception is if it is done over a sparsely populated area. The FAA has no guidelines on what constitutes a “sparsely populated” area, stating only that such circumstances will be evaluated on a case-per-case basis.
During one of your small UA's flights, you notice a hot air balloon approaching the area. You need to
Correct answer: yield the right-of-way to the hot air balloon.
When a hot air balloon entering your area, yield the right-of-way to the hot air balloon.
Your client requests you to go outdoors after dinner and wine to demonstrate the small UA's capabilities. You should
Correct answer: not operate a small UA within 8 hours of consuming any alcoholic beverage. [8 hours bottle to throttle. Doesn’t matter if you aren’t even buzzed or if the alcohol has got into your system yet.]
Letter B is the right answer.
The ____________ provide the most comprehensive information about a certain airport:
Correct answer: The Chart Supplements U.S. (formerly Airport Facility Directory).
The most comprehensive information available on a given airport is provided by the Chart Supplements U.S. (formerly Airport Facility Directory).
What is the minimum age requirement for obtaining a Part 107 remote pilot certificate?
Correct answer: 16
The minimum age for a person to be eligible is 16.
When winds of 40 knots or more blow _____________, possible mountain wave turbulence can be expected.
Correct answer: across a mountain ridge, and the air is stable.
Possible mountain wave turbulence could be anticipated when winds of 40 knots or greater blow across a mountain ridge, and the air is stable.
For operating in certain airspace, prior authorization is required. How may a remote pilot operate an unmanned aircraft in class C airspace, according to 14 CFR part 107?
Correct answer: The remote pilot must have prior authorization from the Air Traffic Control (ATC) facility having jurisdiction over that airspace. [You are going to have to have an airspace waiver. §107.41 says, “No person may operate a small unmanned aircraft in Class B, Class C, or Class D airspace or within the lateral boundaries of the surface area of Class E airspace designated for an airport unless that person has prior authorization from Air Traffic Control (ATC).” The FAA is handling those authorizations via a waiver process currently. Let me know if you need one! ]
Before operating an unmanned aircraft system, a remote pilot must consider several factors, including safety. A remote pilot must consider which methodology to avoid the final "link" in the accident chain.
Correct answer: Risk Management
To prevent the final “link” in the accident chain, a remote pilot must consider the risk management.
Your drone is involved in an accident and crashes while doing a commercial drone operation. Which of the following outcomes does the FAA not require you to report?
Correct answer: A minor injury to a person that needs to be addressed with first aid
Section 107.9 outlines the reporting requirements for Part 107 drone pilots. Among the events that need to be reported to the FAA within 10 days are accidents that result in serious personal injury or loss of consciousness, or property damage that costs more than $500 to repair. In our case, only option A (minor injury) is exempted from the reporting requirements.
What reference used by an air traffic controller for issuing radar traffic information in relation to the 12-hour clock ?
Correct answer: ground track.
The controller uses the aircraft's ground track.
You've been recruited to inspect the railroad tracks between Blencoe (SE of Sioux City) and Onawa with your small UAS. Will the ATC's authorization be required?
Correct answer: No, your entire flight is in Class G airspace.
Military Training Routes, also known as VFR Military Training Routes (VR) and IFR Military Training Routes (IR), are designed to provide the highest level of practical safety for all flying operations while allowing the military to:
Correct answer: low-altitude high speed training.
The purpose of Military Training Routes is also to allow military to conduct low-altitude high speed training.
How long do your rights as a licensed pilot last after earning the Part 107 remote pilot certificate before you have to go through recurrent training?
Correct answer: 24 calendar months
While the remote pilot certificate itself has no expiration date, the privileges granted to you to operate commercially are only valid for 24 calendar months after the date on your initial written exam results. This means that you need to pass a recurrent knowledge test or go through recurrent training (if you have a Part 61 pilot certificate) before you can continue to operate your drone for profit.
What's the difference between Area A and Area E on the diagrammed airport?
Correct answer: "A" may be used for taxi and takeoff; "E" may be used only as an overrun.
Letter C is the right answer.
For aircraft operations, pre-flight familiarization, inspection, and actions are required. Who is responsible for determining the performance of a small unmanned aircraft, according to 14 CFR part 107?
Correct answer: Remote pilot-in-command. [See 107.19. Learn the short version of this regulation. “If anything goes wrong, it is most likely the PIC’s fault.” You shouldn’t let anyone force you into flying somewhere or doing something you feel is unsafe. You are getting the whacking if anything goes wrong, not them.].
While flying our drone at night, you see a manned aircraft. A red flashing light is on the left, while a green flashing light is on the right. In which direction is the plane flying?
Correct answer: The airplane is heading away from you.
Two airports are enclosed by blue broken lines in a sectional chart, as indicated by the blue arrows in the figure. What do these blue broken lines mean?
Correct answer: Class D airspace starting at the surface
In this case, the broken blue lines refer to the boundaries of Class D airspace.
In contrast to Class B and Class airspace that can have pre-determined floors, Class D airspace always starts at the surface. They usually have a ceiling of 2500 feet but can extend higher. For our example, the bracketed 36 in the center of the figure means that this patch of Class D airspace extends up to 3600 feet.
What does "SHRA" stand for in the KMEM TAF?
Correct answer: Rain showers.
SHRA means rain showers.
