Practice Part 107 Test Questions for the Remote Pilot Knowledge Test

These practice Part 107 test questions are designed to be very hard. The questions are the “fill in the blank” type to force you to study. Remember that I have a “beginner” article answering and explaining the 41 other FAA Part 107 sample questions that the FAA issued. These questions are designed to be taken AFTER you have studied those other 41 questions.

This is a great opportunity for you and your study buddies to dig around and find these answers .The answers are there, you just have to find them. 🙂 I would highly suggest going back to the resources listed in the Free Part 107 Test Study Guide For FAA Remote Pilot Airmen Certificate.  Ctrl + F, appendix, index, table of contents, etc. are your friends.

This is like what baseball players do before they go to bat. They practice with a heavy weight on the bat. The same thing applies here. You most likely will not get all the questions below. I would be happy if you just get like 5 of them. That is OK. Do not get discouraged.

The point of this test is to force you to get familiar with searching for answers.
