The Remote Pilot—Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) Airman Certification Standard (ACS) document communicates the aeronautical knowledge standards for a Remote Pilot Certificate with an sUAS rating.
The ACS integrates the elements of knowledge and risk management in 14 CFR part 107 for a Remote Pilot Certificate with an sUAS rating. It forms the comprehensive standard for what an applicant must know and consider to successfully complete each Task tested on the knowledge test.
In keeping with this integrated and systematic approach, the knowledge Task elements of each Task identify what the applicant must know and understand for sUAS operations conducted under part 107. The applicant demonstrates this understanding by passing the knowledge test.
