"I purchased your 2019 Remote Pilot Test Prep (with Supplement) a few months ago and in my spare time used it to prepare for the Part 107 Remote Pilot test. After believing that I had the material down, I took your 5 "on-line practice tests" and only missed one to three on these quizzes. Feeling confident, I finally got the nerve to take the FAA test yesterday and surprisingly passed it with a score of 97%. The two questions I missed were about Foreign Aircraft Registration, and strange worded options for answers regarding an MOA. About 50% of the FAA questions on the test looked like they came right off the ASA Test Prep study guide and the other 50% were different but easy to answer if you know the material. Anyway, just wanted to say that ASA helped me pass the Remote Pilot test and I could not have scored as high as I did without help from studying your material. Thank You!!!"

"Thank you. Just love these products greatly. My students are passing their exams with ease!"
Amelia A.A. Fox

"Bought this book a couple of months ago and started studiyng about 4 weeks before the test. Explanations are simple and easy to understand, and the questions are great examples of what youll see in the actual test. Only did one prep test before preparing and got an 88 on the actual test. Great resource!"
Gabriel R.

"I used this software in 2018 and it was very helpful for passing the Airman's Knowledge test to get my Part 107. I made a 93% on the test and used this software to make sure I was studying all the stuff that would be on the test. I highly recommend this software. There's other sites out there that scare you with prep questions that will never be on the test just to buy their lessons. This company does not do that. It's honest and helpful."
Tim B.

"I have taught two Remote Pilot ground courses using your 2017 Remote Pilot Test Prep Book, and have a 100% success rate! Thanks for a great Prep guide. "
Dave M.

"Kudos on the UAS, Remote Pilot Test Prep, Study & prepare book. I read and studied the material in the book, and took the five (5) practice tests. I passed the FAA Unmanned Aircrat General - Small Exam for the Remote Pilot certificate with a 97%. "
P. Thompson

"I purchased and started using the Test Prep Bundle for Remote Pilot Knowledge Test on June 1st and passed the test on June 26th with an 82%. I really enjoyed using the software and being able to access my progress and study online at any computer. The book was really good when I did not have internet or computer access, plus it looks good on my book shelf. Thanks ASA."

New Codes Coming to Airman Test Reports

The FAA sample questions for the Private Pilot Airplane (PAR) and the Instrument Rating Airplane Airman Knowledge Tests now show two types of codes associated with each question:

  1. The Learning Statement Code (LSC) associated with question topic areas. The Learning Statement codes currently appear on the Airman Knowledge Test Report for any missed knowledge test questions.
  2. The "Airman Certification Standards" (ACS) code for question topic areas. The FAA expects the ACS codes to replace LSCs on the Private and Instrument Airman Knowledge Tests within the next 12 - 18 months.

Airman Certification Standards

Since September 2011, the FAA has worked closely with a diverse group of aviation community stakeholders, including ASA, who convened to help the agency improve the testing/training standards, guidance, and test development/management components of the airman certification process. The industry participants in this effort have developed the Airman Certification Standards (ACS) framework as a way to improve airman training and testing by providing an integrated, holistic system that clearly aligns airman testing with certification standards and guidance. ACS is built on the existing Practical Test Standards (PTS), which explicitly define the performance metrics for each flight proficiency element listed in 14 CFR. The ACS approach enhances the PTS by defining the specific elements, aeronautical knowledge, and risk management awareness needed to support each Area of Operation and Task.

By presenting the elements of knowledge, skill, and risk management in the integrated ACS format, the ACS approach better serves the applicant, the instructor, and the evaluator. In addition, the ACS approach will enable the FAA to create and maintain a clear link between the regulations, knowledge/skill performance standards, guidance, and test materials.

The FAA has accepted the industry group's recommendation to adopt the ACS approach and continues to work with this group to refine the ACS and plan for its eventual implementation. Current endeavors include FAA support for industry efforts to prototype the ACS approach in selected locations.

Airman Certification Standards (ACS) Codes

The overarching goal of the ACS effort is to create an integrated, coherent airman certification system in which standards, guidance, and testing can be aligned and maintained in alignment. This type of symmetry in all materials is key to fully realizing the benefits the ACS system promises to both the FAA and its many stakeholders. It is also the key to conformance with accepted industry standards for certification programs, which require that items to be trained and tested are directly linked to the job/task analysis—in this case, the ACS.

To help achieve this goal, the aviation community experts who developed the ACS have also created a new coding system that will eventually apply to both Airman Knowledge Tests and Practical Test tasks. These codes provide the means to correlate the tasks in the ACS with guidance and testing, and to keep them aligned going forward. When the FAA implements the ACS approach, the ACS codes will supersede the current LSC system, which has become too limited to serve as a mechanism for alignment and too complex to effectively serve the needs of the FAA and the stakeholder community.

The proposed coding system has four elements that are anchored in the ACS and not in reference documents, as are the current LSCs. Examples:

PA . XI . A . K1

  • PA = Identifies the applicable ACS (private pilot airplane)
  • XI = Area of Operation (Night operation)
  • A = Task (Night preparation)
  • K1 = Task element [knowledge (K), skill (S), risk management (R)] (1. Physiological aspects of night flying as it relates to vision)

IR . I . A . K1

  • IR = Identifies the applicable ACS (instrument rating)
  • I = Area of Operation (Preflight preparation)
  • A = Task (Pilot qualifications)
  • K1 = Task element [knowledge (K), skill (S), risk management (R)] (1. When an instrument rating is required)

The ACS-based coding scheme will:

  • Clearly align guidance and test questions to the ACS;
  • Make the airman test report meaningful to stakeholders (applicant, instructor, evaluator);
  • Provide a means for automated generation of tests, whether using the existing test forms or future randomized selections; and
  • Eliminate subjectivity and vastly simplify system management requirements for the FAA.
