  • New 'Online' Recurrent Exam??

    Posted by mavic_leader on September 8, 2020 at 3:25 pm

    Hey Everyone! I just took my recurrent exam about 8 months ago so I’m good for a while but one of my friends says is about to renew and said that we can take the recurrent test online now? Is that true? If so, where do we sign up?

    That’s a great question!

    Due to COVID-19, a lot of PSI testing centers shut down. In response, the FAA published a Supplemental FAR (SFAR) that provided some relief from the knowledge recency requirements set forth in § 107.65.

    If your 24 month clock expired between April 1 and September 30th of this year, you can take an online course to get a 6 month extension on your currency.

    After that, you’ll have to take the full Recurrent Knowledge Exam again to reset your clock.

    Awesome, thanks! I just shared this info with my friend. Would the Drone Academy Recurrent Knowledge Course help him prepare for this online exam?

    They could take the course to prepare but they don’t really need to. ALC515 is actually a refresher course itself and will walk you through some of the material before you take the quiz. All in alll, it’s a pretty painless process, takes less than an hour if you’re just brushing up.
