Becoming a sUAS (Drone) Pilot

There are two (2) routes to becoming a sUAS Pilot: Recreational and Part 107.

C.A.P. Ratings must be completed in accordance with CAPR 70-4.

The first sections are hyperlinked to the corresponding F.A.A. page.

sUAS Recreational Pilot

Recreational Pilots in C.A.P. can offer Aerospace Education of a similar area to cadets after completing the required training and forms.

Recreational Pilots cannot serve as P.I.C.s on missions unless service as a UASMP Trainee.

Persons seeking to become a recreational pilot are required to complete and pass the F.A.A. T.R.U.S.T. offered by one of the F.A.A. approved vendors.  The T.R.U.S.T. is offered free of charge.  

IF YOU LOSE YOUR T.R.U.S.T. CERTIFICATE, YOU MUST RETAKE THE T.R.U.S.T.!

NOTE: C.A.P. does not offer the T.R.U.S.T., nor does it endorse any of the vendors.

F.A.A. Part 107 Licensed Pilot

sUAS Pilots licensed under the F.A.A. Part 107 may become an UASMP.  Completing T.R.U.S.T. is not a prerequisite for completing the FAA Part 107.
