This thread is just for those who have already passed their Part 107 RPIC test and are coming up on their 24 month time period to become current again.

Here's a great video by one of our sponsors Gold Seal giving some pertinent information about the P107 Recurrent Test.


If you are a Part 61 operator AND you are CURRENT then you only need to take the ONLINE test and PASS it! Print it off and add it to you "On Person" documents in case you get a Ramp Check.

Just finished my recurrent test, couple of notes. Like it says I did not see any weather questions. Lots of airspace questions. Know your sectional charts. (Victory/federal airways) The 3DR online test prep is a good resource, go through all the questions. You might recognize a question, but pay attention to what is being asked. They change up the longitude/latitude for different answers.
It is my understanding that you must keep all the certified paperwork because FAA doesn't issue any recert documents. Somehow it is on file if your cert is checked, but I don't know where. IACRA doesn't show it.
Fly safe.

Just to avoid confusion, they are victor airways.

Great point. Imagine my surprise when I saw Federal Airways on the test. The question referenced a sectional chart, and the route was very clear.

As we talk about testing, be aware that several changes in testing, especially for those desiring to fly at night and over people, are in the works to correlate with possible changes in the FAA 107 regulations which are being discussed now. If you want to look at the new proposed rules and see how to comment, go to Regulations.gov

That was an interesting read. Thanks for the link!

Big Al, do you think the new rules will change the content of the recurrent test?

Honestly I don't think so as they aren't related at all that I can tell. Now when new "allowances/rules" for Part 107 come about that will affect the re-current test for sure but for now this is Section 349 changes and not Part 107.

Thanks. I have a year and a half to go, so hopefully I can take advantage of some good feedback from people take any sort of revised test.
