The new FAA regulations regarding drones are now in effect, and if you plan to incorporate drones into your photography business, you've got to pass the FAA's aeronautical knowledge test (the "Drone Test")... which means it's time to start studying!

As we learned from PPA member Eddie Tapp, M.Photog.MEI.Cr., CPP, API, who passed his Drone Test on the first try, the test is formidable and goes deep into some pretty technical areas of being a pilot of a flying aircraft. 

To ensure that you study information that thoroughly covers the varied topics on the test, PPA recommends that you bookmark the FAA's extensive suggested study materials! See below:


See this post for more quick tips about taking the test, including eligibility to take the test, approved testing centers, and more. 

Once you pass, then it's time to register your drone and take your business to new heights! (See what we did there?) 

For all things drone-related, be sure to visit PPA.com/Drones, which will be continually updated with resources, webinars, tips, insurance (which PPA covers in PhotoCare Plus!), a community of other drone photographers to network with, and much more!
