Recreational Drone Updates
This weekend, the FAA has commenced the applications regarding the testing of administrators that is a must for everybody. The administrator has to take and pass this particular test in order to create a recreational drone. This test is referred to as TRUST (The Recreational UAS Safety Test). It will need the recreational drone pilots to go through the safety precautions of flying drones and informative educational tips. Even though it is some sort of a hiring done by the FAA, you will be working as a volunteer. Until the 2018 Reauthorization Bill created by the FAA, only the commercial drone pilots had the responsibility of passing this particular test. However, it is now a necessity for all of the recreational drone flyers.
Ways of becoming a TRUST administrator
Things are not as easy for the FAA as it seems regarding the conduction of these tests. Therefore, they are seeking help from the community. If you are thinking that they are seeking help for hiring purposes, you are mistaken. They are doing this to ensure the provision of platforms so that the tests can be conducted without any costs. If you a TRUST test administrator, you will have the aspects as follows.
- Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM)
- Appropriate platform for packaging, executing training methodologies
- Be able to conduct tests free of cost for the recreational drone flyers.
As a TRUST test administrator, you won’t be making the quizzes. Instead, you will provide the content to the FAA-approved test administrators, who will make the final call.
Recreational drones may prove to be something meaningful for the drone enthusiasts around the world. However, the flyers must look into the detail surrounding these drones, provided by the FAA.
