Part 107 is shorthand for 14 CFR Part 107, which is one section of the federal regulations governing the FAA, specifically its Air Traffic and General Operating Rules. Part 107 lists all of the rules and requirements for commercial operation of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS), better known as drones.

Anyone operating under Part 107 on behalf of public organizations must take the FAA Aeronautical Knowledge Exam pertaining to unmanned aircraft. This is also known as the Part 107 knowledge test or the UAG exam. For more information on the Part 107 exam, including renewing your Part 107, see our previous post all about the Part 107 exam.
