This Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Remote Pilot – Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Airman Certification Standards (ACS) document provides the aeronautical knowledge standards for remote pilot certification in the small unmanned aircraft system (sUAS) category. This ACS incorporates and supersedes the previous Airman Certification Standards FAA-S-ACS-10.
The Airman Certification Standard is the guide for students, instructors, and evaluators to understand what applicants must know, do, and consider to pass their FAA Knowledge Exam and practical (checkride) and earn their pilot certificate or rating.
