The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is expanding its requirements for pilots to operate a drone in the U.S. This week, it released a new training program all U.S. drone pilots must pass if they want to fly a drone — commercially and recreationally.
Known as the Recreational UAS Safety Test (TRUST), this test must be taken if you want to fly a drone over 0.55 pounds (249 grams). This requirement applies to everyone. So, even if you fly your drone non-commercially, you have to take the test to fly it legally.
