how long ago did it expire? Class 3 Medical Reform passed as a law (don't recall when it goes into effect). But you do not need a Class 3 Medical anymore to be a Private Pilot.

I'm interested as well for more info on the subject of this thread.

I let it expire 7 years ago never revoked. I did not know of that provision, I know that flight surgeons are fighting it because it is an easy 200 bucks per ticket.

Yes I am now rated for commercial applications.
You can start your sUAS certification ratting with the FAA. All the info you need is there. PM me if you need help navigating the process.

want to post a link? Heard yesterday on Nightly Business Report they've permitted under 55lbs and non commercial use as before the fuss and now require a $150 test for commercial uas license for under 55lb "small" uas use, is that true and what's the test about anyway?

forget it, a lot of the links to the important stuff was found in these sites, http://uavcoach.com/drone-certification/ http://thedronegirl.com/2016/06/21/...res-can-expect/ searched it myself using the title.

and as far as nbr was concerned, they reported the prediction of business income numbers in the b word.

Class 3 medical news

https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media...orm-becomes-law

If medical has lapsed more than 10 years you will still have to jump through the medical exam hoop one more time.
If you think you will fail, may have to continue to operate with the existing LSA rules, day flight, 2 persons, VFR and aircraft less than 1320 lbs.

Took my UAG today also, passed with a 90%. Overall I felt the test was easier than I expected. I did spend about 30-40 hour of study over a two week period.

If you plan to take the test do yourself a favor and study, study, study.

Study.

Are you a part 61 pilot? Or did your TSA back ground check go through that fast?

I went part 61. I spent more money by renewing my 10-year expired BFR, but I had a lot more fun than studying for and taking the AKT. I took a Gliem Flight Review Course for $30 and the BFR flight prep and sign off flight was over $500. All worth it to me

Thursday I met with a local DPE and he signed me off in IACRA for an instant certificate. Easy day.

Nice!

It's been a long time coming, For me another 4-8 weeks waiting on background check.

Best of luck!

You should get an email from IACRA saying your temp certificate is ready to print within 72 hours. However, folks are reporting much longer. You won't get the real plastic card until your vetting is complete, which will be 4-8 weeks.

I have been studying for the test and I was wondering if there are any questions related to Lithium Batteries in any way? Thanks.

One more question. I have printed out the Remote Pilot-Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems Study Guide http://www.faa.gov/regulations_poli...study_guide.pdf from the FAA website and seems to cover quite a bit and extensive. Is that the right guide to study from for the whole test or do I need other material? Thank you.
