Sporty’s Study Buddy – Now for Drone Pilots

Written test prep app joins popular Study Buddy line

Those studying for the FAA Knowledge Test to earn a Remote Pilot Certificate now have a great resource from Sporty’s. Drone Study Buddy is a new app that includes study resources and interactive practice tests, with questions, answers and detailed explanations written by Sporty’s team of flight instructors.

“This app is built on the proven and popular Study Buddy platform that has helped tens of thousands of pilots prepare for their FAA tests,” says Sporty’s Academy President Eric Radtke. “The Drone Study Buddy will prepare you for the Remote Pilot written like no other study tool available.”

The app includes four sections that help prospective pilots learn important information, then test that knowledge with interactive sessions.

Study Resources organizes a variety of review material, including the Small UAS Study Guide, the Small UAS Airman Certification Standards, relevant Advisory Circulars and helpful links.

Learning Mode allows you to create custom review sessions by selecting specific categories you want to review. Each session randomly generates the question order, and provides instant feedback based on your answer selection. Each question also provides a detailed description as to why each answer is right.

Flashcard Mode tests your knowledge by allowing you to only see the question without the answer choices. After answering the question mentally, you can then select to show the correct answer, and self-grade your progress along the way.

Test Mode randomly generates a 60-question session from the entire database of test questions, simulating the real Remote Pilot test with a two hour time limit. After answering all the questions, you’ll be given instant results, and have the option to review either all the questions, or just missed questions. Included in the review session are the same detailed explanations for why each answer is correct.

“We’ll also give you a progress report so you can track previous test sessions and know what areas require more study on your part,” adds Radtke.

Sporty’s Drone Study Buddy App works on iPad and iPhone, and is available for $19.99 in the iTunes App Store.
