Answer: A. 400 feet
Answer: C. They may continue to follow the Section 333 exemption conditions and limitations (A Section 333 exemption remains valid until it expires. An operator may continue to fly following the conditions and limitations in the exemption. If the operation can be conducted under the requirements of Part 107, the operator may elect to fly under that rule. If an operator chooses to fly under Part 107, he/she must obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate and follow all the operating rules of Part 107.)
Answer: D. Yes, if they intend to operate under Part 107, the pilot needs a Remote Pilot Certificate (If they intend to operate under Part 107, the pilot will need to obtain a Remote Pilot Certificate. If someone already has a pilot certificate and has had a successful flight review in the last 24 months, they can go to faasafety.gov to complete the remote pilot training course. They don’t have to take the knowledge test.)
Answer: D. A Remote Pilot Certificate is good for 24 months.
