Question 4 has 2 correct answers based on the 2018 version of the 107. There is a 2016 version all over the internet as well as state rules. This is a tough question and I will defend my source. In retrospect I wish I had chosen a different question but it is a legitimate question.

Good questions Paul! Thanks for your time!


Good ones Paul!

Thanks you guys. I always enjoy challenging the pros.

  1. b
  2. a
  3. b
  4. b, c

I agree Dave - I picked what I felt was the next best option!:slight_smile:

I have to cancel this group of questions

I apologize but I found conflicting information from the FAA site as well as language that said the rules can be interpreted.

I apologize for this but its not fair to you when you can legitimately argue the answers. The FAA like many government organizations often does make the rules hazy.

According to my official source the answers are:

  1. B
  2. C
  3. B (Now its 5 miles or get permission from the airport)
  4. B,D (This was also changed and has new language including whether the overhead protection is stationary or not)

My latest information comes from a December 2018 update.

Again, I apologize
but I would rather have egg on my face than create an incorrect set of questions.

Questions are closed.

Thanks for your time. I understand how messed up it can be to find the correct questions.
However, It’s no big deal.
We all understand and appreciate all you guys do .

Have a great day.

Thanks Paul for doing all this research. :slight_smile:

Yeah, I did do quite a bit of Googling for this one. I’ll be more careful next time. Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks for the work Paul, it’s been a long winter. Sit back with a great cup of coffee and enjoy the winter.

No problem, it takes work. And, thanks for doing it. :slight_smile:
