Did you know that under certain conditions those who hold a Part 107 Remote PIC certificate must undergo recurrent testing?
The requirement for the recurrent test is spelled out in 14 CFR 107.65:
§107.65 Aeronautical knowledge recency.
A person may not operate a small unmanned aircraft system unless that person has completed one of the following, within the previous 24 calendar months:
(a) Passed an initial aeronautical knowledge test covering the areas of knowledge specified in §107.73(a);
(b) Passed a recurrent aeronautical knowledge test covering the areas of knowledge specified in §107.73(b); or
(c) If a person holds a pilot certificate (other than a student pilot certificate) issued under part 61 of this chapter and meets the flight review requirements specified in §§61.56, passed either an initial or recurrent training course covering the areas of knowledge specified in §107.74(a) or (b) in a manner acceptable to the Administrator.
Here is the section in the Remote PIC Airmen Certification Standards (ACS) that describes the testing requirement:
Recurrent Knowledge Test Description
The recurrent knowledge test is an important part of ensuring that airmen who hold a remote pilot certificate with
sUAS rating can operate safety in the National Airspace System (NAS). Recurrent testing is required for Airmen
who do not hold a pilot certificate that was issued under 14 CFR part 61. The recurrent test is also required for
airmen who do hold a pilot certificate that was issued under 14 CFR part 61, but do not have a current Flight
Review as per 14 CFR part 61, section, 61.56.
14 CFR 107.73 and 107.74 describe the subject matter required of the recurrent test and the requirements of a recurrent training course.
