Written to help prepare applicants for their oral exams with FAA examiners. Using a question-and-answer format, each Oral Exam Guide lists the questions most likely to be asked by examiners and provides succinct, ready responses. Pilots will find these Guides indispensable tools in both planning for what to expect during the airplane checkride, and mastering the subject matter. Instructors rate them as excellent preparation for students, as well as preps for Instrument Proficiency Checks (IPCs), aircraft transitions, and as general refresher material.
Chapters are dedicated to certificates and documents, weather, determining performance and limitations, airplane systems, cross-country flight planning, night operations, and aeromedical factors. References for further study are provided throughout the book, and additional study questions conclude each chapter. Answers and explanations were researched using FAA documents (which are identified so readers know where to go for further study) as well as interviewing FAA examiners. This book teaches applicants not only what to expect, but also how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence when under the examiner's scrutiny. This book will identify the candidates' strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their aeronautical knowledge, increasing study efficiency. Soft cover, 208 pages.
