Contains the questions most frequently asked by FAA examiners during the airplane checkride, and the appropriate responses.
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 to be 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.
This edition for CFI applicants includes "Fundamentals of Instruction" questions covering the subjects from the FAA's Aviation Instructor's Handbook (FAA-H-8083-9). The latest Practical Test Standards are accounted for, including the new flight maneuvers "steep spirals" and "180-degree power-off approach." References are included with each explanation for the reader to research further as necessary. Additional Study Questions conclude each section, so the reader can be certain they've mastered a topic before moving on to the next subject. Also includes a reprint of Advisory Circular 61-65E "Certification: Pilots, Flight and Ground Instructors" with current endorsements, and an Applicant's Practical Test Checklist. Soft cover, 307 pp.
