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.
The private pilot edition is designed for student pilots training for the private certificate and includes 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 as well as through interviews with 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. It identifies the candidates’ strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their aeronautical knowledge, which increases study efficiency.
Now includes a new chapter on Scenario-Based Training by noted SBT expert, 2009 National Flight Instructor of the Year, Arlynn McMahon. Scenario-based questions have become an integral part of the Practical Test and an important tool in an examiner’s toolbox. Student responses to these “open-ended” questions demonstrate an understanding of the big picture and convey the practical application of what’s important and why.
