An indispensable tool for pilots preparing for the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) commercial pilot oral exam, this guide contains the questions most frequently asked of applicants during their one-on-one "checkride” with an FAA examiner and prepares them for the flight review. Exact citations accompany each question and indicate where further reference material can be found in FAA literature.
