Overview

Written to help prepare pilot-license applicants for their oral exams with FAA examiners, this manual lists the questions most likely to be asked by examiners and provides succinct responses. This reference teaches applicants not only what to expect, but also how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence when under the examiner's scrutiny. It also identifies the applicants' strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their aeronautical knowledge, which increases study efficiency. This study guide is divided into four question-and-answer sections which examine flight planning, departure, en route, and arrival issues. Subtopics covered include preflight action for aircraft, the gyroscopic system, fundamentals of weather, and precision approaches. Revised to reflect important FAA regulatory, procedural, and training changes, this book has a new appendix detailing the Instrument Proficiency Check and an Internet element that provides additional tools and resources.
