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. This revised edition—which features important FAA regulatory, procedural, and training updates—examines topics such as weather, airplane systems, emergency procedures, cross-country flight planning, aeromedical factors, and commercial flight maneuvers.
