Updated to reflect
the latest regulations and procedures, including the proposed new
regulations dealing with crew fatigue (Part 117).
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. An excellent study tool for pilots gearing up
for their checkride, airman check, or interview. Flight instructors
find these an indispensable part of the test preparation process,
teaching ATP candidates how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence
when under the examiners scrutiny.
All the subjects an ATP candidate will be tested on during
checkrides, career interviews, and aircraft transition rides are
covered. Chapters are dedicated to turbine aircraft theory, performance
and limitations, airline operational procedures, aeronautical decision
making (ADM) and crew resource management (CRM), regulations, and
This guide concludes with 2 appendices that contain questions and
answers candidates can expect on an airline-type ride, concerning
aircraft systems and limitations. All the information in these
appendices is specific to the Beechcraft 1900C aircraft, so pilots can
learn the basic components and principles for the type of turboprop
aircraft found in many of todays regional airline fleets. This section
may also be used as a workbook, with space provided so readers can
reference their airplane operating manual to fill in the blanks to the
same questions asked about the BE1900C.
Answers and explanations were researched using FAA documents (and are
identified so readers know where to go for further study on any given
question) as well as through interviews with a variety of airline
pilots, 121/135 operators, and examiners. The ATP Oral Exam Guide
teaches applicants not only what to expect, but also how to exhibit
subject mastery and confidence when theyre under the examiners
scrutiny. It identifies the candidates' strengths, weaknesses, and gaps
in their aeronautical knowledge, which increases study efficiency.
