Now includes a new chapter on Scenario-Based Training
by noted SBT expert, 2009 National Flight Instructor of the Year, and
recipient of the 2010 NATA Award for Excellence in Pilot Training, Arlynn McMahon.
Scenario-based questions have become an integral part of the
Practical Test and an important tool in an examiners toolbox. Student
responses to these open-ended questions demonstrate an understanding
of the big picture and convey the practical application of whats
important and why. This new chapter provides insight into these
scenario-based questions and will be invaluable to students preparing
for their checkride.
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. Pilots will find these Guides indispensable
tools in both planning for what to expect during the airplane checkride,
and mastering the subject matter. Instructors rate them as excellent
preparation for students, as well as preps for flight reviews, aircraft
transitions, and as general refresher material.
The Private Oral Exam Guide is designed for student pilots
training for the Private Pilot Certificate. All the subjects a Private
Pilot candidate will be tested on during checkrides and review flights
are covered. Chapters are dedicated to certificates and documents,
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 (which are identified
so readers know where to go for further study) 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 examiners
scrutiny. It identifies the candidates strengths, weaknesses, and gaps
in their aeronautical knowledge, which increases study efficiency.
