About your Examiner

MORE DETAILS:

  • Please let the examiner know in advance if the aircraft will be changing.​
  • The aircraft must be suitable for the practical exam. For example, if conducting an instrument exam, the aircraft must be capable of the required instrument approaches.
  • NOTE: Multiengine airplanes MUST be capable of performing all required maneuvers in the ACS. If the ACS requires a shut down and restart, the aircraft must be capable of performing this.


EFB USE:


EFB usage will be allowed to meet all ACS tasks, but the GPS function must be turned off as you will be evaluated on your use of approved equipment for navigation. All equipment in the airplane is allowed to be used, however you may be evaluated on use of ground based navigation (VOR, etc) as well as pilotage/dead reckoning for a portion of the practical exam. If using an EFB, it is recommended that you also bring a form of backup, in the event of a failure of your EFB. All electronic devices must comply with 91.21.


PAYMENT:


Payment can be made with an electronic transfer (wire, Zelle) or cash. Credit cards may be used for an additional 5%.
