Practical Test Standard References

Practical Test Standard References

I have tracked down links to all the references used in creating the PTS. You can find all the information covered in the PTS by following each link to the FAA resource. Download the material and save it on your computer. After reviewing the applicable material you can create answers based on FAA material for every bullet point in the PTS. This allows you to create answers ahead of time for the oral portion of the practical test. If you take your laptop with this material to the test you will be prepared with all the resources you need to answer the Designated Pilot Examiners questions and successfully complete the oral portion of the test.
