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 examiner’s scrutiny. It identifies the candidates’ strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their aeronautical knowledge, which increases study efficiency.
