In the 1980s the Federal Aviation Administration adopted a new standard
for all oral and flight tests leading to pilot certification. This new
standard was named the Practical Test Standard and was designed to
accomplish the following objectives:
1) To provide guidance to Examiners with regard to the content of a
thorough Practical Test
2) To provide all applicants and all Examiners with a set of completion
standards for the Practical Test.
These are laudable goals, and the FAA is to be congratulated for
The FAA-published version of the Glider
Pilot Practical Test Standards lists topic areas and completion
standards. However, in accordance with long-established FAA examination

knowledge areas but does very little to help you discover what it is
about each knowledge area that you must know. As a result, many
applicants feel they are "in the dark" as they try to prepare for the
Practical Test. This means that lots of time is wasted. And that's
regrettable, because wiser use of that time would result in a stronger
performance on the Practical Test.
Commercial Pilot Glider Checkride Made Easy helps you prepare for your
Practical Test by providing you with hundreds of sample questions and
answers, tips, and suggestions on how to prepare for your checkride. It
also provides you with dozens of useful tips on how to conduct yourself
and how to handle sticky situations which may develop during the
checkride. In short, Commercial Pilot Glider Checkride Made Easy guides
your review as you prepare for the checkride. It also teaches you what
to do, and what not to do, during the checkride.
Commercial Pilot Glider Checkride Made Easy contains all important
features of the FAA-published version of the Practical Test Standards.
The new information I provide for you makes it much easier for you to
prepare for the Practical Test and to demonstrate your knowledge and
your airmanship to the Examiner on the Big Day.
I hope that this book helps you make your dream of motorless flight come
