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 guide Examiners regarding 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 pursuing them.
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 policies, the FAA-published version of
the Standards does NOT provide practice exams or answers to study
questions. In fact it does not provide any study questions or answers at
all. Instead the FAA simply chose to provide lists of appropriate ground
study areas and in-flight maneuvers. The FAA's approach to the Practical
Test Standards identifies target 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.
Flight Instructor 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, Flight Instructor 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.
Flight Instructor 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.
Best wishes for many happy hours of teaching and sharing the wonder and
thrill of motorless flight!
