The Ninth Edition of the ASA Commercial Pilot Oral Exam Guide by Michael D. Hayes will help prepare applicants for their commercial oral exam and checkride with FAA examiners. This edition has been updated to reflect the Airman Certification Standards and new questions and references have been added throughout. Also, a new appendix includes Advisory Circular (AC) 120-12 Private Carriage vs Common Carriage of Persons or Property. Using a question-and-answer format, this guide lists the questions most likely to be asked by examiners and provides succinct, ready responses. Commercial pilot applicants will find this to be an indispensable tool in both planning for what to expect during the airplane checkride, and mastering the subject matter. Instructors rate them as excellent preparation for students, as well as for aircraft transitions and as general refresher material.
Thorough explanations of pilot responsibilities, technical subject areas and the required maneuvers—including steep spirals and power-off accuracy approach/landings—are covered in this simulated oral test format. Other topics include Aeronautical Decision Making and Cockpit Resource Management (ADM and CRM), dealing with situational awareness and the use of checklists. This revised edition also features a new chapter on “Scenario-Based Training” by Arlynn McMahon (author of Train Like You Fly and Lesson Plans, recipient of the 2009 Flight Instructor of the Year Award, and 2010 NATA Award for Excellence in Pilot Training).
Additional study questions are included at the conclusion of each chapter to further aid learning. Answers were researched using FAA documents as well as interviews with FAA examiners, and are supported by references throughout so readers know where they can go to learn more. In the Appendix, the "Applicant's Practical Test Checklist" is a handy reminder sheet for what to take with you and how to prepare for the day of the oral exam and checkride.
