It is followed by a reprint of the Flight Instructor–Instrument Practical Test Standards. This edition includes complete reprints of Instrument Airman Certification Standards FAA-S-ACS-8A and CFII Practical Test Standards FAA-S-8081-9D.
The Oral Exam Guide contains over 650 questions and is easily navigated via the detailed Table of Contents and the comprehensive index. The depth and breadth of these questions will give you a significant advantage as you prepare for your test.
Specific content is included for instrument-airplane students and Flight Instructor-Instrument applicants
ACS/PTS and Oral Exam Guide are included in one easy-to-use book
Oral Exam Guide contains over 650 questions
Oral Exam Guide's table of contents cross-references each question to the appropriate ACS/PTS Area of Operation to make studying more efficient
