Private pilot requirements: flight test requirements


It is time to link all Student / Pre-Solo Pilot and Post Solo requirements. In order to be eligible for the practical test of the private pilot license, you must have everything that I have listed so far DOCUMENTED in your registration book, in more detailed detail in my book, but I will inform you as much as possible.

Now I will explain the requirements so that you can opt for your private pilot practice test. All the above requirements must be met for student only and cross-country alone. If you have not looked at them yet, here they are:

Now it's where the requirements that normally appear on the Internet come from. It is only about the regulation of the aeronautical experience. This is the regulation of which most of the flight schools choose their articles and from where they write articles that most people have nothing to do with aviation.

(a) For a rating of an airplane's engine. Except as provided in point (k) of this section, a person requesting a private pilot certificate with airplane category and single engine rating must register at least 40 hours of You want to include at least 20 hours of flight training. an authorized instructor and 10 hours of solo flight training in the areas of operation listed in article 61.107 (b) (1) of this part, and the training must include at least-

(1) 3 hours of flight training on a single-engine plane;

(2) Except as provided in item 61.110 of this part, 3 hours of night flight training on a single engine airplane that includes-

(i) A flight between countries with more than 100 nautical miles of total distance; i

(ii) 10 take-offs and 10 full-scale landings (with each landing involving a flight in the traffic pattern) at an airport.

(3) 3 hours of flight training on a single-engine airplane in the control and maneuver of an airplane only with reference to instruments, including the straight and level flight, the steady ascents and descents of the air velocity, He goes to a heading, recovering from unusual flight attitudes. , radio communications and the use of navigation systems / facilities and radar services appropriate to the flight of instruments;

(4) 3 hours of flight training to prepare the practical test on a single-engine plane, which must have been done in the 60 days prior to the date of the test; i

(5) 10 hours flight alone on a single-engine plane, consisting of at least-

(i) 5 hours of solo crossing time;

(ii) A solo cruiser flight of at least 150 nautical miles of total distance, with landings of complete stop to a minimum of three points and a segment of the flight consisting of a straight line of at least 50 nautical miles between the places take-off and landing; i

(iii) Three take-offs and three landings at full scale (with each landing involving a flight in the traffic pattern) at an airport with an operational control tower.

Then there is the other eligibility regulation for the private pilot license flight test.

(a) Except as provided in section (b) and (c) of this section, in order to opt for a practical test for a certificate or qualification issued in this part, the applicant must:

(1) To pass the required proof of knowledge within the period of 24 months prior to the month that the applicant performs the practical test, if a proof of knowledge is needed;

(2) Submit the knowledge test report when applying for the practical test, if a proof of knowledge is required;

(3) Have satisfactorily completed the required training and obtained the aeronautical experience prescribed by this party for the certificate or qualification requested;

(4) Have at least one third class medical certificate, if a medical certificate is required;

(5) To meet the prescribed age requirement of this part for the issuance of the certificate or qualification requested;

(6) Have an endorsement, if required by this part, in the registration book or registration of the application signed by an authorized instructor certifying that

(i) Has received and registered the training time within 60 days prior to the date of the application in preparation for the practical test;

(ii) You are prepared for the required practical test; i

(iii) has shown satisfactory knowledge of the thematic areas in which the applicant was deficient in the proof of knowledge of the plane; i

(7) Have a completed and signed application form.

There are also ground instruction requirements. Lately the FAA has been doing hard on that. There have been many cases in which students have been terminated for flight tests and the instructor never made any ground instruction with them. You want to remember that your instructor must have this document in order to be able to opt for the flight test.

Personally, as a sheet with all the training in flight and all training on the ground and the sign at the bottom. This way I have a complete record and the examiner can see all areas of the subject.

Within these three regulations, you can find all the others that appear in the student pilot requirements and the requirements for internship practices. Most people have no idea about all this. And, once you have started the wrong way in your pilot training, you can become a very expensive company.

This was the main reason I finished writing "Airfreddy's Guide on Learning To Fly." This happens all over the country. I can not tell how many emails I receive from frustrated people throughout the entire process. If they had planned and investigated in advance, they would have managed to do so with a realistic budget and with a realistic calendar.

Obtaining your private pilot license and learning to fly can be a great experience, but if you do not understand that you are slowing down, you change from teachers, schools or expect to do your written test. You'll be frustrating increasingly and I see ALL THE TIME.

Your goal is to become a safe and competent rider on a realistic budget. Planning this process is the most important thing you can do. You do not want to jump and then find the wrong way.
