Fundamental to a successful checkride, FAA PTS guides detail the skills and knowledge that must be demonstrated.
ASA reprints the most current FAA Practical Test Standards in this series of handy cockpit-sized guides. This is ASA’s Sport Pilot Practical Test Standards for Airplane, Weight-Shift Control, Powered Parachute and Flight Instructor.
The FAA Practical Test Standards are used by instructors, students, and examiners to prepare for, review, take, or issue the checkride. Each PTS is written by the FAA and details the type and levels of skill and knowledge that must be demonstrated before an examiner can issue a certificate or rating to an applicant, and describes background study and reference materials.
This PTS includes both the FAA-S-8081-29 for Airplane and FAA-S-8081-31 for Weight-Shift Control and Powered Parachute (effective December 2004), applicable to both Sport Pilots and Sport Instructors.
