The Private Oral Exam Guide is designed to help prepare student pilots for the oral exam portion of their checkride with FAA examiners. Using a question-and-answer format, this indispensable tool lists the questions most likely to be asked by examiners and provides succinct, ready responses. Instructors rate the oral exam guide series as excellent resources for students in both planning for what to expect during the airplane checkride, and mastering the subject matter. This guide is also great preparation for flight reviews, aircraft transitions, and as general refresher material.

This eleventh edition has been updated to comply with the Airman Certification Standards (ACS) and recent FAA publications, rules and procedures. All the subjects a Private Pilot candidate will be tested on during checkrides and review flights are covered. Chapters are dedicated to certificates and documents, weather, determining performance and limitations, airplane systems, cross-country flight planning, night operations, aeromedical factors, and SBT (Scenario-Based Training.) Scenario-based questions have become an integral part of the Practical Test and an important tool in an examiner’s toolbox. Student responses to these “open-ended” questions demonstrate an understanding of the big picture and convey the practical application of what’s important and why. Noted SBT expert, Arlynn McMahon (2009 National Flight Instructor of the Year, and recipient of the 2010 NATA Award for Excellence in Pilot Training Award), provides insight into these scenario-based questions and will be invaluable to students preparing for their checkride.

Questions, answers, and explanations in this guide were researched using FAA documents (identified so readers know where to go for further study) as well as through interviews with FAA examiners. References for further study are provided throughout the book, and additional study questions conclude each chapter.

Worth the money

  • By Lewis from Raymond ME USA on Monday, December 10, 2018
  • Pros: Covers all the areas
  • Review: Great prep book for the oral. Due to constant changes by the FAA, do not think this is the only thing to reference. However, it pretty much covers the questions an examiner is going to ask. The other questions asked are the ones concerning the questions you missed on the knowledge test.

Great Investment

  • By Nijat on Tuesday, January 23, 2018
  • Pros: Simple, easy to use, very knowledgeable
  • Review: This book is definitely a must, it has capitalized on many things that i have overlooked in my studying, it has direct questions and direct answers, no fuss just straight to the point, in fact it has so much, it over prepares you for the oral, it has literally every possible question an examiner could ask.

  • By Anthony from Palm Beach Shores FL USA on Wednesday, July 19, 2017
  • Pros: OK
  • Review: Additional study Questions--Be much better if the Answers were provided. Reason I do not have all the additional FAA and AIM books On Hand. I just carry that nice size book

  • By Albert from Longwood FL USA on Thursday, March 03, 2016
  • Pros: Good
  • Review: Best if used with a CFI to assure understanding of the material.

  • Pros:
  • Review: This book really prepared my for both my fixed wing and rotary wing checkrides. I will continue to be a loyal ASA purchaser.

This does a nice job. It was my primary study guide for the oral exam.

  • By Dana from Austin TX USA on Monday, June 15, 2015
  • Pros: Thorough coverage of the oral stuff you might not see with typical preparation.
  • Review: The book covers most items very well. That's 90% of what I needed. I think some additional material on flight planning (duats?, etc.) would be useful. (that would even work as a second book).

    The SRM section is very nice, but I think could be organized to make it easier to use (such as, this stuff can be done preflight, that stuff is for during the flight, etc.)

    Q: I'm needing the PTS book for signal engine planes is this what I need?

    A: This Practical Test Standards (PTS) for Private Pilot is no longer being used as of June 15, 2016.  The FAA has transitioned from the PTS to the new Airman Certification Standards.  You can find the Private Pilot Airman Certification Standards book here which is the direct replacement to the PTS.
