The ninth edition of the 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.

Covered everything as advertised

  • By A Customer from Buffalo, NY on Saturday, October 14, 2017
  • Pros: Excellent topics, covered in full
  • Review: The material is divided nicely into sections making weak areas easy to find and improve. Yes, the book is very dry and to the point but more than likely that is how the checkride will be.

Full of valuable information

  • By Matthew from San Antonio TX USA on Tuesday, August 01, 2017
  • Pros: Covered all the important topics
  • Review: Very well organized book that covers most of the topics that came up during the oral portion of my recent commercial practical test. The scenario based questions were very helpful as the DPE asked most of the questions using scenarios. There were additional questions at the end of each chapter - I wish the book had provided answers for those as well instead of requiring me to look up the references.

  • Review: I have used both the instrument and commercial oral exam guides by ASA. They are very well designed and organized. These books were recommended to me by an FAA examiner who uses them regularly. I cannot give a higher rating for a preparatory text.

  • By Tyler from Buckhannon WV USA on Wednesday, December 19, 2007
  • Pros: Very well put together!
