Every year thousands of private pilots buy a FAR/AIM with the intention of studying the regulations. My estimate is that the average pilot spends less than 20 hours a year using the FAR/AIM manual to increase their knowledge. Pilots have good intentions of studying, but the lack of use is mainly due to the poor study format of the FAR/AIM. The end result is that pilots understand only a small number of regulations. This study guide is going to change that! The Federal Aviation Regulations Study Guide for the Private Pilot is presented in a very study-friendly format. Our professional pilot staff reviewed all of the FARs and selected the regulations that apply to private pilots. Those regulations were then formatted into a study guide format with questions, answers and additional information. Whether you are preparing for your private pilot check ride, a biennial flight review, or a general review, this book will help you prepare much more efficiently and retain more information.

Asserting that a flight certificate is a pilot's ``license to learn,'' this unique book offers valuable lessons learned by veteran pilots. Using the anecdotal style that has made his Flying magazine column so popular, Fried bridges the gap between pilot training and in-flight experience with his advice on vital but often under-emphasized areas of: maneuvering speed; weight and balance; aircraft control; prop safety; night flying; altitude.

Private Pilot Airman Certification Standards - Airplane

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has published the Private Pilot - Airplane Airman Certification Standards (ACS) document to communicate the aeronautical knowledge, risk management, and flight proficiency standards for the private pilot certification in the airplane category, single-engine land and sea; and multiengine land and sea classes. This ACS incorporates and supersedes the previous Private Pilot Practical Test Standards for Airplane, FAA-S-8081-14. The FAA views the ACS as the foundation of its transition to a more integrated and systematic approach to airman certification. The ACS is part of the safety management system (SMS) framework that the FAA uses to mitigate risks associated with airman certification training and testing. Specifically, the ACS, associated guidance, and test question components of the airman certification system are constructed around the four functional components of an SMS: Safety Policy that defines and describes aeronautical knowledge, flight proficiency, and risk management as integrated components of the airman certification system; Safety Risk Management processes through which internal and external stakeholders identify and evaluate regulatory changes, safety recommendations and other factors that require modification of airman testing and training materials; Safety Assurance processes to ensure the prompt and appropriate incorporation of changes arising from new regulations and safety recommendations; and Safety Promotion in the form of ongoing engagement with both external stakeholders (e.g., the aviation training industry) and FAA policy divisions. The FAA has developed this ACS and its associated guidance in collaboration with a diverse group of aviation training experts. The goal is to drive a systematic approach to all components of the airman certification system, including knowledge test question development and conduct of the practical test. The FAA acknowledges and appreciates the many hours that these aviation experts have contributed toward this goal. This level of collaboration, a hallmark of a robust safety culture, strengthens and enhances aviation safety at every level of the airman certification system.

Talking on an aviation radio and understanding air traffic control instructions can be one of the most intimidating aspects of flight training. Bob Gardner's "Say Again, Please" teaches readers what to say, what to expect to hear, and how to interpret and react to clearances and instructions, while detailing the airspace system and explaining how the ATC system works. This new Fifth Edition has been expanded and updated throughout to reflect current FAA rules and operating procedures. Chapters in the book cover communication etiquette and rules, understanding radio equipment, emergency situations, and both VFR and IFR communications and clearances. Also included: a concise summary of the FAA's communication facilities and their functions, airspace classifications and definitions, and the FAA's recommended shorthand for copying clearances. The communication requirements for entering, departing, and transiting each class of airspace is explained in detail by following along with the author on "simulated" flights. A full-color sectional excerpt, in an attached fold-out format, is provided for the example flights so readers can review the map while reading the explanation for flying and talking in each area. Readers will learn everything they need to communicate effectively in VFR, IFR, and emergency conditions. The example foldout sectional chart is in full color and is also used for example flights discussed throughout the book. Bob Gardner's conversational-yet-concise writing style in his approach to aviation communications will help increase your comfort level when using an aircraft radio. The book features "talk" examples of typical radio transmissions that explain how the air traffic control system works, as well as present simulated flights that clearly demonstrate correct communication procedures in each class of airspace. This hands-on book covers the following: --The ABCs of communicating --Understanding radio equipment --Communication etiquette and rules --VFR, IFR, and emergency communication procedures --Air traffic control facilities and their functions --Review of airspace definitions --Glossary of pilot/controller communication terms and phrases Let "Say Again, Please" help you learn how to communicate in the air.
