Sport Pilot Practical Test Standards for Airplane, Weight-Shift Control, Powered Parachute, and Flight Instructor: FAA-S-8081-29 and 31 (Practical Test Standards)by Federal Aviation Administration (faa)
Synopses & Reviews
ASA reprints the most current FAA Practical Test Standards in this series of handy cockpit-sized guides. This is ASAs 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.
This manual covers the oral and practical exams required for pilots of light-sport aircraft (LSA), other ultra light vehicles, and flight instructors of these vehicles, in accordance with the new Sport Pilot License recently mandated by the FAA. Detailed and up-to-date information is provided for both knowledge requirements such as physiological conditions (dehydration, spatial disorientation, and hypoxia), flight planning exercises, and skill requirements for takeoff and landing, bank angles, and airspeed. The tolerances for altitudes, airspeeds, headings, and banks that must be maintained to demonstrate each maneuver successfully are also defined.
Previously printed as two separate guidebooks and now combined into one, this manual guides student pilots, flight instructors, and FAA-designated examiners through the final test in acquiring a pilot license. Detailed and up-to-date information is provided regarding knowledge requirements, understanding physiological conditions such as dehydration, spatial disorientation, and hypoxia, and skill requirements for takeoff and landing, bank angles, and airspeed. This reference, which has been updated by the FAA to match their new and revised regulations, includes clear definitions on tolerance of altitudes, airspeeds, headings, and banks that must be maintained to demonstrate each maneuver successfully.
