ASA reprints the most current FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS) in this series of handy cockpit-sized guides. Every PTS is written by the FAA and details the type and level of skill and knowledge that must be demonstrated before an examiner can issue a certificate or rating to an applicant, describing also the background study and reference materials.
This new PTS guide for mechanics includes all three current standards in one book for the General (8081-26through Change 3), Airframe (8081-27through Change 3), and Powerplant (8081-28through Change 2) sections of the Oral and Practical exams, the last step in the quest for the Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) certificate. The standards presented in these guides are the only way for AMT students, their instructors, as well as the examiners themselves, to know what the FAA expects for these required tests. Therefore they are essential for preparation, study, and eventually passing the tests to become FAA-certified aviation mechanics.
This reference for aviation maintenance technicians (AMTs) contains the standards for the general, airframe, and powerplant sections of the oral and practical exams, the last step in the quest for an AMT certificate. The standards presented in this guide are the only way for AMT students, their instructors, as well as the examiners themselves, to know what the FAA expects for these required tests, making them essential for preparation, study, and passing the tests to become FAA-certified aviation mechanics.
Detailing all the skills and knowledge parameters that must be demonstrated to obtain a pilot license, this guide aids aviation maintenance technicians, student pilots, flight instructors, and FAA-designated examiners though the final test to acquire a pilot license—the checkride. The requirements for passing the checkride are thoroughly itemized, from weather reports, forecast, and takeoff to physiological conditions and flight planning. This guide also fully covers the skills in repair and maintenance that must be demonstrated as well as the knowledge of airframe and power plant theory, processes, and techniques that must be verified during the FAA's oral and practical exam. Supplementary reference materials and areas of background study are included.
