Airline Transport Pilot Oral Exam Guide
ASA’s Oral Exam Guide Series is an excellent study tool for students and instructors alike. Arranged in a question-and-answer format, this comprehensive guide lists the questions most likely to be asked by examiners and provides succinct, ready responses. Use it when you’re gearing up for the Practical Exam or as a general refresher. FAA references are provided throughout for further study.
This fifth edition of the Airline Transport Pilot Oral Exam Guide by Michael D. Hayes is an extensive update to comply with the ATP Airman Certification Standards (ACS) and Advisory Circular 61-138 Airline Transport Pilot Certification Training Program. Information has been updated and added for current regulations, procedures, and equipment to include ADS-B, TIS-B, NOTAMs (domestic and security), weather services including the flight risk assessment tool, and risk management.
Chapters are dedicated to system operations, performance and limitations, weather information, high altitude aerodynamics, air carrier operations, human factors, and regulations. Appendices provide the FAA’s ATP Airplane Multiengine Applicant Qualifications Job Aid and the ATP Practical Test Checklist.
Answers and explanations were researched using FAA documents (and are identified so readers know where to go for further study on any given question) as well as through interviews with a variety of airline pilots, 121/135 operators, and examiners. The ATP Oral Exam Guide teaches applicants not only what to expect, but also how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence when they’re under the examiner’s scrutiny. It identifies the candidates’ strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their aeronautical knowledge, which increases study efficiency.
The ATP Oral Exam Guide is the comprehensive guide to prepare you for the FAA checkride.
