Purchase a current PTS, review the areas applicable to the rating sought. Be sure to have updated charts, know how to use an AFD. Review the special emphasis areas, you are required to be tested on these items. Use the applicant checklist, nothing sets ... more »

There's two different things. An "FAA Designated Pilot Examiner", not an employee of the FAA. He/she is authorized to give certain checkrides for a fee. An "FAA Inspector" is an employee of the FAA, they are normally too busy to give checkrides. POI's ... more »

Looking at the link from Huck it says 14 DAYS, not hours. Still ridiculous, but possible I suppose.

No worries about getting your license in 14 hours? You should be very worried because under part 61 it requires a minimum of 40 hours to be eligible for a check ride. DPE's pass hack gouge jobs all the time, most of those 'accelerated schools' have DE's ... more »

Don't do the 14 day course, find a good CFI and have fun with the training. Bring your kids along, build experience, enjoy it. A 14 day private is a joke. I wouldn't think about the Sport unless you have issues getting a medical, if that's the case don't ... more »

Packaging and installation? People dont often understand how little manufactures are involved. ETOPS bragging rights for the A380? Extended TWIN Engine Operations. The crew of that A330 were testing full aft CG, they vmc'ed the airplane. Airbus is the ... more »

Power plant failures? You mean the Rolls engines? The engines that Airbus doesn't manufacture? On a quad jet? Honestly, an IFSD is not a giant deal in these airplanes. Just like any new design, there are problems that can only be replicated by every ... more »

Vmc'ed the airplane doing alpha-floor testing (get google warmed up). Crew found at fault. I have no idea how many "write up's" it had during certification. That's a poor barometer of the long term quality of an airplane. How come Airbus has outsold ... more »

Well, the top has never blown off an Airbus so it might be hard to call that one settled. How do you know it wouldn't do the same thing? Maiden flights? Are you talking about the AF A320 the crew wrecked? How is the A380 a POS?

Why would you rather be in a 737 if 'things went down'? Jus' curious.

Absolutely. How do you 'know'?
