The fifth edition of the Airline Transport Pilot Oral Exam Guide has been updated with new references and new and revised questions to reflect the latest regulations and Airman Certification Standards. Written to help prepare applicants for their oral exams with FAA examiners. Using a question-and-answer format, each Oral Exam Guide lists the questions most likely to be asked by examiners and provides succinct, ready responses. An excellent study tool for pilots gearing up for their checkride, airman check, or interview. Flight instructors find these an indispensable part of the test preparation process, teaching ATP candidates how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence when under the examiner's scrutiny. All the subjects an ATP candidate will be tested on during checkrides, career interviews, and aircraft transition rides are covered. Chapters are dedicated to turbine aircraft theory, performance and limitations, airline operational procedures, aeronautical decision making (ADM) and crew resource management (CRM), regulations, and instrument procedures. 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.
