Paul's Recommendation

Paul Hamilton, CFI, DPE

For all pilots preparing for a checkride in a Light-Sport Aircraft. Aircraft categories include airplane, weight-shift control (trike), and powered parachute. Additionally, Section 3 is for the Certified Flight Instructor applicant getting ready for the CFI checkride and Section 4 is for all pilots preparing for their flight review.


The FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS) includes all of the FAA required questions and the Sport Pilot Checkride book includes all of the answers to the questions in the FAA PTS pertaining to the checkride.

It follows the FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS) exactly, providing all the questions and answers organized in order by Section and task. This is what is known as the Oral Exam guide. Additionally, it has the flight portion of the checkride with tips and checklists to make sure you do not miss anything.

Flight Instructors and FAA examiners are recommending this to student pilots before a checkride because all the information for a checkride is included.


Sport Pilot applicants...you should watch this before your checkride. Certified Flight Instructors, you should watch this before performing your first proficiency check.


Carry the book with you to study anywhere at your convenience. Watch the DVD with any DVD player or on most computers.


It turns out that it is the best guide for what to study in the FAR/AIM manual. Each question refers to a rule in the FAR’s or a section in the AIM so you know what is relevant to study. This makes the FAR/AIM book less scary and manageable of what to study.

To get your Sport Pilot endorsement to take the tests at the FAA approved testing centers you must do two practice exams with the Prepware and score an 80% each time. Email the results to ASA to receive your Sport Pilot endorsement to take the actual FAA test.

I recommend you consistently get a 90% on the practice tests to be assured of passing the real FAA test. It costs you about $150 to take the FAA test so you want to pass it the first time.
