ASA reprints the most current FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS) in this series of handy cockpit-sized guides. ASA's "Airline Transport Pilot and Type Rating Practical Test Standards for Airplane" combines FAA-S-8081-5F (including FAA Changes 1-7) for the ATP rating, and also FAA-S-8081-10C for dispatchers, into a single book for quick-reference. Using these PTS guides, students, pilots and instructors will know how to take or conduct an FAA Oral and Practical Exam, which is the last step on the way to obtaining the FAA license.

Detailed and up-to-date information on exactly what airline transport pilot candidates will need to explain and demonstrate during the oral and practical portions of their final flight test is provided in this book. The knowledge requirements, such as preflight preparations and physiological conditions, which prospective pilots can expect to discuss with their flight examiner, are thoroughly detailed as are the skill requirements that must be successfully completed during the checkride—including what kind of takeoff and landing must be demonstrated, how steep a turn should be executed, and what areas will be tested on a continuous basis. Supplementary reference materials and areas of background study, which help test takers learn the required matter and obtain their pilot licenses, are also described.
