Flight Test Notes, 4th Edition
Feedback regarding Flight Test Notes continues to place this title at
the top of the list of material written for the purposes of test
preparation. Unique in its purpose, it is universally described as being
“perfect” for the role for which it has been developed.
That role has always been to ensure that students are fully aware of,
and prepared for, what their examiner expects of them during that
culminating stage – the flight test – that, with its successful passing,
will provide them with their licence to be fully-fledged aviators.
Jitters and nerves can block the most skillful of students from
achieving the results of which they are capable. Therefore, knowledge
of the flight test process ahead of time, combined with systematic
preparation for its taking, eases the stress and butterflies. By being the most prepared one can be,
students can eliminate any surprises. That’s entirely what Flight Test Notes is about.
Written for the benefit of all student flight test prospects, Flight Test Notes takes readers step-bystep through every exercise of the Transport Canada (TC) flight test. This process ensures that
students are best prepared for the experience of the examination itself.
Every flight exercise from TC’s Flight Training Manual is analyzed in detail with the key objective
being to describe the level of performance that examiners expect from students as they perform to
maximize their grade during their final examination. Flight Test Notes also provides a series of
pertinent questions, with their associated answers, that are very commonly asked by examiners
during the pre-flight phase of the examination.
This latest Flight Test Notes combines its clear review of TC’s current criteria and standards with a
cross-section of Q&A, detailed “Do’s and Don’t’s”, and in-depth analyses of common mistakes and
means by which to avoid them. Every phase of the examination, from the pre-flight inspection
through to take-offs, climbs, turns, circuits, stalls, diversions, forced approaches, landings,
emergencies and everything else that an examiner wants to see a licence candidate perform is
covered in Flight Test Notes
