ZK-DXO Weight & Balance

Flight Test Preparation

The PPL flight test usually starts with the examiner asking you questions about aviation law, weather, navigation, aircraft flight manual etc.
You will then make weight & balance, and performance calculations based on data given by the examiner.
Finally you will demonstrate a passenger brief, and take the examiner to the training area to test your skills in various manoeuvres, i.e. turns, stalls, FLWOP, precautionary landing, circuit procedures etc.

The CPL flight test is essentially the same as PPL, just to a higher standard plus a few additional manoeuvres. To view the CPL Flight Test Standards Guide CLICK HERE.
