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.
