Most pilots do not fully understand what is expected of them during the practical test. A pilot not understanding what is expected of them during the practical test for an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate can very easily lead to a failure. Most pilots do not review the ATP Practical Test Standards (PTS) completely prior to their practical test. Would any professional reaching the highest rating in any profession take a major exam without extensively preparing for the exam? By far most would not. Believe it or not this happens often with the ATP pilot certificate. This book will help explain the ATP PTS and allow a pilot to be fully prepared and confident to take the ATP Practical Test. This book is packed full of tips and techniques that will allow a pilot to be very successful on their ATP Practical Test. By the time a pilot qualified to take the practical test for the ATP Certificate, they are expected to know an immense amount of information. The ATP PTS helps organize that information, but just reading the ATP PTS most pilots will miss very important points. This book will help pilots understand the ATP PTS much better. Do risk failing your ATP Practical Test. Using this book in addition to the ATP PTS will greatly increase your chance of success.
