Improving Success During and After the Checkride

All our checkrides follow the Practical Test Standards or Airman Certification Standards.  We cover all required areas on your checkride required  by the FAA, but we add a human touch to your experience.  We hope to create an atmosphere that you, as the pilot, can respond to in a way you couldn’t anywhere else.

Part of this comes from a better mentality. Focusing on local pairings and recruiting of supportive DPE’s reduces unnecessary stress. When you realize that your examiner is a fellow aviation enthusiast and isn't just there to be an obstacle, you are better prepared to perform.  

This is more than a checkride, this is your opportunity to be tested and walk away a better pilot.  A good pilot never stops learning, so schedule your checkride today!
