Overview

This section provides useful information about the Final Examination, Certificates and Ratings, and ADD-ON Ratings.


Final Examination


The practical test, or check ride, consists of both an oral examination and flight test that will last between 2-3 hours depending on the specific pilot certificate and rating you are pursuing.

Many flight schools have a designated FAA examiner on staff, which allows you the convenience of performing the check ride directly at the flight school.

ADD-ON Ratings


As the name suggests, ADD-ON ratings are those you obtain in addition to the pilot certificate you already have from either the FAA or from another country that has membership in the ICAO.

For example:

You have a private pilot certificate with an airplane category and single engine class rating and want to obtain a multi engine rating or a rotorcraft category and helicopter class rating.

In this case some of your previous flight experience will be credited towards your new rating!
