What can anyone tell me about the FAA ADX exam? How hard is it? How is it administered? Are the questions multiple choice? Short Answer? etc. Where can I get study materials? Any information is appreciated.

ADX written exam is 80 computerized and random questions. Your best bet is to get a copy of the Gleim FAA ATP Test Questions book and just start memorizing all the Part 91 and 121 questions. That will only get you half of the way there though, because then you have a pretty tough Oral Exam covering everything from how to read a weather depiction chart to knowing what Class B airspace is. If you haven't registered in a dispatch school or are just curious, check out www.flightcontrolacademy.com in Tucson.

I hope it works out for you.
Let me know if you have any more questions.

The oral/practical one-two punch is the hardest part of getting the license. You'll be there a few hours doing a flight plan and getting pounded by the examiner.

I went to FCA (website posted above) for my license. They've been using the 737-200 for their flight planning for quite a few years now. Many of the other schools are still using the now defunct 727-200, but that should not be a deciding factor in who you ultimately choose. But one thing that FCA has over Sheffield is that Tucson, being so close to the Mexican border, they are in entrenched in Mexican culture. I still need to go back down there and get my fix of Albondigas and Sonoran hot dogs, the little carne asada hardshell sandwiches you can buy with them, and Pepsi and Coke made with REAL pure-cane sugar.  Smile

You'll constantly be learning after you get your license. The license is only the tip of the iceberg, and if and when you do get your license, and a job, the operation that hires you will train you to their specifications.

Quoting ATLAaron (Thread starter):
Where can I get study materials?

I bought a rather nice book from Sporty's on aviation weather produced by jeppesen (much better than what Gleim put out, and not in lecture format) that sits in my book shelf, and I pull out from time to time. The schools will have a standardized curriculum, though, so don't spend too much pre-school.

Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun.
