Yeah, I realized my mistake soon after I posted. Thank you for correcting me.  Wink/being sarcastic

And for PawBob, actually they are not called licenses, they are called certificates. There is a difference. That is my nit-pick for today. sorry  Wink/being sarcastic

Aerotech..i also dont mean to be picky..but a type rating is a specific course taken for a specific airplane.. it is very involved. Most light airplanes dont require type ratings... Any airplane with Max Gross over 12,500 pounds or any turbojet powered plane requires a type rating... I have also heard it called type specific training.

You have been whats known as "checked out" in those airplanes.. you technically could just hop in them after properly famliarizing yourself with the plane. A type rating shows up on your actual lisence under Part XII Ratings. Hope this helps Big grin

True, but I am type rated in the R-22. In the helicopter world, you have to be type rated in each kind due to the massive difference in each one's flight dynamics.

I'm the holder of a Private Pilot's License!

I'm currently working on my Instrument Rating and next summer I hope to take our 727 simulator course at Purdue. Granted, that won't get me the 727 rating, but it's something to put down on the ol' resume!

As everyone else is getting picky i may as well join in....

XFSUetc, my first type rating was on a Cessna 172. Yep type rating required for the issue of my CPL. A friend of mine did her type rating on a Piper J3 Cub, she even drew a hand to describe the starting system.

DG_Pilot, they can very easily be called LICENCES, I've held a PPL, CPL and ATPL.

The nice little piece of FAA issued paper that i carry in my wallet is a certificate with the privileges of Air Transport Pilot. But the bloody great big book that i have to carry with numerous pages in it is most certainly called a LICENCE.

So guys, before you jump on someone, just remember that not all of us live in the USA!

This should probably go in another thread, but since it applies only to pilots, I'll keep it here.

Of all your checkrides, which was your toughest one?

Did you have any surprises during a checkride?

Share your story here.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

My hardest checkride was my PPL one, reason being it was the only one I have taken.

No surprises what so ever, I would discribe it as flying with a frind. The lady that I did my checkride with was very fair, and very very nice. Her son is a pilot for Alaska, and when he was a CFI, his did there checkrides with his mom! The examinars are very fair, and if you can fly the plane you pass!

One note, I was the first student from that school to go up with that examinar! However she is not used by the flight school any more, as I was the only one who passed first time with her!

Pawbob- my instrument rating checkride was my toughest so far.. definitely the most intense. Although my mulit-engine checkride was complicated by the fact that i actually did lose an engine..but i handled it perfectly and i was issued my ME rating.

The CFI initial is defintiely going to prove to be the craziest... 2 hour oral, 2 hour flight. Sheesh. I've got a pretty good routine i get in now for checkrides, but it is still quite the experience.

Sometimes you might get a suprise from the FAA examiner. I hear the flying and manuever parts isn't that bad, but what is bad is they'll ask you some pretty hard questions that you need to correctly answer. But it helps for your FAA writtens. According to my CFI, lots of students blow it on their landings.

Is the FAA practical test before or after your written test? I'm planning on taking my writtens and practical test this spring.

Written then practical. The biggest surprise you will probably get is when you taxi back, and they will say something along the lines 'If you park the plane where you got it, you passed!' Just try to enjoy your checkride (I know you are thinking 'like that is possible' but most examinar are really nice so it should not be a problem!) Also remember they are required to tell you you fail as soon as you did, so if you lost 110 feet on a steep and they ask for a stall, you know they did not see that 10 feet!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Yep..i actually learn the most it seems like during my checkrides. I remember clearly each one. Ill be getting my CFI and CFII in one big fat checkride the second week of May...so that will be one imprinted in my memory i am sure.

I agree you always seem to learn so much more during phase checks, and checkrides. Best of luck on your CFI and II, I landed once from the right seat (when flying with a friend) my landing was OK but felt a little funny, especially on short final, it was at night too!
But ofcourse it was good fun!

Thanks Iainhol, yeah the transition to the right seat was kinda wierd at first, but after about the second time i went up my body made the adjustments. The hardest thing is verbalizing all your actions for your student and compensating for the parrallax that occurs by viewing the instruments from the side. I still kinda line up on final slightly to the right of the center line for some reason... That definitely would have complicated things if it was at night Big grin. Everytime i go up i always learn something new...just have to take that and put it in the memory bank and learn something useful from it.

It sounds like you will be a fine instructor.

>>Everytime i go up i always learn something new<<
Don't we all, last time I was up it was my first time in a Piper Single and boy I learnt a lot!

You really gain a new respect for you instructor when you first fly in the right seat. The thing I noticed was you can not read the numbers on the right side of the airspeed indicator, I actually had the guy in the left seat read it to me on my base turn and on short final (a little bit of cheating Big grin) However I remember my instructor saying 'Iain you are 5 knots slow, and I now wonder hoe can she see??' The other funnying things was using different hands but you know what you have to do you just got to do it!

I really appreciate that Iain.

As far as the parrallax-You get kinda used to seeing the instruments from the otherside.. it's just a matter of learning to translate what you see from the right seat into what you used to see from the left seat....if that makes any sense at all. Are you looking into getting your CFI when you get enough hours? (i dont think i remember seeing the ratings you have..so i have no clue Big grin) I gotta get some sleep though... IT'S SPRING BREAK TIME!!! WOO HOO!!

XFSU:

Good Luck on your CFI/II. I'd have to say the one ride that always sticks in my mind is my Private. (I guess that's called The Law Of Primacy).

My CFI test was done with this 68 year old examiner. Sharp as a tack.

We did a full day of oral, and a two hour practical. The oral was done on a Friday. At the end of the day, he said we'd continue the oral on Monday, followed by the practical test. He asked that I prepare ground lessons on two specific helicopter manuevers. He emphasized that I needed to use and bring all available references regarding those two lessons.

To make a long story short, I looked them up in every FAA publication, and believe me I had them all. Could not find anything except a short paragraph. On Sunday, I gave up, and decided to check my email. While I was on the net, I did a search on those two subjects and found two detailed articles written by helicopter kit builders. I printed them and brought them with me on Monday.

First thing the Examiner askes me is the two ground lessons and my references. I showed him what I had off the net. To my surprise, he tells me that I passed my oral, and he did not require me to give the ground lessons. He said he picked those two subjects in particular because he KNEW that there was not a lot of detail about them in the FAA publications. I had satisfied him that I was resourceful and was able to find answers to student questions and prepare well for lessons.

The practical was no problem.  Smile

Here's a list of my airman certificates and ratings.

Airline Transport Pilot:
Airplane Multiengine Land with Galaxy, Astrajet, and Learjet Type Ratings

Commercial Privileges:
Airplane Single Engine Land and Gliders

Flight Instructor:
Airplane Single and Multiengine
Instrument
Glider

I'd be curious to know how many years and hours of combined experience we can come up with among the pilots on this forum. I'll start if off. I know that I've got a respectable amount, but there are others out there with much more. I've got 13,000 Hours and 35 years.
