Hi, just back from it.
Elbonia is part of JAA, but I had my test in France, also part of JAA
It is 'only' 5 written exams, you can do them separately, but you can also have them all in the same day - which I chose to do, not wanting to do the 1 hour drive to LYS
one more time in September.
It may seem harsh, but the test is actually quite easy (I'm saying that now, but maybe next week, when I learn I've failed miserably, I won't be singing the same song), and it took the whole afternoon (check in at 13.15, checkout around 18.00).
Some of it is really a joke. For the 'human factor and human limitations' part, we had 15 minutes to answer 12 questions (it is a multichoice test), I had it all answered after 1.15 minute... had to re-read myself twice in order not to give my copy back before 5 minutes.
We don't have to pass the Air Law test before the first solo (obviously, as I've soloed already
), but my FI
made sure that I already knew the relevant regulation for a simple circuit.
Ah, last detail. We were about 20/30 to have the test, but apparently, I was the only one to wear a A.net T-Shirt. (I tried to go spotting at LYS
afterwards, but it was actually deader than CMF
in summer !)
Ok, and Aloges, thanks, apparently, I had some luck today !
