Starting @ KLGB October 18th w/ credit for private. Very excited. Been studying like crazy, took all my written exams, just studying for FOI now. I used Sheppard Air and scored the following:
Instrument Airplane: 100%
Instrument Instructor : 100%
Commercial Pilot Airplane : 98%
Flight Instructor Airplane: 99%
Please do yourself a favor and use Sheppard, as there were no surprise questions.
Study routine (Don’t rely on just the prep software):
- Pilots Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge
- Airplane Flying Handbook
- Advisory circulars for both Aviation Weather and Aviation Weather Services
- Instrument Flying Handbook
- Instrument Procedures
- digital book:
The New Concise Guide for IFR
- Flight Instructor Handbook.
- FAR/AIM sections for each rating.
Keep in mind with all that you aren’t going to remember everything. Constant review is essential.
Now just doing daily IFR review and knocking out all the extranet videos. King Schools videos are absolutely amazing! Lots of good stuff on the ATP library! Studying C-172 and maneuvers as well. I learned in the Diamond Star DA-40.
