Learn to Fly - Become a Pilot

Practical Test Standards

The flight proficiency maneuvers listed in 14 CFR part 61 are the standard skill requirements for certification. They are outlined in the practical test standards (PTS) as “AREAS OF OPERATION.” These AREAS OF OPERATION are phases of the practical test arranged in a logical sequence within the standard. They begin with “Preflight Preparation” and end with “Post-flight Procedures.”

Each AREA OF OPERATION contains “TASKS” which are comprised of knowledge areas, flight procedures, and/or flight maneuvers appropriate to the AREAS OF OPERATION. For most pilot certificates, you will be required to demonstrate knowledge and proficiency in all TASKS.

You should obtain a copy of the practical test standard appropriate to the pilot certificate that you plan to acquire. This will allow you to know exactly what is expected on the practical test.
