Last Class May 3

Greetings Class of 2016,

We are ready for graduation!

Of course, there is the dreaded final exam. We will do the exam in class on May 3. But fear not: it will be open book! If you have a Pratt laptop that can receive the internet, bring it along so you can go to your (bookmarked) CARS Index Page. If you have notes, bring them and use them. I’ll have copies of the AIM in English and French available as reference.

The downside is there is a time limit: 1 hour 20 minutes. There are 100 questions on the exam, but we will do only the first 80 in that 1:20, so that’s 1 minute per question.

Then we’ll take a break while I mark the exams. After break, we’ll do the flight planning together and answer the remaining 20 questions.

That’s the basic outline of the class. Is there time pressure? Big time! But we’ll do the best we can. And at the end of class I’ll give you a sheet with the references for the questions, and commentaries on some of them. Then (hopefully) I’ll get all that up on the site.

Suggestions for April 19 Class

Hello, Class of 2015-16

A reminder that we are meeting a week from today (Apr 19) to review topics of your choosing.

Patrice has suggested we go over what has to happen before you can go solo. That’s a good idea, and one of the hurdles is passing the PSTAR (90% corrected to 100%).

The first reference for PSTAR is TP11919EN, Student Pilot reference guide, et TP11919F en français.

I just bought a Transport Canada approved app for iPhone for studying for the PSTAR. It is the PSTAR Exam APP et c’est bilingue.

Moving on to the PPL exam , the reference is TP12880E or TP12880F.

For practice exams online, see, among others.

I’ll make sure we have plenty of topics to discuss next week, but now is your chance for requests.

See you next Tuesday,
