This set of resources is designed to simulate the flight test component of a private pilot glider practical test.
The test is comprised of a series of 7 flights. The “Standards_and_Briefings” document contains a list of standards and procedures by which your flight performance is evaluated, and a briefing for each of the seven flights.
Unlike a real-life flight test, where conditions may not allow actual performance of one or more tasks (e.g. there are no thermals the day of your test), this simulation-based test requires the applicant to fly (almost) everything in the practical test standard.
The applicant is expected to use the honor system; flying each flight only once (just like the real world).
1. Review the Standards and Procedures
2. For each flight
a) Review the flight briefing
b) Fly the flight
c) Save the flight as a Replay
for review by your simulation-based flight examiner (CFIG, mentor)
3. Review your flight performance with your simulation-based examiner
