New ASA Instrument Pilot Oral Exam Guide Released!

The Eleventh Edition of the Aviation Supplies and Academics (ASA) Commercial Pilot Oral Exam Guide was just released on May 30th, 2024. Originally written by Michael D. Hayes, after his retirement I had the pleasure to again continue his work with ASA to help update the book. When I and the team at ASA worked on updating this book, we also made sure we incorporated changes that we knew were coming in the new Instrument Pilot ACS that becomes effective tomorrow, so this book should serve every well even with those changes.

ASA’s Oral Exam Guide Series is an excellent study tool for students and instructors alike. Arranged in a question-and-answer format, this comprehensive guide lists the questions most likely to be asked by evaluators during the practical exam and provides succinct, ready responses. FAA references are provided throughout for further study.

Additional study material for Instrument Instructor (CFII) candidates and guidance for instrument proficiency checks (IPC) make this book valuable both for instructors and for pilots preparing for the Instrument checkride or an IPC.
