A fee of $400.00 will be charged if the practical test is not able to proceed at the scheduled time due to:

  • Missing training documentation
  • Training requirements
  • Pre-existing airworthiness discrepancies with the aircraft to be used for the test
  • Experience requirements
  • Eligibility qualifications.

If you are scheduling a test and have questions about what documentation is required to qualify for the administration of the practical test please reach out ahead of time. I am more than willing to help review information ahead of time to avoid the inability to proceed with a test as scheduled and finding discrepancies at the last moment.

I also encourage CFIs and applicants to review the following links to help avoid rescheduling:
