Overcoming Checkride Anxiety – 14 ways to reduce your fears + GA News

Everyone feels nervous to some extent when they go for a checkride, so we share 14 ways to reduce your anxiety before and during a checkride. Checkride anxiety applies to student pilots in particular because it’s your first checkride. But it also applies to all pilots who think that someday they’ll go for an instrument, or maybe a multiengine, seaplane, glider, Commercial, ATP, or CFI checkride. Professional pilots working for a Part 135 charter company or an airline, also have to periodically be rechecked. Here's a brief summary of the 14 ways to reduce your nervousness about a checkride. Note: You'll hear far more details about each one in the podcast. If possible, meet the examiner ahead of time. Clear the deck for at least a week before the checkride. Do whatever it takes to guarantee that you get a decent amount of sleep the night before the checkride. Make sure you have all of your paperwork in order. Become intimately familiar with the ACS oral section, Use a study guide like the ASA Private Oral Exam guide to help you prepare for the oral. Do a mock checkride with your instructor or another flight instructor. If there’s a gouge available, a report that someone has written about their checkride with your examiner, see if you can find it and read it ahead of time. Don’t get upset if you make some mistakes on your last flight before the checkride. Prepare for a long day; bring some food! When you walk in for your checkride, exhibit confidence, but not cockiness. Know that it’s OK to tell the DPE a joke. If you start getting nervous, and feel you’re not doing well, ask for a timeout. Go into the checkride with just the tiniest bit of indifference or apathy, so you won’t be too upset if you don’t pass. Click here for the listener survey. Tell us what flight planning tools you use when planning a longer flight.

Send us an email - http://www.sjflight.com/Forms/inquiry.htm If you have a question you'd like answered on the show, let listeners hear you ask the question, by recording your listener question using your phone. Summary111 Max talks about a SR22 icing accident that killed a client. Meteorologist Scott Dennstaedt analyzes the weather, which had severe icing in clouds, and talks about tools pilots can use in preflight to identify possible icing. Ice often forms first on the tail. Tailplane stalls pitch an aircraft down and require a different recovery method than wing stalls. Speeds were too high to use the parachute. The accident aircraft was a normally aspirated SR22 which had a TKS anti-icing system, but not the more robust FIKI system that permits flight in known icing. The aircraft didn’t have built-in oxygen, which may be why the aircraft was flown at the 14,000 feet, the maximum altitude at which a pilot can fly for up to 30 minutes without supplemental oxygen. The minimum en route altitude was 13,300 feet, so when the pilot encountered ice, he was unable to descend. For the first eleven minutes at 14,000 feet, flight data appeared normal. But in the next three minutes the aircraft’s speed decreased by 60 knots, while climbing 600 feet, or about 200 feet per minute, suggesting the aircraft had picked up a heavy load of ice. The aircraft then disappeared. Simulations show that in a tailplane stall, an aircraft pitches down sharply and rapidly increases speed. Most likely, the accident aircraft reached 200 knots in about five seconds, which would be too fast to deploy the CAPS parachute. Recovery from a tailplane are the opposite of a wing stall that pilots practice. To recover, a pilot needs to pull back on the yoke an reduce power.

The problem is there’s limited bandwidth, and only one person can talk at a time. On quiet frequencies this isn’t a problem. But in time critical situations, ATC can’t talk until you stop talking.

Summary109 Max talks about Avoiding Midair and Near Midair Collisions. He recently had two near midair collisions (NMAC). While midair collisions are rare, NMACs are common, and pilots who have one should report it to the FAA. Collisions are more likely with aircraft with no radios and with agricultural aircraft. To avoid midairs, pilots should use flight following and good scanning techniques.
