Trade Paperback + Software Download version: Trade paperback book comes with code to download Prepware software from ASA's website. The Fast Track series is designed to prepare applicants who are seeking Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifications for the full range of material on each test of the series. This test guide offers current test questions, answers, detailed explanations, illustrations, and oral and practical study outlines to the FAA's Powerplant Knowledge Exam. The series is designed in a "fast-track" format for increased comprehension and retention of the studied materials. This guide also lists and identifies all the FAA Learning Statement Codes (LSC) that the FAA uses on their Knowledge Test Reports, which are useful for test takers to find out what their weak areas are if they missed any questions on their FAA exams, and focus further study on those areas. Featuring all the questions from the FAA Knowledge Exam's "Powerplant" section for Aviation Maintenance Technicians, this new edition answers and explains the toughest questions on the FAA exams.
Pilot license candidates studying for the Private and Recreational Pilot FAA Knowledge Exam will find sample questions for every question in the Federal Aviation Administration exam database along with their answers and explanations, in this guide. Questions from the exam are arranged by subject category, with each section prefaced by text introducing the subject matter and accompanied by specific study material. Each question is followed by the answer, an explanation of the answer, and a Learning Statement Code for further study in FAA materials. Updates are provided to account for FAA test-question changes throughout the publication year via the ASA website or e-mail alerts. Up-to-date basics on aerodynamics, engine operation, flight instruments, performance, radio navigation, and meteorology are among the subjects covered in this study aid. Includes softcover book and computer testing supplement.
TheInspection Authorization Test Prep provides Aviation Maintenance Technicians (AMTs) with all the information needed to pass the FAA's exam for inspection authorization, and helps candidates become familiar with the privileges and limitations of the highest level of maintenance certification. This book is an important reference source for all AMTs seeking to add Inspection Authorization (IA) to his or her qualifications, as well as AMT schools preparing students for the IA test. All Inspection Authorization candidates must take and pass the FAA’s IA Knowledge Exam. The IA exam remains a "closed test”--the exact database of questions is not available to the public--which makes the IA Test Prep a great way to prepare for it. The IA exam differs from other FAA exams in that questions do not refer to a specific figure. Instead, applicants must learn to glean the information they need from the FAA Supplement (CT-8080-8) made available for use during the test. The nearly 500 sample questions typify those that candidates are likely to encounter, and train readers in the use of the available documents. Answer choices are supported with explanations, with FAA references identified for further study. This test prep also provides details on what applicants need to know about the certification process, insight into the function of an IA, and excerpts of regulations, advisory circulars, airworthiness directives, type certificate data sheets, FAA orders and aircraft specifications. Resources such as pertinent excerpts from these FAA documents and more are reprinted in this study guide; additionally, readers can access additional study material for this book at a special "Reader Resources" page at the ASA website. The IA Test Prep conveniently compiles the reference materials necessary to prepare for this exam into one volume, for an organized study program that AMT schools, instructors, and individuals alike can use to streamline their studies.
The 'Complete Pilot' series aids student pilots preparing for licensing exams and can be used for home study, certified flight schools, or as a base for student kits. This book leads students through the study material for the private pilot license, including all the aeronautical knowledge requirements for the license and rating. The book, with study material for the instrument rating and commercial pilot licenses, augments basic subjects with more advanced topics, such as instrument flight rules (IFR) systems, procedures and regulations, and details about radio navigation, flight plans, and cockpit organisation. Useful appendices include glossaries of terms commonly used in pilot/control tower operations, up-to-date weather communications information, and flight preparation aids.

Taking and passing an FAA Knowledge Exam is required for earning the Private Pilot, Sport Pilot, and Recreational Pilot certificates. Using the FAA exam as the premise for learning, author Bob Gardner applies practical information so readers are not only prepared for the tests, but also for the cockpit. He augments the required aeronautical knowledge by giving specific tips and techniques, checklists, mnemonic devices, and sound advice from personal experience. A full-color example of a sectional chart is provided in the back for use with the interactive exercises throughout the book. Each chapter concludes with sample FAA Knowledge Exam questions. A comprehensive glossary and index are included as well. This practical application of the FAA Knowledge Exam is not available in any other text! Included in this Twelfth Edition are internet links for useful aviation websites, weather charts, flight planning, etc., with a section showing examples of online weather sources and more (with full-color examples of weather chart products). Also included is information on the new ICAO-based flight planning form, scenario-based training, single-pilot resource management, and learner-centered grading.
