About halfway through ground school and I will be writing my PSTAR exam next week. It's pretty simple, as Transport Canada gives you 200 multiple choice questions to study, 50 of which are on the exam (no answers are given by them, but references to where they can be found in CARs and AIM). The PPAER will be a bit more difficult
I am trying to do the study questions as I complete the ground school modules, opposed to looking up all the answers for the exam, writing it, and not really learning anything.
Have gone flying twice now and have logged 2 full hours! (I guess it's better than 0
). The first flight I did the pre-flight inspection, some taxiing, left/right turns, and just got a general feel for the plane. Second flight I did pre-flight on my own, full run-up, taxiiing, hands-on-controls during takeoff, climbs, descents, and shutdown. Next time we'll be working on radio communication, climbs, descents, and I'll be doing the takeoff.
Just lovin' it. So much to learn, but it's great!
