The FAA Written Examination
1. There are no flight time requirements to take the written exam. The FAA testing place will be specified in class. Hours are normally 8 A.M. to 4 P.M. weekdays, except holidays. No reservation is necessary, and there is no charge for taking the exam at the FAA office. In certain areas, there are Designated Examiners, who must provide a place to hold the FAA Written Examinations, and may charge a fee. Contact your local FAA General Aviation District Office for the one nearest you and then call him for an appointment.
2. There are 60 questions on the glider written [80 on the CFIG]. Each is worth 1 2/3 points [1 1/4 points], and each question is independent of the others. All questions are multiple choice. You are allowed 4 hours to take the exam. The latest starting time is 11:30 A.M.
3. You should bring: 1. Social Security Number. 2. Identification. 3. Evidence of completion of GLIDER PILOTS GROUND SCHOOL, or a letter from your flight instructor 4. Plotter. 5. Your lunch. Vending machine coffee is usually available.
4. The FAA in Oklahoma City grades all tests and returns the score directly to you, about 10 days after taking the written. Keep the results form. 70% is passing. Once you pass the written, it is valid for 24 months.
5. If you fail the test, you must wait 30 days to retake it. In case of your first failure, you may retake it in less than 30 days if an instructor certifies that he has given you further instruction and feels that you are competent to pass.
6. The COURSE SUMMARY is written to first give you the information you need, followed by work sheets with typical FAA questions and 4 options, one of which is correct. If you will: (1) cover the work sheet with a blank sheet of paper, (2) slide this sheet of paper down to uncover the first question and options, (3) select the correct option, (4) then slide the paper down to uncover the next question. The correct option to the first question will be found on the right side of the page.
7. The MOST IMPORTANT THING you can do is to finish the questions in this book!!! Review a second time those questions you miss, before taking the exam.
8. Subjects and questions marked with an asterisk (*) are for Commercial Pilots, double asterisks (**) are for Flight Instructor Pilots.
