Ready for your check ride?
A check ride must be provided by an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner, or DPE. Fortunately, the FAA Provides a list of examiners and their contact information. Unfortunately it’s not clear if they provide your examination, test in your aircraft, will come to your airport, or are even available.
It has been said that “booking a check ride requires the planets to align.” It certainly can feel that way. If it’s not the weather, it’s the aircraft, or life just gets in the way.
Th endless emails and phone messages contacting each DPE is frustrating. This back and forth can take weeks or months. If it takes too long you may need to re-take the 3 hours flight instruction required within 90 days of your check ride. It is not uncommon for this to happen.
Though we can’t change the weather, we can help connect you with the right DPE. Sense 2014 we have helped hundreds of pilots achieve their certification. Chances are that you know someone who has worked with us, perhaps they referred you. We work with Flight Schools, Flight Instructors, And Pilot Examiners throughout the nation to form a network of support to help you achieve your goals.
Skip the frustration. Submit only one request. Your Training Support Specialist will, on your behalf, reach out to our network of DPEs who can provide your exam and are available within your time frame. We will keep you informed of the progress at each step of the way.
Once a DPE has accepted your request and you agree to a date, you will receive an itinerary with all the information you will need to prepare for your check ride. If at any time you have any questions, we’ll be there for you.
A quick search of the internet will bring up a number if sites offering to help you find a DPE. Most are simply serving up information scraped from the FAA directory. Others list a few select DPEs who pay them for the listing. We take a different approach.
We are not a listing service, a database, or a middleman. We are real professionals who provide personal assistance to help you achieve your goals. We know the industry and the DPEs that we work with. We provide one on one support and value your trust. Go ahead, give us a call. You will reach a real person ready to help.
