Your private pilot checkride is going to be a big day. It's the final exam of your private pilot training. Below I've complied some great tips to help you be a success on your checkride.
Don't Forget Your Airwork
Students often get sidetracked with preparing for the ground portion of the checkride. Don't let your raw flying skill lack while you're studying. Keep fresh on stalls, turning stalls, navigation, emergency procedures, landings, etc...
Remember You Are The Pilot In Command
On your checkride you are to act as pilot in command (PIC) from the moment you walk in the door. Now remember there is a big difference between confidence and cockeyness. You are to be confident in your skills and your answers you'll be giving. All of this comes down to simply studying the right material and prepping for your checkride.
Double Check Your Paperwork
No one likes to show up for their private pilot checkride just to realize they are missing some paperwork or missing a flight requirement. Nowadays most paperwork is done online however making sure you meet each and every requirment under part 61 is crucial. I've seen students walk into a checkride and the examiner ask them... "So where did you do your 3 solo landings at a controlled airport?" ....Blank stare from the student..... You have to check off everything and make sure you really are eligible for the exam. Don't waste your time or the examiners time.
