Here is your applicant checklist ... cklist.pdf

Please plan a VFR cross country from KGAI to KWWD. You need to complete a VFR navigation log and a VFR flight plan. Be prepared to explain the purpose of a VFR flight plan.

Here is your weight and balance info for the scenario: Two front passengers, 160 pounds, and 170 pounds. The rear passenger is 150 pounds. Tell me how much baggage can be carried with full fuel.

You need to complete a weight and balance for the actual checkride. The examiner weighs 140 pounds.

Here is your scenario:

You have a new job (an office job) working for a real estate developer. Your new boss has just purchased some land that he plans to build a housing development on. The property is 12 hours away if he drives and about 4 hours away by small plane. The boss knows that you have your pilot’s license and ask if you can fly him there on the day he is scheduled to close on the property. The boss has offered to pay for the aircraft rental. The boss has also hired a photographer to take some aerial pictures of the property on settlement day. These pictures will be used in some of the advertisements.

The plan is that on settlement day, you will fly your new boss and a photographer to a small airport near the property. Before landing, the boss wants you to fly as low as you can over the property so that the photographer can get some nice aerial shots.

You have not flown a long cross country since your training for you Private Pilot Certificate. Plus, due to work and weather issues, you have not flown in about 3 or 4 months. The boss needs to do the trip in one day since he needs to be back the next day for a meeting. There are scattered thunderstorms forecast near the destination.
