You have a friend that has recently purchased a rare car that is located near Crisfield/Somerset Co (W41). He has offered to pay you to fly him there and drop him off so he can drive the car home to Gaithersburg. Explain to me how this may be possible if you hold a Commercial Pilot Certificate.

Plan a VFR cross country to Crisfield/Somerset Co (W41). Please prepare a VFR flight plan as well as a VFR navigation log (a paper copy). Please have a paper sectional chart with your course line drawn on it. After arriving at W41, your discover that the magnetic compass has leaked all of the fluid and therefore it is inoperative.

When planning the cross country, use the weather at the time you are planning the cross country. On the day of the checkride, you will have time to update the winds and course information.

The weather at W41 shows the following:
A fast moving cold front has just passed the night before.
The winds aloft at the 3000 foot level and up were forecast to be very strong and the surface winds were forecast to be calm.
The briefer also said that the pressure was falling rapidly.
The ATIS or AWOS at W41 stated the winds as 270 at 15.
When you arrived at the airport, the wind sock showed the wind from the east at the arrival end of the runway you were planning to use.

What are some of the flying jobs that you can do if you do not hold an instrument rating?

Your weight and balance assignment is as follows:
Your two front seat passengers (you and a another passenger) are 150 pounds and 170 pounds. Your rear seat passengers are 140 pounds and 150 pounds. You have 150 pounds of baggage. How much fuel can we carry?

Please complete a weight and balance for the actual flight in your aircraft. Harry weighs 140 pounds.
