TWO Aviation Handbooks combine into one book! Private Pilot Practical Test Standards for Airplane Single / Multiengine Land and Single / Multiengine Sea: The Flight Standards Service of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has developed this practical test book as the standard that shall be used by FAA inspectors and designated pilot examiners when conducting private pilot—airplane practical tests. Flight instructors are expected to use this book when preparing applicants for practical tests. Applicants should be familiar with this book and refer to these standards during their training. Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 61 specifies the AREAS OF OPERATION in which knowledge and skill must be demonstrated by the applicant before the issuance of a private pilot certificate or rating. The CFRs provide the flexibility to permit the FAA to publish practical test standards containing the AREAS OF OPERATION and specific TASKs in which pilot competency shall be demonstrated. PLUS: The Airplane Flying Handbook is the official U.S. Government guide created by the Federal Aviation Administration designed as a technical manual to introduce basic pilot skills and knowledge that are essential for piloting airplanes. It provides information on transition to other airplanes and the operation of various airplane systems. This handbook will assist student pilots learning to fly airplanes. It is also beneficial to pilots who wish to improve their flying proficiency and aeronautical knowledge, those pilots preparing for additional certificates or ratings, and flight instructors engaged in the instruction of both student and certificated pilots. It introduces the future pilot to the realm of flight and provides information and guidance in the performance of procedures and maneuvers required for pilot certification. Illustrations very detailed and colorful. Chapter 1—Introduction to Flight Training, Chapter 2—Ground Operations, Chapter 3—Basic Flight Maneuvers, Chapter 4—Slow Flight, Stalls, and Spins, Chapter 5—Takeoff and Departure Climbs, Chapter 6—Ground Reference Maneuvers, Chapter 7—Airport Traffic Patterns, Chapter 8—Approaches and Landings, Chapter 9—Performance Maneuvers, Chapter 10—Night Operations, Chapter 11—Transition to Complex Airplanes, Chapter 12—Transition to Multiengine Airplanes, Chapter 13—Transition to Tailwheel Airplanes, Chapter 14—Transition to Turbopropeller Powered Airplanes, Chapter 15—Transition to Jet Powered Airplanes, Chapter 16—Emergency Procedures, & Glossary.

This handbook supersedes AC 61-9B, Pilot Transition Courses for Complex Single-Engine and Light Twin-Engine Airplanes, 1974; and portions of AC 61-10A, Private and Commercial Pilots Refresher Courses, 1972. This revision expands all technical subject areas from the previous edition, FAA-H-8083-3. It also incorporates new areas of safety concerns and technical information not previously covered.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is an agency of the United States Department of Transportation with authority to regulate and oversee all aspects of civil aviation in the U.S. (National Airworthiness Authority). The Federal Aviation Act of 1958 created the group under the name "Federal Aviation Agency", and adopted its current name in 1967 when it became a part of the United States Department of Transportation. The Federal Aviation Administration's major roles include: Regulating U.S. commercial space transportation. Regulating air navigation facilities' geometry and Flight inspection standards. Encouraging and developing civil aeronautics, including new aviation technology. Issuing, suspending, or revoking pilot certificates. Regulating civil aviation to promote safety, especially through local offices called Flight Standards District Offices. Developing and operating a system of air traffic control and navigation for both civil and military aircraft. Researching and developing the National Airspace System and civil aeronautics. Developing and carrying out programs to control aircraft noise and other environmental effects of civil aviation.
