2. For anyone who has written the exam lately, do you need to know the point of no return or any other formulas.
3. Everyone I know keeps getting a partial on General Knowledge. I can't see why? Is there something tricky about it?
Any other tips for scoring high, I feel pretty prepared and am scoring 75-85% on every practice exam I have done, with a strong amount of that being Air Law, due to the fact I enjoy reading the CARs (don't ask why, I like interpreting the legal aspects of flying)
Thanks for your help everyone, I really appreciate it.
You should know those formulas
Study, you'll do fine.
Good luck, sir. You will do just fine. Grab a pint and celebrate after!
I wrote my CPAER exam two weeks ago.
You will need to know all the formulas required for the exam - I was specifically asked a question about VOR reception range.
My best advice to you would be to make a cheat sheet with all the required formulas on one side and all pertinent information requiring memorization such as VFR minima, light signals, etc., on the other side. Carry this sheet around with you, and when you have a free second, pull it out and look it over; you'll have the whole thing memorized in no time.
General knowledge was my second lowest mark, but I still scored in the mid-eighties for it, so I'm not sure why people are failing that section.
The exam itself does require the memorization and understanding of a lot of material. That being said, as long as you're prepared you'll do fine.
I found my biggest issue was that a number of the questions had multiple correct answers. Of the 12 questions I got wrong, two were due to my being lazy and not thinking the question over thoroughly and calculating correctly, one I truthfully didn't know, and the rest were ones that had two possible correct answers.
Ensure that you are well rested, hydrated, and prepared before the exam, and like I said before, you'll do fine.
Best of luck!
I do not think that is correct unless things have changed, as there used to be VFR PPC's,PPC for IFR, PCC for VFR..
If I was the OP, I would get confirmation about this.
Passed it, now on to the flight test, thanks everyone!
I think I can say with almost 100% confidence that you know more about the subject, that's really just been my experience with the whole PPC/PCC.trey kule wrote:I do not think that is correct unless things have changed, as there used to be VFR PPC's,

PCC: Pilot competency check aka: "VFR OPS"
PPC: Pilot proficiency check aka: "IFR OPS/VFR OPS included"
I stand to be corrected....
All the best,
The PCC's were issued by the company. Sometimes for 702 ops on twins, otherwise for right seat...but again, there was also right seat PPC's.
Someone who is more current can probably give a CARs reference rather than me speculating.
My comment was just to confirm it and not base your information from postings here.
In any event, congratulations on passing the exam.
Edited: my curiosity got the best of me. If I interpreted the CARS correctly, a PPC is required for any multi engine airplane, and, in certain instances, for single engine operations..(703.88)
723.88 states the following
Except where an Air Operator Certificate authorizes operation under day VFR only, or an operator assigns the pilot to day VFR flight only, instrument procedures shall consist of IFR pre-flight preparation, departure and enroute procedures, terminal procedures and system malfunctions.
That means to me the IF requirement for PPC depends on the AOC...but a PPC for PIC ,VfR is required for multi engine aircraft in commercial air service....and helicopters
I do not think a PPC is required for 702 ops. A PCC will suffice...but I am again,mgoing from memory here
Someone with better CARs speak can confirm.
