ASA reprints the most current FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS) in this series of handy cockpit-sized guides. Every PTS is written by the FAA and details the type and levels of skill and knowledge that must be demonstrated before an examiner can issue a certificate or rating to an applicant, describing also the background study and reference materials.
The FAA has written new standards to apply to aviation mechanics, in a similar format to the PTS that pilots have had access to for the pilot tests. These new standards replace what the examiners have been using to give Oral & Practical tests. This ASA guide for mechanics includes all three standards in one book for the General, Airframe, and Powerplant sections of the O&P exams, the last step in the quest for the Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) certificate. The standards presented in these guides are the only way for AMT students, their instructors, as well as the examiners themselves, to know what the FAA expects for these required tests. Therefore they are essential for preparation, study, and eventually passing the tests to become FAA-certified aviation mechanics. 90 pages.
