new 5th edition is an extensive update to comply with the ATP Airman
Certification Standards (ACS) and Advisory Circular 61-138 Airline
Transport Pilot Certification Training Program, ensuring ATP applicants
will be familiar with what they will be expected to know, consider and
do. Information has been updated and added for current regulations,
procedures and equipment to include ADS-B, TIS-B, NOTAMs (domestic and
security), weather services including the flight risk assessment tool
and risk management.

This guide has more than 100 pages than previous editions, with
chapters dedicated to system operations, performance and limitations,
weather information, high altitude aerodynamics, air carrier operations,
human factors, and regulations. Appendices provide the FAA’s ATP
Airplane Multiengine Applicant Qualifications Job Aid and the ATP
Practical Test Checklist.

Written to help prepare applicants for their oral exams with FAA
examiners. Using a question-and-answer format, each Oral Exam Guide
lists the questions most likely to be asked by examiners and provides
succinct, ready responses. An excellent study tool for pilots gearing up
for their checkride, airman check, or interview. Flight instructors
find these an indispensable part of the test preparation process,
teaching ATP candidates how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence
when under the examiner’s scrutiny.

All the subjects an ATP candidate will be tested on during
checkrides, career interviews, and aircraft transition rides are
covered. Chapters are dedicated to turbine aircraft theory, performance
and limitations, airline operational procedures, aeronautical decision
making (ADM) and crew resource management (CRM), regulations, and
instrument procedures.

Answers and explanations were researched using FAA documents (and are
identified so readers know where to go for further study on any given
question) as well as through interviews with a variety of airline
pilots, 121/135 operators, and examiners. The ATP Oral Exam Guide
teaches applicants not only what to expect, but also how to exhibit
subject mastery and confidence when they’re under the examiner’s
scrutiny. It identifies the candidates’ strengths, weaknesses, and gaps
in their aeronautical knowledge, which increases study efficiency.
