The new Airman Certification Standards (ACS) for Private Pilot (Airplane) and Instrument Rating (Airplane) are shipping now, ASA officials report.
The ACS will help applicants develop an understanding of how knowledge, risk management, and skill elements work together for safe performance of each required task they may be asked to perform during a checkride.
For instructors, the ACS will serve as a guide for teaching and training an applicant everything they need to know for certification and safe operation within the National Airspace System.
Designated Pilot Examiners (DPEs) will use the ACS to assess an applicant’s understanding, knowledge, risk management and performance of each task.
