Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

PPL A Exams.

What are the scores on the doors? As Brucie would say!

Are any of your students sitting the exams and finding them easy?

The purpose of PPL theoretical knowledge is to ensure that a pilot has enough knowledge to operate an aeroplane safely. Over the years we have moved steadily away from that goal and now the exams are seen as a largely irrelevant hurdle to obtaining a licence. The latest CAA exam questions address the latter rather than the former by seeking to catch the unwary with poor quality questions in the far flung corners of a poorly defined syllabus, whilst failing to check for a safe level of fundamental understanding.
