Survey seeks pilot input on FAA tests

AOPA is encouraging pilots to take a survey by January 30 that will be used to help update the content of private pilot, instrument rating, commercial pilot, and airline transport pilot knowledge and practical tests.

The online survey, which is confidential and should take about 25 minutes to complete, is part of a review the FAA asked its testing contractor, PSI, to conduct to ensure the exams “reflect current practices,” the company said.

“This is a very relevant and important way for the pilot community to give feedback on whether the material being tested is applicable and relevant,” said Christopher Cooper, AOPA director of regulatory affairs.

Under the contract the FAA awarded to PSI in 2018, the company supports the agency’s “development, assessment, maintenance, and enhancement of test items, tests, and supplementary materials with automated state-of-the-art technology and academic expertise.”

Pilots who have questions should contact Brooke Dresden or Tomer Gotlib.
