Where do you give checkrides?
My preference is the Smyrna (KMQY) airport, but on my checkride scheduling page you will find a list of Middle TN airports at which I will conduct an exam. Please contact me if you have a travel request for an exam outside of the Nashville area.
What type of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, Venmo, and credit card (with 3% processing fee).
What do you charge?
For full private, commercial, instrument checkrides the fee is $700 with a $200 retest fee.
For limitation removal checkrides the fee is $300.
What does initial or add-on mean?
If you are testing for a new class of certificate (Private, Commercial, or ATP), please select "Initial certificate". If you already have the pilot certificate but you are adding a new class of aircraft to it, please select "Add-on rating".
For example, if you have a Private Pilot certificate with airplane single-engine land and you want to add a multi-engine rating, that would be an "Add-on" rating. If you have a Private Pilot certificate with airplane-single engine land and you want to test for a Commercial Multi-Engine land, then you would select "Initial certficate" since you do not already have a Commercial Pilot certificate.
In which multi-engine aircraft are you authorized for checkrides?
I am currently authorized in the following make and models: BE55, BE58, BE95, B200, B350, PA44.
If you have a twin not on this list, feel free to contact me and we will see what we can work out.
What is a FTN?
A FTN is your FAA Tracking Number. It must be used for all electronic practical test applications. If you do not have one, please register at the FAA's IACRA website. Once you are registered and login, you will see your FTN at the top left of your screen.
If you are training at a 141 school that does not use IACRA, please enter "NONE".
