  • EASA CPL: Brand New Commercial Pilot

    One more milestone is passed – now I officially possess EASA Commercial Pilot License with single-engine, multi-engine and instrument ratings. It took about 50 flight hours and almost a year – mainly because of theoretical exams preparation, and today I passed the practical exam. The commercial course itself took 15 dual hours, one long solo […]

  • EASA Instrument Checkride

    I completed my competency-based instrument rating course and recently got my night rating. The examiner was able to squeeze my exam into his schedule on Sunday, and the weather was perfect, so I had my checkride today. It was my second attempt since previously the attitude indicator failed in the school Cessna 172, and we […]

  • EASA Intrument Checkride: Nice Try

    Yesterday I got my EASA NVFR (night rating), and today I manage to schedule my IFR checkride. It does not make sense to wait if the examiner is available and all lessons are done. Usually students fly to Vodochody or Karlovy Vary for instrument checkrides because these airports are controlled, and they have published instrument […]

  • EASA ATPL Theory: The Exams are done!

    Today was The Day! I passed all the rest of the EASA ATPL theoretical exams. All 14 exams are done! I am so excited about it! I remember my university master’s degree thesis, when I was studying days and nights during some months to get it done. It took about 7 months, countless sleepless nights, […]

  • EASA ATPL Exams: AGK, RadioComm, PoF, Performance, HPL

    This is the second EASA ATPL session for me: as I mentioned, I already passed 6 EASA ATPL exams. Yesterday I passed two more subjects – Human Performance and Limitations and Aeroplane Performance. In my ranking these are the easiest subjects after VFR/IFR Communications. Today I am taking three exams: Aircraft General Knowledge, Radio Communications, […]

  • EASA ATPL Exams: VFR communications, Air Law, M&B, Operational Procedures, General Navigation

    The most difficult subjects for me in the EASA ATPL theory course were Air Law, Operational Procedures ΠΈ General Navigation. Meteorology is also rather challenging, but much more interesting. I don’t know what was in my mind when I booked the exam slots, but I have all these three in my current session. Today I […]

  • EASA ATPL Exams: IFR Communications

    I started taking my EASA exams in the Czech CAA. Public transportation is very convenient in Prague, so it is not necessary to rent a car here. The CAA is located near the airport terminal 3. I am getting used to this building πŸ™‚ It is still impossible to pay by card, only cash is […]

  • Question Bank for the FAA CPL written

    I am in doubt: I feel that generally I am ready for the FAA CPL written test. I went through the official FAA materials, but I’d like to use some question bank for the evaluation. With EASA subjects it is pretty easy: there are only 2 providers (bgsonline and aviationexam), and both are really cool. […]

  • FAA IR(A) Written Test

    What to do in a bad weather? Of course, the best choice is studying! I felt pretty confident about my knowledge, so I decided to take a written test. The exam itself is not so hard. The program interface looks exactly like gleim’s software, the pictures are the same as the ones available in all […]

  • EASA PPL Written Exam

    Today I passed the rest of my written exam subjects. There is a nice point: retaking is totally free. I supposed that I have to pay for all attempts, but I was wrong, in Czech you pay only once. This time the exam was easy for me. I was better prepared, I knew what to […]
