Are you ready for your End of Course Checkride?
Imagine the Simulated Comprehensive Aircraft Navigation (SCAN) event as if it is a checkride, where you are given a cross-country scenario, sectional chart, weather products, aircraft performance chart, and more in order to answer questions regarding the flight.
The competitor's main responsibility is, first, to be familiar with the Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR), and also know how to interpret given weather products, or look for the correct information from the aircraft performance charts. There will always be multiple legs for the cross-country, so you are very likely to do the performance calculations more than once.
Today, you are flying for fun from KDAB to Bahamas carrying a passenger. The airplane you rent has not been inspected for a while, and if you only have $300 to spend on inspections and each inspection costs $100, which of the following would you choose to inspect to make this a legal flight?
- Annual inspection
- 100 hours inspection
- Pitot-static equipment
