Check Rides: If you think every check ride you take will be graded fairly, you have a second guess coming. There are ways to get a check ride properly evaluated. This book covers many check tides that I have either taken, given, or argued over, and had reappraised. Again, it's what you know and can prove. When I applied for my FAA Flight Instructor ticket, I had well over 3,000 hours, including over 1,000 hours instructing USAF students in the North American T-6, after graduating from the USAF Flight Instructor school at Craig AFB in Selma, Al. I had known the FAA Inspector with whom I took that check ride for years before taking that ride with him. He always bluntly stated if you did not want the ticket badly enough to take the check ride at least twice, you did not deserve it! I told that FAA check pilot that a maneuver could not be flown as he told me it should be taught, and made him admit that I was right and he was wrong! Before briefing another particular maneuver, I made him specify the prior training of the pilot who was being taught. While briefing that maneuver, he interrupted by stating that I should have given that pilot certain information. He was forced to admit that a pilot qualified as previously stated would have already known what I had not yet mentioned before he interrupted me in the briefing. He so consistently acted like the north end of a south bound horse, that I became very angry and told him that if he would shut his mouth until I finished my briefing, he would have all the information he needed! That story is much longer but this is not the place to tell it. I got the license! A most interesting check ride! I once sent a student for a military final check ride. I got highly angered at his check ride grade report and, even though the student passed the ride, made the check pilot admit that he was wrong on everything about which he had criticized my student.
