Formerly known as the Practical Test Standards (PTS)

The Airman Certification Standards is the guide for students, instructors, and FAA-designated examiners to know what applicants must know, do, and consider for their FAA Knowledge Exam and practical (checkride) to earn their pilot certificate or rating. Replacing the Practical Test Standards (PTS), the ACS is basically an enhanced version of the PTS. It adds task-specific knowledge and risk management elements to each PTS Area of Operation and Task. The result is a comprehensive presentation that integrates the standards for what an applicant needs to know, consider, and do in order to pass both the knowledge test and the practical test for a certificate or rating.

Don't take you check ride with out having gone through this book. Mine came somewhat smashed in the mail. I assume the post office did this, but Sporty's mailed it in a regular paper mailer with zero protection. But other than that, this is very much needed, and a great value.

Is private pilot practical test standards the new edition 2016?
Azizz on Feb 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The Practical Test Standards have been replaced by the Airman Certification Standards (ACS). This is the current edition of the ACS.
Does this contain the all questions & all answers to the ACS?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, it does not contain questions and answers. It contains the subjects that you may be quizzed on, and the things (maneuvers) you must be able to do with the plane. It is the standards for pilot certification. If you are after questions and answers you need the Oral Exam Guide. However, be aware thew even the OEG doesn't list all the questions that you might be asked. The DPE (Designated Pilot Examiner) makes up the questions for each test, based on the ACS subjects you are required to know about. The DPE won't ask you about each and every Knowledge and Risk item in the PTS; that would take a very long time. Rather, the DPE selects certain ones to ask you about. You of course don't know which ones the DPE will ask about so you have to know about all of them. And you can't just provide a canned, memorized answer. You have to demonstrate understanding of what you are talking about. That's what instructors are for, to provide the understanding.
