Testing Preparation

Allowable Aids and Materials

FAA Advisory Circular AC 60-11C describes the aids and materials an applicant is permitted to use during an FAA knowledge test. The AC also contains information on accommodations available for dyslexic applicants.

Personal belongings such as cell phones, purses, wallets, books, notes, mobile devices, backpacks, bags, etc., and any other unauthorized possessions, must be kept outside the testing room.

Please note: we supply an approved E6-B flight computer, plotter, basic calculator, scratch paper, and writing utensils for the FAA knowledge exams. We also supply the official printed test supplement(s) with figures and other reference material.

Specific FAA Knowledge Test Information

For more information on FAA tests, including types of tests, time limits, number of questions, acceptable forms of authorization, and retesting policies, please see CATS’ web page on FAA Knowledge Exams. The FAA also maintains Airman Knowledge Test Guides.

Many, but not all, FAA knowledge tests require authorization in the form of an endorsement from a flight or ground instructor. In cases where endorsements are required, please be sure the endorsement is correctly worded for the appropriate test, cites the correct FAA regulation(s), and includes the applicant’s full name, the instructor’s signature, certificate number & expiration date, and the date of the endorsement. If the applicant does not have proper authorization, he/she will not be allowed to take the test. The endorsement must be copied and placed on file. Flight and ground instructors: please see the latest version of AC 61-65 for sample endorsements and guidance.
