JLang Posted February 22, 2017 Report Share Posted February 22, 2017 After at least five postponements due to weather, starting early November, I finally was able to take and pass my checkride in my 2007 CTSW. It went about as well as it could have, though the DPE gave me quite a lot of leeway on my landings since there was about a 10kt crosswind and choppy conditions. Anyway, in the repository of knowledge that is this forum, I am sure this is well known, but for future student pilot test-takers, one piece of advice I will pass on is to TALK through everything. I'm not a chatty person, but during the test I talked through every detail: what I was trying to do and why, what was actually happening, and what I was going to do to correct it (if necessary). The DPE will know if you are close to the maneuver limits on altitude, speed, etc, so calling attention to that, even when you go beyond them, conveys that you recognize and will fix that condition.
