Using a question-and-answer format, Private Pilot Checkride lists the questions most likely to be asked by examiners during the last step in the pilot certification process – the Practical Exam – and provides succinct, ready responses. Pilots will find this App an indispensable tool in both planning for what to expect during the airplane checkride, and mastering the subject matter. Instructors rate them as excellent preparation for students, as well as preps for Flight Reviews, aircraft transitions, and as general refresher material.
This Private Pilot Checkride app is based on the popular Private Oral Exam Guide book by Michael Hayes. It is designed for student pilots training for the Private Pilot Certificate. More than 600 questions and responses ensure all the subjects a Private Pilot candidate will be tested on during checkrides and review flights are covered. Topics include: certificates and documents, weather, determining performance and limitations, airplane systems, cross-country flight planning, night operations, and aeromedical factors. Answers and explanations were researched using FAA documents (which are identified so pilots know where to go for further study) as well as interviewing FAA examiners. Questions can be marked for further study from any subject to build your own collection of flashcards. An Applicant Practical Test Checklist and quick-reference to the Private Pilot maneuvers and tolerances (as defined in the Airman Certification Standards, previously the Practical Test Standards) are also included.
Compatible with iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone, and iPod Touch, this app teaches applicants not only what to expect, but also how to exhibit subject mastery and confidence when under the examiner’s scrutiny. It identifies candidates’ strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in their aeronautical knowledge, which increases study efficiency.

This is a straight port from the book to an app.
While it's handy to have on my phone and hides the answers (flash card style), they could have spent more than 10 minutes importing the data into the app.
For example, there is a question asking to "define the following" that has no data. Te book has it broken down this way too, but it makes sense in a book and not in the app.
They could have randomized the questions too. It's EXACTLY the same order as the book.
This was helpful in getting my PPL. I studied using this app months in advance before the check ride. Explanations are ok but the majority of the time I found myself searching outside the app for information to augment understanding.
When your at that point of not knowing what to study for, use this app because it is a good source of questions.
So useful for checkride oral exam prep
I'd give it 5 stars except that some of the questions don't populate properly and there are other minor careless errors. Overall, worth the money for me.
