Level 'A' Wings Test


Before taking the "A" level wings test the prospective pilot must demonstrate to their instructor that they are capable of flying the test from either direction and have mastered dead stick landing procedures.  While these capabilities are not suitable to be demonstrated in a "test" situation they are viewed as mandatory capabilities for competent pilots.

Candidates must demonstrate on two successive attempts during their examination period their ability to:

1 Take off and land unassisted.

2 Maintain straight and level flight parallel to the runway.

3 Perform a figure eight.

4 Rectangular Approach.

5 Land under power.
