I accept cash (USD) and cashier’s check only. I do not accept credit cards or personal checks.
Out of Area Tests
Tests outside my service area require individual consideration. These are handled on a case-by-case basis.
If I’m meeting you at a designated airport, you must provide a private area free of distractions. I provide my own internet and printer.
The posted fee schedule applies only to retests for applicants who received a Notice of Disapproval on a previous practical test from me. Applicants seeking a retest after receiving a Notice of Disapproval from another examiner will be charged the full fee for the Practical Test regardless of tasks already completed on the first attempt, unless otherwise specified.
In some cases I will not charge a fee to continue the test (within 60 days) in the event that a Letter of Discontinuance is issued (see the Unavoidable reasons, below.)
I recognize that sometimes, despite the best of intentions, issues which may cause a discontinuance are simply out of our hands. Therefore, I do not charge to continue a practical test at a later date (within 60 days of the Letter of Discontinuance) for the following reasons:
-Maintenance issue develops during the checkride
-Other reasonable circumstances athe Examiner’s discretion.
A rescheduling fee may be charged due to the following:
The airman’s logbook entries do not demonstrate that he/she has met the aeronautical experience requirements for the desired certificate or rating
Applicant arrives without required documents including the aircraft maintenance records, proper endorsements, or identification
Applicant presents an unairworthy aircraft with an easily avoidable airworthiness issue
