Podcast Episode 2 – Ratings, Add-ons, and the FAA Airman Certification Standards

In this episode, Derek and David discuss the complexities surrounding different ratings and add-ons, especially when it comes to single- versus multi-engine ratings. The whole thing is enough to leave you scratching your head, and it feels a little bit “inside baseball”. In fact, I make a reference to that in the episode. It’s a really interesting conversation, and it shows just how complex getting new ratings and certificates can be.

Later, we talk a bit about the differences between the older PTS and the newer ACS that replaced it. We also discuss how the ACS helps pilots manage risk and execute better aeronautical decision making.
