Strange… I’ve done all of that on all three of my tests and I still failed 😥

I’ve personally never seen a better test. This is what they call “perfectly executed,” or “an absolutely great job,” or even “immaculate.” There is truly no better way to guarantee a pass then to follow the instructions in this video.

To any trainees of mine, take note.

Don’t forget, Bobby had some great, professional pilots a long for the ride.

You sisters are all such a hot mess. Can we get a sequel with the correct way to call into approach as a pilot?

You know, check in, then radar vectors, then flight following, then ILS, then GPS, then Visual. All requests one right after another? Because we gotta get to our destinations FAST!

Always thought your voice would be more smooth, and maybe a little less dark, Bobby

Unbelievable. Had I delayed my training by a month, I would have been able to make use of this amazing tutorial. Bookmarked, downloaded, and will certainly provide as a fantastic resource to hopeful officers. Long live the professionalism of the expert server!

Haha omg!! That was actually really well done. Very funny. Being a test pilot I can confirm that taxiing through grass is something we love doing our tests to make the person taking the test laugh which relieves stress and ultimately gives them a better chance of passing.

This is so cool!

And how do you get that purple thing that you direct the aircraft to come up?

Your soft, soothing narration and that clear, concise explanation of the radar procedures were just exquisite. Your test pilots – err, sisters rather – also showed amazing flying skills that I probably can’t copy. Just all around perfect. chef kiss
