I thought you were no longer allowed to take the Student Manual into the exam as all relevant charts (or sections of) were provided ?

Am I wrong about this ? :(

The CATs guidance and I think the CAA eportal says you can bring in calculator, GSRPM, CRP5 and approved calculator.
I think you are provided with the flight planning CAP manual

That’s new then When I did IR TK exams everyone took in their own Jepp student manual and one person (me as it happened)from the room was selected to have his manual taken away for checking and a manual provided in its place for the exam

When you book the exam the booking confirmation will confirm what you can and can’t take in. For instance some exams you can’t take in the student manual and some you can...

If a flight planning exam becomes a race against the clock then surely something's broken somewhere?

Shouldn't flight planning take as long as it takes, something not to be rushed? It hardly seems safe to teach people to rush such things.

The question are randomly generated within some criteria. It also means someone could get hammered with time consuming questions and some people couldn't. E.g. locaton a VOR on a map and tell me the identifier versus locate two reporting points and add up all the route legs etc

My appeal (review) was successful and I passed the exam. That's me done now!
Apart from the flying of course!


Well done. I got questions on jets. Wish I had appealed. But got the resit in a few days. Feel more ready for it this time.

The ato guidance and EASA learning objectives both say no need to learn jet stuff. If it comes up in the exam can’t the be appealed?


I can’t find that. Could you point me in the right direction please? I had one in the exam I failed, currently revising for a second attempt and would like to drop the jet stuff if I can.

Thanks. I’m familiar with the second one. That’s the one applicable to the CBIR. but I can’t see anywhere in it that I don’t need to learn the jet stuff. I was wondering if there is anything in the assertions to that effect.

I’m at the CATS ground school next week, I’ll give some feedback on the FP situation from their perspective. Anyone else on that one?
