Make sure you have the proper identification with you.  Domestic students must have their Drivers License and Logbook endorsement.  International students must have their Passport with VISA, Logbook endorsement, Medical and Pilots License.

You cannot take anything into the testing room with you except your flight calculator (must be reset/cleared before you go into the testing room) and plotter.  You may not bring any electronics including cell phones and computers, pens, watches, hats, scarves, or personal belongings into the room.  You will be provided with two sheets of paper, two pencils, an expo marker and a clear sheet, along with the testing supplement book.

After the test, you will have the opportunity to review the questions you missed.  You will also receive an embossed printout of your test score.  Do not lose or misplace the printout of your test score, as it is the only copy and it in not replaceable.  In order to re-test for the same exam, you must have your embossed previous exam printout with you.

If you have any questions, you may contact Epic Flight Academy at 386-409-5583, extension 341, go to the Proctors office (room 163), or see your flight/ground instructor.
