I wish you the best of luck. I have no advice to give, as I am soon to follow in your footsteps. I told myself that I will not beat myself up if I fail, as I am told something like 90% fail on the first attempt.
I will look forward to reading your checkride account. I am so nervoud about mine, I can hardly stand it!
Just answer the examiners questions directly.
Don't put your own "what if Situations" into the answers. It could bite you because it could lead the examiner to more questions.
Don't let them rattle you, sometimes they will try to, just to see what happens they tride on me,its part of the test so the FED told me. Mine was also held over a 2 day period. IT seems like a long 2 days, but you will feel a sense of accomplishment once your done.
Get a good nite sleep, during the check ride just relax, and remember the examiner put their pants on just like you.
Good Luck, and let us know
Dont sweat it. Stay calm. Just remember that the examiner holds your ticket in his or her hands. Be honest with him or her. Remember they want to see that you are up to the job. They want to see that you can handle any situation that comes up. They dont expect you to know everything. If you dont know, find out. Dont BS. I have signed off 11 CFI's in my life and they all passed at the local FSDO first time. That's luck. But I told them all to take there time and be professional.
