Incomplete Flight Test

If the test is not completed due to valid circumstances beyond the candidate’s control, (weather, mechanical, physiological reasons) the subsequent flight test will include the flight test items not completed on the original flight test. The flight test must be completed within 30 months of the original recommendation letter.
The following process will apply:

  1. a copy of the incomplete Flight Test Report must be presented to the candidate;
  2. the flight test may be completed at a later date;
  3. the test may be completed by the same or another examiner;
  4. the original recommendation must still be valid;
  5. flight test items already assessed will not be re-tested, but items already demonstrated during the initial flight and repeated for the purpose of the second flight, may be re-assessed as “1”, if the aim of the exercise is not achieved or safety is compromised;
  6. the original flight test report may be used to complete the test, or two separate reports may be submitted; and
  7. the candidate is permitted to complete additional training while awaiting completion of the test.

If the incomplete flight test included one failed air item, the partial flight test for that item may be conducted during the subsequent flight but only after the candidate has completed all of the required items, provided:

  1. the minimum pass mark has been achieved;
  2. no additional item was failed during the subsequent flight; and
  3. a letter of recommendation for the partial flight test was received prior to the flight.
