Seems like most any private pilot is familiar with the term "FAA Ramp Check." But
do we understand what happens during this event and what we are expected to do in order to comply?
And, have you wondered
why you were chosen
for this on-the-spot inspection without warning?
This week's Tip examines the process of the FAA Ramp Check and how we as pilots need to be ready to "pass" if we are ever confronted with this event. There are
very specific things
that the FAA is looking for and you can be totally prepared in advance. We will also examine
how the FAA chooses their targets
so you don't have to be surprised (most of the time!)
Watch this short video and see if you and your aircraft are "prepared"!
