Knowledge Test Nightmare!
Yep… you got it.. if you were sane, you would pack your bags and bee-line to California. They really know how to treat their pilots…
If you follow my blog, you already know, I learnt to fly in California. It is for no small reason they call it Sunny California. I had some of the best flight instructors in CA, the weather is terrific all year round, and California has the most airports to be found in a State in the United States (245), and even better most have a restaurant on the field for that vegeburger or hamburger.
What would you say if you took a partial day off, from a tight schedule, showed up to take a FAA Commercial Knowledge Test and the proctor is a no show?
I never needed to worry about my written FAA knowledge tests in CA, since every flight school I learnt to fly in CA offered computer testing on site. I just needed to be ready, sign up and show up. Obviously, in the east coast, they need everyone to take a day or half day off to test, since hardly any test center offers testing on the weekend.
Is it lack of demand, I wonder?
