I have a GA checkride coming up next month and Iím curious of others checkride experiences. How hard was the oral and flight portion?
Im prepping for the ride, Iíve scheduled some time in a PA44 at ALL ATPS in Arlington and Iíve been studying the applicant guide that was sent.
Iíve also searched the thread, Iíve seen that some folks had an 1.5hr ride, while others reported a 3hr ride. Is 3hrs the new standard for the check ride?

I would appreciate a PM or reply.
Thank you for your time.

I had the option to do air carrier or general aviation and I elected to go with the GA side. My checkride is coming up soon and I am preparing for that.

That being said, I do have a tool that you could possibly use if you are interested. Your checkride with be in a 737 either in OKC or Denver (United's sims), most likely OKC.

When I was preparing for it, there is a place that I found in Chicago that happens to have a simulator where they only charge around $125/hour. The sim itself doesnt move but the visuals are presented with screens that move. The cockpit is exactly like the one that you will use for your checkride and could be deemed invaluable if you dont have any time in a 737. Let me know if you are interested in hearing more and I will elaborate
