PIRC Exam - Recommended Study Materials

Postby Chopper Guy » Thu Jan 6 2022, 01:07

Hello Folks

I've decided 2022 will be the year I complete my instructors rating.

Apart from the FAA Aviation Instructor's Handbook that CASA base the exam on, does anybody have any recommendations on what other books / practice exams etc will help to pass the PIRC Exam??

As an example, I found these guys but haven't heard of them before - https://aussiepilotexams.com/pirc/

Thanks

The best thing I found by far, was this app:

It's a sh17 of an exam... so many random facts. They will pick one line out of a massive paragraph and test you on it.

Good Luck!

Agreed, it's a pr!ck of an exam. Use the FAA book and a practice app, as suggested. I used this app and found it helpful.

Thanks Gents

The advice is very much appreciated :-)

Can't say I'm looking forward to the exam... but yeah, plenty of people have passed it before me, so I'll be OK.

I used this app and it was worth it! Along with the FAA book and CASA helicopter instructor manual. Good luck!
