FAA Airman Certification Standards (ACS) are effective as of 15 Jun 16!
- The ACS is an enhanced version of the PTS, and replaced the PTS on 15 June 2016.
- The ACS adds task-specific knowledge and risk management elements to each PTS Area of Operation/Task. The result is an integrated presentation of specific knowledge, risk management, and skill elements for each Task.
- The ACS thus provides a single-source set of the standards for both knowledge exam and the practical test. For more information click here or go to the "FAA & ICAO Information" section located on the "CAP Pilots" web page.
