Captain Checkride -
Version: 2005.01.30

General Instructions:

This flight will both depart Ontario, CA, KONT and land San Diego, KSAN. You will fly a Tower Enroute Control (TEC) route. These are low-altitude routes for use on short flights in congested areas, and you remain with TRACON contol for the enroute portion of the flight. Information on TEC routes in Southern California can be found on the LA VATSIM ARTCC site. Click the TEC ROUTES link under "For Pilots". Fly this flight in a jet. The default Boeing 737 loads with the flight, but choose your preferred twin-engine turbojet aircraft. Note: We cannot test all add-on aircraft with the flight recorder, so while you may choose any twin-engine turbojet, we reserve the right to ask you to refly using a different aircraft should there be problems with the recording.

Use of the autopilot is optional, but it must not be engaged below 500 feet AGL. Use VORs for navigation, tuning the navigation radios as needed to fly the procedures. This is required to pass the checkride.

Please also review the standards of performance required to pass this checkride.
