Repeated Flight Test Item

A flight test item or manoeuvre may be repeated if one of the following conditions applies:

Discontinuance: Discontinuance of a manoeuvre for valid safety reasons; i.e., a go-around or other procedure necessary to modify the originally planned manoeuvre.

Collision Avoidance:Examiner intervention on the flight controls to avoid another aircraft, which the candidate could not have seen due to position or other factors.

Misunderstood Requests: Legitimate instances when candidates did not understand an examiner’s request to perform a specific manoeuvre. A candidate’s failure to understand the nature of a specified manoeuvre being requested does not justify repeating an item or manoeuvre.

Other Factors: Any condition under which the examiner was distracted to the point that he or she could not adequately observe the candidate’s performance of the manoeuvre (radio calls, traffic, etc.).

Note: These provisions have been made in the interest of fairness and do not mean that instruction, practice or the repeating of an item or manoeuvre already unacceptably demonstrated is permitted during the flight test evaluation process.
