FAA Offers Deviation of DPE Policy to Allow Examiners More Latitude in Conduct of CFI Practical Tests

This week, the FAA implemented one of the requests the industry group made and has issued a deviation from FAA Order 8900.2 that previously limited examiners from conducting any additional (either full or partial) practical tests in the day that an initial CFI (either full or partial) practical test is being administered.

The deviation now allows an examiner to conduct a CFI initial practical retest or continuance and a second non-initial CFI practical test in the same day. This may seem like a small change, but it offers examiners more open “slots” that they are able to provide the flight training community. This is especially valuable in high volume training locations around the country or in locations where good weather days are scarce.
