NEW ACS for  Commercial Pilot Airplane  and 
Updated ACS for Private  Pilot,  and Instrument Rating Airplane.
On June 12th, 2017, the Airman Certification Standards for Commercial Pilot Airplane (FAA-S-ACS-7) will replace the Practical Test Standards (FAA-S-8081-12C). On that same day, new editions of the ACS for Private Pilot Airplane (FAA-S-ACS-6A) and Instrument Rating Airplane (FAA-S-ACS-8A) will also go into effect, canceling the previous editions.

The FAA Airman Certification Standards (ACS) document is the guide for students, instructors, and evaluators to understand how to successfully complete their FAA Knowledge Exam and practical test (checkride). The ACS incorporates knowledge and risk management along with the skill elements to each Area of Operation and Task. The result is a comprehensive presentation that defines the standards for what an applicant needs to know, consider, and do in order to pass the FAA tests and earn a certificate or rating.

Applicants preparing for a checkride before June 12th should continue using the Commercial Pilot PTS and the current editions of the Private Pilot and Instrument Rating ACS. Those preparing for a checkride on June 12th or beyond will need to reference the new ACS shown in the table below. 

Softcover, 8.25" x 10.75", black and white. Also available as a Baker's Dozen (13 books for the price of 12). Cover returns for unused, unsold copies of ASA-8081-12C, ASA-ACS-6, and ASA-ACS-8 will be accepted from distributors only through July 31, 2017.
