Committees have voted, mission statements have been made, and it's time for flight instructors and students to toss out the venerable PTS (Practical Test Standards) and kiss the ACS ring. Success in this brave new testing world requires pilots to know that ACS means:


Aeronautical Certification Standards


Airperson Certification Standards


Airman Certification Standards


Awfully Confusing System

If you enjoyed taking this interactive quiz and would like to see more like it, go to the AVweb Brainteaser page. And if you thought it was unfair, confusing, or a waste of time, we'd like you to tell us that, too. And if you have an idea for a subject that you think would make a good future Brainteaser quiz, be sure to let us know.
