Bonus Question. Let's send the FAA your opinion about ACS; you know, the testing thing that replaced PTS ... Whoa! Stop with the acronyms; it hurts! Sorry. ACS (Airman Certification Standards) did, indeed, replace the aged Practical Test Standards (PTS). Time, now, for instructors, examiners and pilots everywhere to vent. How has your transition to ACS gone? Was the FAA's online training helpful? Is ACS better than PTS? Confusing? Waste of time and money? Best thing since IACRA? In short, how do you spell ACS in your world? We'll redact all names, so let it rip! "Be bold, and mighty forces will knock on your hangar door."
