RAMAC Solo Test

  horizontal rule

 

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of the Solo Test is to have the student pilot exhibit a level of proficiency which will allow future flights without the need for instructor assistance. The test requires that the student demonstrate the ability to safely control model aircraft in the air and on the ground. In addition, the procedure should also encompass an appropriate awareness and knowledge of AMA and RAMAC safety rules.

horizontal rule

APPLICATION:

Any instructor pilot may pronounce a student "ready for solo". However, the instructor recommending such readiness, may not participate as a "check out pilot" for that student. The Solo Test will be administered by any two other instructor pilots. The two Check Out Pilots will jointly observe the test flight, jointly evaluate the flight, but issue only one joint evaluation - - - - "Passed" or "Not Passed". If necessary, retests may be given at any time in the future, even the same day if appropriate. Such retests may be recommended by any instructor who feels that the student has corrected whatever deficiency caused the previous "Not Passed" evaluation.
