    DOT Meal Allowance Tax Deduction?

    We claim it in EMS.....So do firefighters, cops, etc. If you do not have a set unpaid time for your meals, you are required to stay in the building, and you can be called away from your meal, then the answer is usually, yes. You claim the nearest city's per diem rate. So most ATC locations...

    New, looking for help

    If you do it in the absolute minimum requirements, then yes, it would be cheaper. If you're not ready for your checkride and take a little extra time, then you've probably already met the Private standards. I was a full time CFI for over 5 yrs and I can't tell you how many people we had...

    New, looking for help

    Do you know how many Recreational Pilot certificates have been issued? Less than 250.........out of over 600,000 FAA pilot certificates. It is an almost worthless certificate and, in the long run, won't cost you more than a few extra hundred bucks to get the Private. In fact, you're going to...

    Nah, someone else can take it if they wish. I'm not out to find the answer, just curious. Yeah, Nov 4 in St. Charles. We started at 8:30, and I was out of there around 1pm as well. Took three 5-10 minute breaks. I was the first one out, but wasn't feeling bad about it......was more...

    Took AT-SAT today... How do I feel???

    I am convinced there is something underlying in this test...... I thought I would have got a 100 compared to the other results people gave. I got a 97%, and I'm not a genious or anything, but I know I got all the math, angles, dials. Only guessed on one analogy. The letter factory was easy...

    AT-SAT Score Turn-Around Times

    Me too.......but if you go to the "test information" page of ASAP, it shows that the "test received from contractor" was the day after I took it. Someone in OKC just didn't get around to punching them in, or unlocking them for us to see.

    Part of ATSAT That Makes you most Nervous

    Took it this morning in Chicago...... Dials were easy, angles were easy, and math was easy (only got one question that had a decimel or couldn't be easily divided.) Letter factory was fun, but those questions were hard!!! Once you got past a big crunch time on it, and everything was above...

    Post test dates and location here

    Nov 4 in St. Charles, IL. I was selected for Memphis, but couldn't make any of the dates. Chuck at Robinson was nice enough to switch me to Chicago. They could not forward me the email with all the info since that came from the FAA. If someone has a copy, please forward it to me. I know the...

    Anyone get their AT-SAT invite yet? / How many applicants?

    So what happens if you selected "Other" on your application? Then I entered the nearest major city that wasn't on the list. Will they pick the nearest and send it to you? Chicago and Indy are about the same distance for me, but I'd rather go to Chicago. Can I switch if they pick Indy for me...
