    EnRoute PV Discussion

    Re: PV for enroute? Boomer is correct. Unfortunately nobody passed the retake, and it sucks because it wasn't a lack of knowhow. Your nerves are major. Plus, when you get your map for nonradar, learn it well, and learn as many of the location identifiers,that are posted in the rooms, as you...

    EnRoute PV Discussion

    Re: PV for enroute? I took it yesterday. We had 4 people not make it, and they were not "dumb" people. Kenny, the FAA guy that grades your retake, told our class that you can have 1 separation error. That includes ac to ac, ac to airspace, having to be prompted to make a point-out, prompted...
