The FAA’s Airman Testing division has disclosed it has been working in cooperation with its testing vendor, PSI Services, to scientifically assess existing FAA Airman Knowledge Tests. 

Assessments of the Private Pilot Airplane and Commercial Pilot Airplane Knowledge Tests have been completed. Pan Am Flight Academy just obtained a new Level D B737 MAX-8 simulator to enhance its commercial pilot training offerings. The MAX-8 allows the school to provide up-to-date training with a "state-of-the-art simulator", and should be ready for student use by July. U.S. military aviation officials are evaluating the effectiveness and possible culpability of a U.S.-run program by which foreign aviators are taught, ostensibly, to speak, read, and communicate in the English language. Personnel of the U.S. Air Force’s Aviation Safety Division are currently looking into the quality of the instruction provided by the USAF-led Defense Language Institute’s English Language Center. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
