B License Written Test Can't Post

I can't find any information on what to study for the B license written test. Does anyone know what areas of the SIM I should study in order to prepare?

I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters.

I believe most of it is in section 9. Read up on the FAR's particularly 105. And also on the first page of every section there's something about "who needs this" and wherever you see something like license applicants, read it.

In addition to what has already ben said, pay particular attention to those items in the SIM that say what you can do with a B as opposed to a lower or higher license. Things like pack opening alittudes, night jumps and stuff like that.

There's a page at the start of the SIM that tells you which sections you need to study.

In addition to what people've said here, I'd recomend you pay attention to the cloud clearance requirements.

I haven't been able to find that page in the new SIM. Which page is it exactly?

Weird. It looks like they took it out in the lastest SIM.

In my older, out of date one it recomended for a B license you read Section 2, 3-1, 4, 8-2, 8-3, 8-4, 8-5, 9-1, 9-2, 9-3, 11, 12

It does not appear that the sections changed, so that should still be correct. I don't think there were any changes in the 'b' license since my SIM was published, just in the 'a' license.

That would be true of all the license tests.

There's a relatively easy way to remember the FAR 105.17 requirements though.

Just put an image in your head of three Cessna 152s flying below 10,000 feet above mean sea level and five F-111s flying above 10,000 feet MSL.

Got the picture in your head? Ok. Here's what it means.

Below 10,000 feet above mean sea level, you need to have 3 miles of visibility and stay away from clouds by 1 thousand feet above, 5 hundred feet below and 2 thousand feet horizontally.

Above 10,000 MSL, this changes to five miles visibility and stay away from the clouds by 1 thousand feet above, 1 thousand feet below and 1 mile horizontally.

Thanks Quade, I've been trying to figure out a way to make that easy to remember since I started instructing.

Actually there is a what you should study page that summarises it all. In the 2011 version it was towards the back.

I say go for it. It really wasn't hard at all. Like one question had me slightly stumped for a minute but then I sorted it out.

Do a good job!!
