DPE Reform Working Group Makes Recommendations to ARAC

July 1, 2021 – The DPE Reform Working Group, which is chaired by EAA, recently submitted a recommendation report to the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee (ARAC) with a number of proposed changes to the designated pilot examiner system.

In total, 12 recommendations were submitted to ARAC and ultimately will address DPE selection, standardization, mentorship, and a more efficient and effective landscape for scheduling a practical test across the country. Innovative use of technology and known best practices were all part of the 12 recommendations now heading back to the FAA for implementation.

EAA and the 25 members of the DPE Reform Working Group will be a key resource to the FAA as the agency looks to implement these recommendations moving forward. Read the full report ›
