FAA Designated Examiners
The Greater Phoenix Area has a large group of FAA Designated Examiners (DPE’s) that conduct checkrides for our students. Normally, our Flight Department will schedule checkrides for our students. If you are coming in for a finish-off rating or accelerated course, you might want to pre-arrange a checkride with an examiner prior to booking your travel.
The FAA maintains a website where you can search for DPE’s. It can be found here. Please be sure to select “WP-07 – SCOTTSDALE FLT STDS DIST OFFICE.”
