I seem to remember for my Private checkride in 1994 that I didn't find out where to plan a XC flight to until I showed up, then the examiner gave me 30 minutes to do so. This included plotting the course, choosing checkpoints, calling FSS for the weather and doing the wind, time and fuel calculations. This seems like a lot to do in 30 minutes, so I'm wondering if my memory is faulty. Was this a normal requirement back then? Or was my examiner making up his own rules? If it was a real thing, when did it change?
