    I agree with @denverpilot ...that was probably what he was looking for but never got. Passed in spite of, not because of, the applicant in that regard.

    Seems like an examiner who wants to pass people. A pity the school won't be using him anymore.

    Sorry just getting back to this... I failed to mention that on several occassions, I asked him to "standby" that I needed to concentrate on what ATC was saying and the plate. The response was that "I should be able to recite this stuff no matter the situation..."

    I'm not faulting the guy, I just posted what my experience was like.

    Then yeah, the flight school should be dumping him.

    If you need more time to setup during a checkride take it. You’re in the drivers seat ;-)
