Just realize that this study and practice exam is designed for those who hold a Part 61 already and that a lot of what is on the full in-person exam is not on this! But it is also helpful!
The aeronautical refresher course after the remote operator test is where non pilots can obtain a glimpse of what they will see on the aeronautical knowledge test.
For those studying for the aeronautical test I've found the Weather Underground site to be one of the better ones for explaining how to read METARS and TAF's.
Metar Tutorial | Weather Underground
For a list of abbreviations to quick reference the last pages of a U.S. Coast Guard document might be helpful; http://www.uscg.mil/auxiliary/missions/auxair/metar_taf.pdf Of course, those that want to go into a lot more depth can obtain the FAA's "Aviation Weather" handbook.
For aeronautical charts the FAA still has the most comprehensive listing of chart types. We may also find this source will be used for the aero test.
For an absolutely simple but effective tutorial about plotting latitude and longitude on a Sectional Chart go here;
For aero charts of your area to reference before flying, try here; SkyVector: Flight Planning / Aeronautical Charts
Of course, to get the whole process started you'll need to open an account here; https://iacra.faa.gov/IACRA/HelpandInfo.aspx?id=5
Excellent choice! I have reviewed it
Must have for people learning or using FAA sectionals
For a basic concept of airspace and what those colors on the charts mean; Activities, Courses, Seminars & Webinars - ALC_Content - FAA - FAASTeam - FAASafety.gov
I foresee many, many hobbyists deciding that they don't really want to get that commercial rating lol!!
If one hasn't been exposed to this stuff it can be difficult. The key is in finding the means to make it less difficult while learning what is required. The FAA does not care how or where people learn, just so they do learn what is required. Once the fundamentals are understood the rest becomes a lot easier.
Be happy we aren't climbing the class and rating ladder. Each step of the way is more difficult than the last. Fortunately there's an existing knowledge foundation from the previous rating to ease the process. In some ways better, some not, we don't have to demonstrate proficiency with a practical exam.
We have to work for it if we really want to be a commercial operator, but that's not a bad thing.
