    Yeee! Haaaw!, 88%. I had a lot of VFR Sectional Chart questions and some METAR weather chart questions and a few that are not even mentioned on the FAA Study Guide.
    Took me 56 Minutes.
    Now I have a expired Sports Pilots and a two year UAG PIC both!

    I think its so lame to have to study vfr charts and METAR weather. We dont need that info to fly. I think the FAA is trying to weed out people for no reason.
    Anyway congrats!

    Weather I can agree with you, because I can look at the sky at the time of flight and know if it's wise and safe, although knowing some types of information about different clouds and what will and can quickly follow them in matters of minutes is very helpful.( you living in East Texas know how it can go from blue sky's to wind and rain in a matter of minutes) This can be of help for newbies.
    As far as VFR Charts, they are very helpful and mandatory to know if you plan to fly commercially or even as a hobbyist! As the charts can tell you the type of airspace you are in, and thus know if you do or do not have to get permission to fly in that area. It will also help you in your needs to request waivers to fly in controlled airspace my friend!;)
