  • The FAA has just released the 2023 airman knowledge testing numbers and — to little surprise — increases in testing volume were again experienced in most categories, according to a new blog post by Jason Blair, a well-known CFI FAA Designated Pilot Examiner.

    “With active hiring, a very positive outlook on the career path being spread, and training providers ramping up to meet demand, 2023 again looks to include peak pilot production levels,” he reports.

    “When we compare year to year, we see that most tests saw double-digit percentage-based increases in volumes even from 2022-2023,” he continued. “The only of these main tests that did not was the ATP airplane multi- and single-engine tests, although that additionally saw a significant increase.”
