INSTRUCTION PAGE FOR CAP PILOT FLIGHT EVALUATION
These instructions specify how to fill out the CAPF 5. CAPR 60-1 requires specific actions and steps to be taken for
the successful completion of a CAPF 5 flight check.
All items for the appropriate type check must be completed indicating S – Satisfactory, U – Unsatisfactory or V –
Verbally briefed. Items or maneuvers not applicable to certain checks (such as power maneuvers for gliders) are
marked as N/A. If a member can satisfactorily perform the more complex maneuvers, less complex maneuvers need
not be accomplished at the discretion of the check pilot. Pilots are evaluated on their ability to satisfactorily perform
the tasks assigned, knowledge of procedures, smoothness, judgment and mastery of the aircraft. Failure to meet the
standards of performance for any task performed will result in an unsatisfactory evaluation.
Acceptable performance standards are contained in the current FAA Practical Test Standards (PTS) book for the
certificate being exercised. Instructor pilots will be expected to meet the standards outlined in the appropriate FAA
Flight Instructor PTS.
CHECK RIDE PROCEDURE The applicant for a CAPF 5 check ride should bring the following materials for review by the check pilot:
1. Pilot Log Book(s) showing evidence of flight review or other required currency/endorsements.
2. FAA certificates and medical.
3. Proof of CAP membership.
4. Blank CAPF 5 (instruction page is optional).
5. Completed AC questionnaire(s) as required by CAPR 60-1.
6. Annual CAPF 5 online written exam results.
The check pilot will review and grade all materials and conduct the CAPF 5. All forms will be returned to the
applicant at the conclusion of the check ride for further distribution and entry into the CAP Pilot Ops Qual system.
Instructions for specific parts of the CAPF 5 are as follows:
Additional CAP Endorsements – More than one may be initialed by the check pilot. Night flight, Mountain flight and other endorsements may be required by applicable wing or region supplements to CAPR 60-1.
Aircraft Category & Class – Possible entries include “Airplane SE Land”, “Airplane ME Land”, “Glider”, etc.
I. Oral Discussion & II. Preflight Preparation – May be completed separately within a 30-day period before the flight check.
IX. Instrument Flight Procedures – Minimum completion standards for this section include at least one partial panel unusual attitude recovery, one holding pattern, and one instrument approach. At the discretion of the check
pilot, this section may be covered verbally if the pilot has satisfactorily completed an FAA recognized flight check
requiring a demonstration of instrument competency within 180 days preceding the CAPF 5 flight check.
XI. Night Flight Operations – Only for familiarization and may be required at the discretion of wing commanders or higher. XVI. Multi-Engine Procedures – Pilots desiring to exercise instrument privileges in multi-engine aircraft shall demonstrate an instrument approach with one engine simulated inoperative.
XVII. Instructor & Check Pilots – On each annual CAPF 5 instructors/check pilots will be given a topic/maneuver by their check pilot on which to make a ground instruction demonstration to FAA CFI PTS
standards. This same maneuver may be demonstrated in the air during the flight portion of the check ride. Landings
will be demonstrated from both seats. XVIII. Orientation Pilot - Review and discuss the syllabus with the pilot before the flight. Select syllabus maneuvers for the pilot to demonstrate in-flight. Ensure applicable CAPR 60-1/CAPP 52-7 restrictions are known by the pilot.
Review of Certificates and Documents – The check pilot must verify each item in this section. Signatures – The CAPF 5 is not complete unless signed by the applicant and evaluator (if the evaluator is a non-
CAP check pilot, a CAP check pilot must also sign to indicate the CAP specific items have been covered).
