The Airman Certification Standards (ACS) replaced the Practical Test Standards (PTS) for private pilot on June 15, 2016. The ACS divides each area of operation into three sections: knowledge, risk management, and skill. The ACS lists everything private pilot students should know, consider, and do to prepare for the practical test.
