I took about 4 weeks off from doing checkrides during this Covid-19 outbreak but I'm ready to get back at it. In the interest of keeping everyone healthy, I've come up with a few precautions.
1. Please call me the night before for a few health related questions. I'll just be asking if you are feeling healthy, no fever, cough, or headache. Have you been around anyone that is sick? Basically, If you're not 100%, don't show up. I'll do the same for you.
2. Bring a mask for yourself. We will definitely wear them in the aircraft. I haven't had any problems with headsets. Depending on the room we use for the oral, we may wear them in there as well.
3. As part of the preflight, please wipe down the cockpit with a clorox wipe of some sort (don't touch the avionics with the wipes. It may damage them).
4. I've been doing the majority of the check rides in my office. The main reason is I can keep the amount of foot traffic down to a minimum and be able to clean the area pretty well. If we do the ride at your facility, please pick a room that is large enough that we can be at least 6 feet apart.
I don't want either of us to get sick and I'm hoping these are just temporary measures. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to call text or email.
