DPEdirect.com was the brainchild of a certified flight instructor (CFI) who became frustrated with consistently finding it very difficult to find an available designated pilot examiner (DPE) for his flight students. Often to no fault of their own, DPEs are completely swamped with the demand for their services and find it very hard to keep their heads above water. There are relatively so few DPEs compared to the need for pilots needing to complete their practical tests (checkrides).
This problem quickly became an idea to streamline the checkride scheduling process not only for the student pilot and his or her CFI, but also very much so for the DPE.
Scheduling checkrides should not be the hassle that it is, that’s why we offer this service to alleviate this hassle for everyone involved – the student, the CFI and the DPE. Your focus should be on flying safely and successfully, NOT making multiple and frustrating phone calls, texts and emails trying to schedule a checkride.
DPEdirect.com was created by pilots for pilots. We hope you find this service very useful as you progress on to your aviation career goals, and good luck on your next checkride!
