NDPER examiners are authorized to accept applications for practical tests to be conducted in vintage aircraft without regard to FSDO or regional boundaries.
NDPER examiners are responsible for all travel arrangements associated with the conduct of a practical test to be conducted in a vintage airplane. A DPE may conduct pilot proficiency checks in each aircraft or simulator in which the examiner is currently authorized to conduct certification practical tests. It is not sent to the NEB. An examiner may be designated to serve outside the U.
An examiner who is designated to serve outside the U. Tests conducted by an examiner designated to serve outside the U.

However, when conducting functions as an NDPER examiner in vintage aircraft, the examiner operates solely under the direction and authority of AGL Inspectors will fly with examiners on request to resolve questions on techniques, procedures, and standards.
Examiners should avail themselves of the opportunity to forge a strong working relationship with FSDO inspectors and keep themselves informed of new developments or changes. An inspector will assist the examiner in developing evaluation skills and knowledge of practical testing of applicants. Inspectors will avoid requiring an arbitrary recheck or an inordinate number of rechecks because of the economic hardship placed on applicants.
Rechecks will be requested only on the basis of facts that clearly support the need for the recheck. Examiner Recheck. If the performance of a pilot who has been certificated by a pilot examiner is found unsatisfactory because of an accident, incident, or other significant event; or, if other evidence reveals a deficient performance by an examiner, a flight check of that examiner may be required by an inspector.
A system of designation numbers will be used to identify the region and FSDO where the examiner is designated. The FSDO maintains a file for each examiner under its jurisdiction. The file may contain paper copies of some items. Other records or information may be accessed through an electronic file.
Electronic File. The Administrator is empowered by 49 USC d to delegate to private persons any function relating to the examination, inspection, and testing of airman applicants, subject to any regulation, supervision, and review which the Administrator may prescribe.

A record may be made of any meeting held. The examiner may submit comments or propose corrections to the record. The written notification to the examiner should indicate the reasons for the termination or nonrenewal.
The examiner may request a review of the matter by the regional Flight Standards division manager. Reasons for Termination. The examiner should be notified of these deficiencies and given an opportunity to correct the deficiencies within a day period. The examiner may retain the Certificate of Designation.

All pilot examiners must meet the requirements of sections For designations requiring a medical certificate, the designee must maintain at least a third-class medical certificate throughout the duration of the designation.
Any required flight instructor certificate must be kept current for the duration of the designation. General Criteria. In addition to meeting the preceding technical qualifications, an examiner candidate must: to accidents, incidents, and violations; industry and the community; hold a valid second-class medical certificate FOR INITIAL DESIGNATION, except in the case of a designation limited to examining in free balloons, gliders, or simulators; no airman medical certificate is required for free balloons or gliders if the candidate certifies that the airman has no known physical defects that would make the airman unable to pilot a free balloon or glider safely , and another type of piloting service such as executive or air carrier, or serve as a part or check airman.
The NEB accepts and evaluates applications from persons applying for initial designation under the provisions of this Order. The NEB will advise the applicant by letter whether or not the applicant meets the criteria for the designation sought.
If the applicant does not meet the applicable criteria, the NEB will advise the applicant how the deficiency may be corrected. The application is processed as though it were an initial application.
The applicant should not take the predesignation test until receiving a letter of acceptance from the NEB.

The applicant should request the Pilot Examiner Test - Airplane, Rotorcraft, Glider, or Balloon, appropriate to the designation sought.
The cost of the predesignation test is borne by the applicant. The applicant must forward the test results to the NEB within 10 days of the test date.

After 2 years, candidates not selected for designation will be deleted from the pool and must repeat the application process in order to apply for reassignment to the candidate pool.
The decision of the appeals board is final. The practical evaluation assists the FAA to determine if the candidate is competent to apply current practical test requirements, procedures, and performance standards in the aircraft for which authorization is sought.
The FSDO will schedule the practical evaluation upon selecting a candidate for designation. Examiners who are designated before attending and completing the initial standardization course will be issued an LOA with an expiration date that coincides with the scheduled completion date of the initial standardization course.
If a candidate fails to successfully complete the course, any previously conferred examining authority will be rescinded and the candidate will not be reconsidered for designation as a pilot examiner for at least 12 calendar-months thereafter. A course completion certificate will be given only to those persons who have completed all phases of the training, including classroom exercises and the final written examination.
