Designated Pilot Examiner

A Designated Pilot Examiner is a senior pilot that is able to conduct oral examinations and in flight or flight simulator practical tests with pilot applicants. DPE’s determine if the applicants are suitable to receive a Pilot Certificate or additional rating on their Pilot Certificate, and may have authority to issue the Flight Instructor Certificates and associated additional ratings.
 
Although DPE’s are not FAA employees, they act for the administrator of the FAA and are required to attend biennial recurrent FAA training and annual meetings.
