This goes inline with the HQ Training Department, to ensure that you possess the required skills to pass the practical part of the Exam.

For Pilots, you as an examinee need to inform the intended aircraft to perform the exam when the Examiner contacts you to schedule the exam. In order for you to prepare your flight, do all the required calculations and routing, your departure and destination airports will be given between 48h to 24h hours before the planned date.
