Sport NPRM

Postby mhaleem » Thu Jan 29, 2015 9:10 am

Hello. Is this move (NPRM) to have dual hours count from Sport CFI's dead in the water??? It appears a number of other things have been placed on the FAA's priority list.

It's apparently been integrated into a part 61 rewrite that was due out over a year ago.

For sport pilots who want to earn a higher certificate level, the hours spent in sport pilot training would count toward aeronautical experience requirements for a recreational or private pilot certificate—a change AOPA and other aviation organizations petitioned the FAA to make as far back as January 2011. In addition, sport-pilot-only flight instructors would be allowed to provide training on control and maneuvering by reference to instruments to their sport pilot students under certain conditions.

Is this saying that training provided by a SP-CFI counts towards higher certificates?

That's how I read it, Bruce. If so, the NPRM is even more generous than what Helen, Paul Hamilton, others, and I asked for in our joint AOPA/EAA/NAFI petiton 5 years ago. In that one, we merely requested credit for instruction from a Subpart K CFI on tasks for which the SP and PP PTS requirements were the same.
The opinions posted are those of one CFI, and do not necessarily represent the FAA or its lawyers.
