Tower Endorsement

Sport aviation is growing rapidly. But the new sport pilot / light-sport aircraft rules are still a mystery to many flight schools and instructors. To locate a flight school offering sport pilot training and/or light-sport aircraft rentals, click on the "Flight School And Rental Finder" tab above. This is a great place to share ideas on learning to fly, flight schools, costs and anything else related to training.

On another thread, we have been discussing why checkrides need to be given by a DPE, rather than a CFI. This illustrates the answer - a DPE is trained in the minutiae of the FARs. Not necessarily true of CFIs.
The opinions posted are those of one CFI, and do not necessarily represent the FAA or its lawyers.

It is conveniently buried in the student pilot sub part of the regulations, and easily missed if not read in their entirety.
I should note that it was an other instructor DPE on this site that pointed me in the right direction on this endorsement. We can all learn something new from time to time.

True.

I recently learned that student pilots can now log solo time.

In my defense, its only been that way for about 20 years! :wink:

I think what you mean is that student pilots can log their solo time as PIC.
