Notice to all Commercial Students and CFIs in the making:

The FAA has recently issued a NOTICE that affects your Commercial Practical Test or Flight Instructor Practical Test.

NOTICE N 8900.463

 SUBJECT:

Use of a Complex Airplane During a Commercial Pilot or Flight Instructor Practical Test

 Purpose of this Notice. This notice outlines a change in policy regarding testing applicants for a commercial pilot or flight instructor certificate, regardless whether the training was received under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 61 or 141. Specifically, it outlines the policy which no longer requires applicants for a commercial pilot certificate with an airplane single-engine rating to provide a complex or turbine-powered airplane for the associated practical test and no longer requires applicants for a flight instructor certificate with an airplane single-engine rating to provide a complex airplane for the practical test.

Please take a moment to review this NOTICE as it may affect you or a fellow pilot with regard to training costs and the necessity for such aircraft on your next check ride.
