Sunday, May 27, 2018

On April 24, 2018, the FAA issued a notice that 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, the notice 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.

Changes to the Commercial Pilot – Airplane Airman Certification Standards (ACS) and to the Flight Instructor Practical Test Standards (PTS) for Airplane have been published updating the standards to agree with this policy change.
