Pilot Requirements
used for alignment

The above information has dealt mainly with the aircraft's requirements. We also need to mention the pilot's requirements. Pilots need to comply with the following:

  • Pilot certificate - with appropriate ratings, and in your personal possession.
  • Medical certificate - current and appropriate for the type of flight to be conducted and in your personal possession (if required for the operation).
  • Flight review or its equivalent - with appropriate logbook endorsement
  • Recent flight experience - as required to act as PIC for carrying passengers. PICs must meet the appropriate requirements of 14 CFR 61.57, which include:
  • (a) a takeoff and landing requirement for any passenger carrying flight. (Remember, you need three takeoffs and landings as the sole manipulator of the controls in an aircraft of the same category and class and, if a type rating is required, of the same type, within the preceding 90 days. For tailwheel aircraft, the landings must be to a full stop. For carrying passengers at night, the required three takeoffs and landings must be made to a full stop in the same category and class to be used, and they must be accomplished duing the period beginning one hour after sunset and ending one hour before sunrise.)
  • (b) instrument currency for any IFR operation as PIC. (Remember the requirements of 14 CFR 61.57(c).)
