Change in CFI PTS


Well-Known Member
The FAA has revised the flight instructor practical test standard to clarify when a complex aircraft is required for the checkride, and when it is not.

Changes published Jan. 15 clarify that a complex aircraft is notrequired when adding an airplane class rating to an existing certificate when the pilot has already been certified to operate complex aircraft.

For example, a CFI seeking to add a single-engine airplane rating to an existing certificate with a multiengine rating need not perform the single-engine checkride in a complex aircraft.
