Instr. Currency for Checkride


New Member
Folks- anyone know if as a CFI-A (initial) applicant you need to be instrument current to take the practical test?
I know you need currency to give instruction, but for just taking the test, I'm not sure.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Instrument currency relates to being legal to fly in the IFR system. On your CFI-A ride you're not going to be flying "in the system"- just demonstrating how you would teach basic BAI to a student under the hood.
