See the "Commercial Solo" thread. According to the defunct Part 61 FAQ's, no, because student pilots are exempted from those endorsement requirements. Moreover, you endorse the student for a particular airplane, making the high performance endorsement redundant.I have a student that is learning to fly in a Cherokee Six. This is the first student I have done in a High-performance airplane.
This may be a crazy question, but will he have to have a High-Performance sign off to solo?
Again, the FAQ's have long exempted student pilots from all the endorsements required by 61.31, based on 61.31(k). Rather a moot point, though, because the pilot will certainly need them once he has his non-student certificate.Just out of curiosity, is this the same way you do it for someone learning in a tailwheel Piper Cub? Tailwheel endorsment before they can solo?
For me, the practical answer comes down to:
Myabe you don't have to, but there is not even one good reason not to (unless you know about an ink shortage I haven't heard about).
