App. At each airport x 3 different kinds of approaches using nav. systems x With a filed IFR flight plan ¾ 3 hours in last 2 cal. Months prior to the practical test (§61.65) Instrument PIC recency of experience: ™ Last 6 calendar months (under actual/simulated instrument or Flight Training Device/simulator, in the same aircraft category), logged: ("6 HITS") ƒ 6 instrument approaches. ƒ Holding procedures & tasks. ƒ Intercept & Track courses through the use of electronic navigation Systems. ™ Or, using an ATD (basically an approved PC-based flight simulator + hardware) in the last 2 calendar months prior to the flight: ƒ 3 hours instrument experience. ƒ Holding procedures & tasks. ƒ 6 instrument approaches. ƒ 2 unusual attitude recoveries in a descending Vne condition. ƒ 2 unusual attitude recoveries in an ascending stall speed condition. ™ Not current looking back 6 months? You can still log the requirements (6 HITS) and get current with a safety pilot (under simulated conditions), instructor or pilot examiner. ™ The safety pilot must be at least a private pilot with the appropriate category and class. He must have adequate vision forward and to each side of the aircraft. When using a safety pilot, the aircraft must have dual-control system. ™ Looking back 12 cal. months not current? You need an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) by a CFII, examiner or approved person. ™ Certain IPC tasks, found in a table at the end of the instrument PTS, can be completed in an approved flight simulator or FTD. However, a full IPC can only be conducted in certain full-motion simulators or in the actual aircraft, since some tasks (such as circling maneuvers) cannot be completed on low-end FTDs and simulators. ™ To carry passengers as PIC ƒ 3 takeoffs and landings in last 90 days in the same category, class and type (if type rating required). ƒ At periods between 1 hour after sunset to 1 hour before sunrise: 3 takeoffs and landings to a full stop during 1 hour after sunset to 1 hour before sunrise in the last 90 days. ™ To act as PIC – flight review in the last 24 cal.
