What is a currency flight?
Capital flight is a large-scale exodus of financial assets and capital from a nation due to events such as political or economic instability, currency devaluation or the imposition of capital controls.
What is the difference between currency and proficiency?
In aviation, we hear a lot about proficiency and about the difference between being current and being proficient. Currency means you meet the letter of the regulations. Proficiency helps keep you and others alive. It’s that simple.

What are the instrument currency requirements?
To remain instrument current, the regulation requires that within the preceding 6 calendar months from the month of the flight, a person perform and log at least; 6 instrument approaches, holding procedures and tasks, and intercepting and tracking courses through the use of navigational electronic systems.
How do you keep currency at night?
2) Night Currency FAR 61.57 requires that in the preceding 90 days, you’ve logged 3 takeoffs and landings to a full stop from the time between one hour after sunset to one hour before sunrise, if you want to carry passengers at night.
How many landings are there in 90 days?
Okay, the rules say that three takeoffs and landings in 90 days are sufficient for a pilot to be technically current in an airplane. The landings do not need to be made to a full stop-unless in a conventionally configured airplane-so touch and goes are acceptable to meet the rule.
What is a current pilot?
Being current under the Federal Aviation Regulations means that you have met the requirements to act as a pilot in command of an aircraft within a certain time period.
How often does a private pilot have to fly to stay current?
While your private pilot’s certificate never expires, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires you to keep it current at least every 24 calendar months.
How often should you fly to stay proficient?
At three landings per 90 days, the regs hardly require enough continuing flight experience to stay sharp. Competence can be measured at different levels, but in my mind a minimum of 2-3 flights per month are desirable to maintain basic piloting skills, particularly for those new to the game.
How many passengers can a private pilot carry?
No Limit To Passengers or Seats A private pilot license allows you to carry as many passengers as your aircraft can legally carry opposed to only one passenger with a recreational license. This opens up more opportunities to use your plane.

Does an instrument rating expire?
Instructors, pilots with type ratings and pilots with an instrument rating all are subject to time limits. This one is placed on certified flight instructor (CFI) certificates, which, unlike the other pilot certificates, do expire.
Can you fail an IPC?
You can ‘t fail an IPC. It’s like taking a FR— if you don’t meet the standards you just don’t finish in that session.
Can two pilots log PIC time?
Pilot-in-command time may be logged by a safety pilot if acting as PIC. The two pilots must agree that the safety pilot is the acting PIC. PIC time may be logged only while the other pilot is “under-the-hood.”
