Can you legally take these flights?


  1. 1) You’re taking some friends up for a night flight. In the past 90 days, you’ve logged 1 night touch-and-go landing and 2 night full-stop landings in your plane. Can you take your friends up on the flight?

    To meet night takeoff and landing experience (61.57(b)), you need to make at least 3 takeoffs and 3 landings to a full stop between 1 hour after sunset and 1 hour before sunrise. Since you’ve only performed 2 night landings to a full stop, you’re not night current to carry passengers.

  2. 2) The following week, you want to take your friends up for a daytime flight. In the past 90 days, you’ve logged 2 night full-stop landings, and 1 night touch-and-go. Can you take your friends up on the day flight?

    For daytime currency, landings do not need to be made to a full stop (61.57(a)). In addition, night landings count toward daytime currency – 61.57(a) doesn’t specify a time landings need to be accomplished.

  3. 3) You got your 3rd class medical today, which also happens to be your 39th birthday. In addition to the remainder of this month, how long can you fly with 3rd class privileges? (assuming you have a flight review as well)

    As long as you haven’t reached your 40th birthday on the date of your medical exam, your 3rd class medical is good for the remainder of this month, plus 60 calendar months (5 years). If you’re 40 or over on the date of your exam, your 3rd class medical is good for 24 calendar months (2 years).

  4. 4) You’ve been hired as a ferry pilot, and you’ll be delivering aircraft this week. What’s the lowest class medical certificate you need for the job?

    To operate as a commercial pilot, you’ll need at least a 2nd class medical certificate.

  5. 5) You passed your private pilot check ride today (congrats!). When will you need your first flight review so you can continue acting as PIC?

    According to FAR 61.56, you can’t act as PIC unless you’ve had a flight review (and endorsement) within 24 calendar months. There are a some exceptions if you get additional certificates and ratings along the way – all of which are listed under FAR 61.56.

  6. 6) You’ve been flying a Piper Seminole (multi-engine aircraft) for flight training, and you’ve logged 23 daytime stop-and-go landings in the past 90 days. Can you take friends on a daytime Cessna 172 (single-engine aircraft) flight based on the multi-engine landings you’ve logged?

    FAR 61.57 (a)(ii) says that your takeoffs and landings need to be performed in an aircraft with the same category, class, and type (if type rating is required). Since you’ve logged landings in an “Airplane, multi-engine land” and a Cessna 172 is an “Airplane, single-engine land”, your landings don’t count for single-engine currency. You’ll need to log three landings in the 172 before taking up your passengers.

Well, those flights didn’t go quite as planned…

You scored %. You should probably brush up on your FARs before you fly…

Pic

Not bad…

You scored %. You’re probably not going to get a violation, but keep studying up on the FARs…

Pic

You pretty much aced these flights! No violation for you.
