How do I know if I need an Instrument Proficiency Check?
You are Instrument Current if you have performed six instrument approaches, holding procedures and tasks, and intercepting and tracking courses through the use of navigational electronic systems within the preceding 6 calendar months.
If you have determined that you aren’t current, you have another 6 calendar months to complete 6 approaches, tracking and intercepting, and holding before you have to complete an Instrument Proficiency Check.
During this 6 month grace period, you cannot act as PIC under IFR or in conditions less than VFR.
How can I become current again?
You can complete an Instrument Proficiency Check with one of our CFIIs.
How long will my Instrument Proficiency Check take?
There is no minimum required amount of time for an IPC. A good rule of thumb is to plan for at least 90 minutes of ground time and at least 2 hours of flight time.
