|What is the Instrument Proficiency Check?
N registered PA31
Light aircraft at Oxford
An FAA qualified pilot may not serve as pilot
in command in instrument conditions unless he has logged recent instrument
experience. For these purposes 'recent experience' means at least six
instrument approaches, holds, and intercepting and tracking courses with
navigation systems, within the past 6 months. A pilot can restore his instrument
privileges by taking an instrument proficiency check (IPC).
The IPC consists of a number of instrument tasks.
The IPC can be taken outside the United States and a non-US registered aircraft can be used.
The material above is a simplification of the regulations and the full details are given in Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations - the FAR - part 61.57
