The FAA issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) yesterday that seeks to update, modify and clarify Parts 61 and 141, the sections devoted to pilot and flight instructor training and certification. The majority of the more than 200 proposed changes are minor, though there are more significant changes, such as the addition of night-vision-goggle training requirements, as well as changes to instrument currency requirements. The new regulations also propose to alter the requirements for obtaining both an initial and additional type rating solely in a simulator. In addition, the NPRM seeks to define more clearly which simulators can be used for flight training and instrument currency, and to what extent they can be used. Comments are due by May 8.
