I don't think they took the helicopter pilot's certificate while waiting. The 150 owner I flew with kept his certificate while waiting to schedule the 709 ride.

No the FAA doesn't take certificate action with a pending Title 49 USC Sect. 44709 reexamination.

The 44709 check (ground or air) affords the airman to demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and/or abilities that were required to meet the original certificate requirements.

For example, a private pilot taxis off the edge of a runway and dings a nosewheel. The FAA inspector might discuss with the pilot proper taxiing techniques as discussed in Section 2-9 of the Airplane Flying Handbook. And might spend .1 or .2 hours having the pilot demonstrate the ability to taxi as required in the PTS for Private Pilots (FAA-S-8081-14B), Task D.

If the pilot does OK, that's the end of it. If not the FAA then might propose suspending the airman's certificate until he/she gets enough dual and solo practice in the art of taxiing. I don't think, in my 32 years as an FAA inspector, I ever proposed a certificate action following a 609/709 ride.

Best
