This just released:

FAA Publishes Revisions to Flight Training Rules



Today, the Federal Register published revisions to the Code of Federal
Regulations (parts 61, 91, and 141) (available at:
http://frwebgate2.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/TEXTgate.cgi?WAISdocID=RuAi8b/0/1/0&W
AISaction=retrieve ) that revise certain training, qualification,
certification, and operating requirements for pilots, flight instructors,
ground instructors, and pilot schools. "This final rule is a result of the
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) issued in early 2007," said John D.
Lynch, of FAA's Certification and General Aviation Operations Branch. "These
changes have been in the works since we issued the previous final rule
changes to parts 61 and 141 in August 1997."



Lynch reports the majority of the rule changes in parts 61, 91, and 141 are
to "further FAA's safety mission, incorporate international flight standards,
and respond to recent technological advances in aviation. Many of the changes
reflect and incorporate comments and suggestions made by trade organizations,
flight schools, manufacturers, individual pilots, and others." FAA received
nearly 2,000 comments from across a wide range of the aviation community in
response to the NPRM issued in February 2007.



Of the 102 changes, Lynch says, "One of the more significant changes
establishes training and qualification requirements for pilots and flight
instructors who use night vision goggles. Another significant change is
clarification on the use of aviation training devices, flight training
devices, and flight simulators for maintaining recent instrument experience.



In addition, the revisions address U.S. military pilots qualifying for flight
instructor certificates based on their military instructors pilot
qualifications as well as refines and clarifies provisions for current and
former U.S. military pilots to qualify for FAA pilot certificates and
ratings.



In a few days, the final rule will be available at:

I've been trying to read through the section on instrument currency as it
relates to maintaining currency in a combination of aircraft and sim (gotta
find the definitions of "flight simulator", "flight training device" and
"aviation training device").

Gonna be interesting to figure out what this all really means.

Andy

Andy -- I haven't even begun to look at it. After next week for me, probably.

Huh? I'm missing something. I thought John Lynch retired five years or so ago.

>> Who uses night vision goggles?

NVGs are in use by some EMS helicopter operators on a voluntary basis, although there's a push on to require them for night EMS operations when conditions indicate they'd be beneficial.

Living in California for many years, I have read about numerous helicopter military training accidents utilizing night vision goggles.

There is my guess.

Reminds me, at OSH there was a synthetic vision camera and display that one company was trying to market to GA.
Anyone have any experience with these?

Bob,
We use them at Sheriff's Aviation on a regular basis. We have about a dozen pairs and they are great! Helicopter crews have even started flying rescue missions in mountainous terrain after dark and landing on ridges to drop off and pick up ground teams.

Boston Medflight uses them and my friend has said that it has made all the difference in their being able to do scene work at night. Much, much safer.
