In order to keep PIC privileges you must:

- act as PIC at least once every 5 years
- Complete a reccurent training program once every 24 months
- Comply with other rules and regulations (IFR currency, medical etc..)


If you have not acted as PIC for 5 years, you can regain PIC privileges if you completed a succesfull flight review within the last 12 months and completed the PSTAR

You can comply withe the reccurent training program requirement by many means (Safety Seminar, Flight Review, Self Study, Written for a license or rating, Flight test for a Rating or license etc...).

You also must complete 5 T/Os and Landings within the previous 6 months. Day or Night as appropriate to carry passengers.

ISTP, you hurt my feelings. :( :cry:

Also, PLEASE keep current chart(s), i.e VNC, VTA, WAC ... as required, currents VFR supplement(s) i.e. CFS, as well as keeping up on current CARs change(s).

It's been all too often I get the "weekend warrior" who's been "flying before i've been born" cutting me off in the circuit and transmitting on the wrong frequency :evil: :smt075

For example: Folks are still calling Collingwood on 22.8 when it's been changed for almost a year now to 22.85 to avoid confusion with other aiports with the same runways. End Rant

What if your recurrent training is in a foreign country such as some sort of check in the US like a BFR, etc or European check?

If you meet the recurrence requirements it shouldn’t matter if they were done on the moon,just provide the paperwork to back it up.

... there's less excuse than ever for that now. With FltPlan Go or paid alternatives (or your current IFR GPS database, if so equipped), you should always have current info with you; the paper is just there as a backup.

"As required"? What exact CARs mandates that local VFR charts and publications be carried on board the aircraft in respect of a day VFR flight? Yes this is mandated for IFR, VFR OTT and Night VFR flights but not for day VFR flights (see CARs 602.60 (1)(b)).

For example, if you were doing day VFR circuits for the 10th time that month at your local aerodrome are you stating that by law you have to carry current VFR charts and CFS on board the aircraft? If so what is your regulatory authority?

CAR 602.71, "The pilot-in-command of an aircraft shall, before commencing a flight, be familiar with the available information that is appropriate to the intended flight."

I'm not aware of any requirement to carry charts for a VFR flight, or that they be current. My personal policy is current digital charts/CFS/etc. in ForeFlight, current paper VNC/VTA, and buy a new CFS in the spring and the fall, or whenever there is a significant update at local airports.

Whether they call on the right frequency or not is of little consequence . Collingwood is Unicom/NORDO Airport so you should not be relying on radio transmissions to make you aware of where the aircraft are within the circuit
