PPC expiry question

Post by 172pilot » Mon Apr 23, 2012 12:56 pm

This is a sample test question I have, and i'm not sure of the answer.

If your PPC has been expired for anywhere between 6-24 months, what is needed to regain it?

1. Briefing on changes to the airplane/operations since your last flight
2. 3 t/o and landings
3. Recurrent PPC training
4. All of the above

Hey no problem. What really helps me navigate the cars is the reference index, downloadable here.

I printed it out and keep it in a plastic doutang with some extra paper for notes.
