If you have not updated your profile since joining, then the information we have on file is data you supplied when you initially became a member. Our database is not networked with the FAA and or other government agencies, so we are not kept current on personal informational changes. For information that you cannot change in your profile (BFR Dates, Medical Dates), email that information to Member Support.
is the 90-day Currency Rule?
In an effort to promote safety through currency, we require that all members fly at least once in a 90-day period. Our scheduling software will prevent you from scheduling our aircraft if you have not flown in the preceding 90-days. If you fly with another club or fly similar private aircraft, that time counts toward your currency.
If you fly
professionally you can count your flight
time toward your currency, IF:
- The aircraft DOES NOT require a type rating.
- The aircraft has a gross takeoff weight of less than 12,500lbs.
is involved in the 90-day Currency
It depends on a number of factors, such as length of time since your last flight, total number of hours and general aviation competency to name a few. The flight profile is at the discretion of the Flight Instructor performing the Currency Evaluation. Depending upon your overall skill and competency, it could be a simple as doing some pattern work or a full-blown checkout. We are a safety-oriented club.
