Sub-folder: High Performance Aircraft Endorsement

(Some students learn in complex aircraft.)

I certify that I have given _____#_____the instruction required by FAR Section 61.31 (e) and find him competent to act as pilot in command of high-performance airplanes.

Cannot be limited to aircraft type. A person needs only to receive instruction and an endorsement for either an airplane with more than 200 horsepower or an airplane with retractable gear, flaps, and a variable pitch propeller, or both to qualify as PIC in any high performance airplane. A high performance aircraft is any aircraft with more that 200 hp with retractable gear, flaps and a constant speed propeller. A complex airplane is any aircraft with retractable gear, flaps and constant speed propeller. All complex airplanes are considers high performance but not all high performance airplanes are considered complex.

Saying
Finding the time to do it right the first time is much easier than finding the time to do it a second time.
