The FAA approved an update to Part 61 that allows the use of an Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD) to maintain instrument currency without the supervision of a flight instructor. Under this rule, instrument-rated pilots can maintain instrument currency within the standard 6-month window using an AATD in the same manner as flying an airplane. 

This significantly reduces the cost and burden on an instrument-rated pilot of staying current. For those of you considering an instrument rating, go for it! This rule will make it much cheaper to keep up your skills to fly in the clouds. Please note that if the simulator is being used to log time towards a rating (i.e. training towards a private or instrument rating), an instructor MUST still be present. Once a simulator checkout has been complete, renters will be able to use the ALSIMSR20 or ELITE PI-235 without instructor supervision, in order to practice and log instrument approaches toward currency.
