3 take off and landings in last 90 days

Asked by: 2813 views FAA Regulations, General Aviation

Can the take off and landings made during the flight review be counted toward the 3 take off and landings rule for acting pic with passengers or now that I am legal to act as pilot in command after the flight review, do the 3 take offs and landings then fly with a passenger ?

    Does 61.57(a)(1) say :

    ==============================
    unless that person has made at least three takeoffs and three landings within the preceding 90 days,

    *** except takeoffs and landings made during a flight review***
    ==============================
    ?

    Yeah, I know – it was a smartass answer. Sorry.

    But it’s also a correct one. There are no limitations stated in 61.57 except that yours are the only hands flying the aircraft during the landing. And that’s exactly what it means.

    As long as you are the “sole manipulator of the controls” you can count the landings during the BFR.
