Ground instruction for multiple endorsements

Asked by: 1505 views , ,

I have a student who needs a BFR and multiple endorsements. Per the regs the BFR requires one hour of ground school and the endorsements require "ground and flight instruction."

Does it matter how I log the ground instruction? Would it be a good idea to log each separately and have them each be at least one hour, or would it be OK to combine them? Let's imagine I'm giving training for high altitude operations, complex and high performance. In reality, I'm going to instruct until the student is competent to fly the airplane and then sign the required endorsements. Recommendations?

    Log the ground instruction you actually give, identifying the subjects. And, when you feel the student is competent, sign the endorsements.

    Keep in mind that except for the requirement to include Part 91 operating rules in the ground portion, the flight review ground and its subjects are left to your discretion. High altitude, complex and HP ground (and flight) counts as much as anything else.
