No solo, no pdpic, lots of pic for multi commercial applicants?

Asked by: 528 views , , ,
Commercial Pilot, FAA Regulations

Hi! My seniorities!

I have a question about aeronautical experience for commercial cert applicant.

I know applicants need some solo or pdpic time.

My friend moved from flight safety school right before checkride after receiving part 141 gruduation cert and endorsement and trying to change to part 61 at here Hillsboro. (I'm not sure if she can get checkride using her endorsement from florida at here oregon with any DPE other than DPE which is designated by flight safety)

Problem is she doesn't have any solo or pdpic but has multi private and pic time a lot due to flight safety school policy.

Can I give her endorsement for part 61 without any other extra flight for solo or pdpic?

    I don’t really know what you are asking, but:

    If you are asking if properly logged flight time from a 141 program counts for Part 61 purposes, it does.

    If you are asking if you, as an instructor, may endorse someone for solo without complying with 61.195(d)(1), you may not.
