    Unless the pilot also holds a Flight Instructor certificate with appropriate category/class, he may not conduct a Flight Review. ATP may only instruct in air transportation service (i.e. for an air carrier).

    If the US Private Pilot has accomplished a 61.58 proficiency check for the 525, that would satisfy the requirements for a flight review. If he has not done the 61.58 check, then he cannot act as PIC in the 525.

    Kris is correct. An ATP pilot can only instruct in air transportation services meaning under the training programs of either Part 121 or Part 135.

    The question asked about a B525S type rating which is different that a B525 type rating. The “S” on the end of the type rating indicates the pilot can operate that airplane single pilot. In this case, a §61.58 check is not required.

    However, if that pilot decides that he would like to fly the airplane with two pilots then he would have to comply with the provisions of §61.58.

    As Kris pointed out, a §61.58 check will allow the pilot to act as pilot in command of a two pilot flight as well as a single pilot flight.

    To determine if the airplane is configured for single pilot or two pilot operation you must consult the kinds of operation list established for the B525

    Today a 61.58 check is not required to operate the jet single pilot, but on October 31, 2012 the rule change requiring a 61.58 check for single pilot operations takes effect.
