CFI reinstatement checkride

Asked by: 2704 views FAA Regulations, Flight Instructor


Is it true that taking a FIRC course, after the CFI certificate had expired, can replace the ground portion of the reinstatement checkride?

Thank you,

    Where do you see this stated in the regulations? I don’t see it stated anywhere.

    That’s exactly what I’m looking for. So far I was unable to confirm it so I guess that’s my answer..

    What about the written test? Is that something that has be redone as well as part of the reinstatement?

    61.199 deals with reinstatements. No requirement to retake the written.

    No endorsement is required either unless the reinstatement resulted in a disqualification.

    Not even 61.39 to show some kind of training was given prior to the checkride?
