As a general guide, go to the...

Rings true with what I see in aero-medical. I see any number of recently retired airline captains who like the idea of a little light aero-medical flying to keep their hand in! (And it's always their...

Yes - you have to transition. Get it started now - "just" a couple of forms with copies of stuff you didn't know you needed - because it could take a while.

"Restrictions" is a vague term - lots of us have restrictions like "Reading correction must be available" - no big deal.

No - you cannot. The only time you can log copilot is when you are part of a formal multi-crew operation - being when the AOC requires it (commercial op) or the aircraft type rating reqires 2 pilots,...

Unlike most other exams, IREX is about what will keep you alive. Confusing altitude v height on an approach will kill you. And turning up somewhere without enough fuel to wait-out the weather - that...
