Complex Endorsement Earned

No person may act as pilot in command of a complex airplane (an airplane that has a retractable landing gear, flaps, and a controllable pitch propeller; or, in the case of a seaplane, flaps and a controllable pitch propeller), unless they have…

Received and logged ground and flight training from an authorized instructor in a complex airplane, or in a flight simulator or flight training device that is representative of a complex airplane, and has been found proficient in the operation and systems of the airplane.


Received a one-time endorsement in the pilot’s logbook from an authorized instructor who certifies the person is proficient to operate a complex airplane.

Well I am happy to say that on August 1st I got this out of the way. I earned my complex endorsement in a Piper Arrow, bringing my total time in the Arrow to 6 hours…just 4 hours short of what is  needed to fly the plane as PIC according the flying club rules. I have reserved the plane for 6 hours this Saturday in order to satisfy that requirement as quickly as possible.



  1. Congrats Barry! Another step in a fulfilling journey, I’m sure – keep up the great work!

  2. Thanks Dave! Posted more today…see you soon!
