So I've been looking into this Envoy thing, and thus they sent me some info, of which contained a minimum checklist for their target audience. Now of course they want 100 hours night, but I guess military guys are having trouble with that one, because this "optional night flying method" as they put it, just seems strange!?

Ok, it seems once you have 20 night takeoffs and landings, you can count each additional night takeoff and landing for 1 hour of the night flying minimum (up to 25 hours)?

I don't know,...seems to me (as Kramer would say) "that's cooky talk!" :o

Well after fifteen and a half years they finally went from saying "the pilot shortage is coming", to "the pilot shortage is here!"  Yep, 2018, year of the pilot shortage!  

 

,...didn't seem that big a shortage though?  In fact if you blinked, you'd of missed it,...me, I was out taking a wiz,...dammit!  :lol:

This is an exception to the night time requirement for ATP in the FARs.  Part 61.159( b )  I would actually see this as an issue for civilian pilots meeting the night minimums, depending on your line of work.  I recall all of our pilots and aircrew being very night current; at least in the Marine Corps.

Hmmm, its in the FAR's huh, damn! Still seems like a weird tradeoff though? May as well just say 75 hours night with at least 45 takeoffs and landings then?
