I've been in the sand box a while and need some FAR interpretation help. I'm trying to find guidance on a ATP holding a CFI not CFII, teaching instruments in a FTD for a student seeking instrument time for a rating (ATP). The instructor is a former military pilot that use to be an IE (instrument examiner- esseintially the military equivalent of a civilian CFII). Any previous forums or FAA legal interpretation any one can think of? And would he sign the student's log book as CFI or ATP if he were able to teach instruments in the FTD. (Training will be taking place under part 61 not 135).
Has anyone here tried saving money on their helicopter instrument rating by acquiring the majority of the required instrument hours in an airplane? I understand this would make it more difficult to reach the 200 hrs for Robinson's SFAR, but other than that it seems to be a cheap alternative to flying it all in a heli. I'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter, specifically if it was difficult transitioning from flying instruments in an airplane to a helicopter. Thanks.
