NVG Instructor endorsement

Recommended Posts

General searches don't list much recently, as far as a year and half ago, but does anyone have updated information on NVG Instructor endorsements? Is this strictly through courses, are there DPE's out there to contact, etc?

 

Thanks

The last word was under FAA notice N 8900.320, listed in part below. For the latest contact, Shawn Hayes in the Airmen Certification and Training Branch (AFS-810) at (202) 267-0863 or via email at shawn.hayes@faa.gov.

 

7 a. Person Who is Authorized by the FAA. For the purposes of § 61.195(k)(7), the FAA considers “a person who is authorized by the FAA to provide that logbook endorsement” as a person who holds one of the following positions and meets the requirements of subparagraphs 7b and 7c. These FAA programs under which these individuals hold their positions are the means by which the FAA can maintain oversight of the authorized NVG endorsement function.

 

(1) A Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE).

 

(2) A chief instructor, assistant chief instructor, or check instructor operating in an approved 14 CFR part 141 NVG course, when properly qualified in that course.

 

Note: Because § 61.195 addresses the limitations and qualifications of certificated flight instructors under part 61, check pilots under 14 CFR part 135 and Training Center Evaluators (TCE) under 14 CFR part 142 will not be authorized to provide the endorsement required by § 61.195(k)(7). These individuals, if properly authorized, may still be considered authorized instructors for the purpose of providing NVG training and endorsements required by § 61.31(k)(1) or (2).

 

7 b. Qualifications for a Person Who is Authorized by the FAA to Issue the Logbook Endorsement Required by § 61.195(k)(7).

 

(1) Personnel must be able to show that they meet the requirements of § 61.195(k)(1)–(6) in order to initially receive authorization to issue the logbook endorsement required by

§ 61.195(k)(7), and must continue to meet these requirements in order to maintain authorization.

 

(2) Personnel must meet the requirements of subparagraph 7a.

 

(3) Personnel must be authorized in writing by the Administrator, as outlined below, in order to issue the logbook endorsement required by § 61.195(k)(7).

 

7 c. Authorization in Writing. The authorization to issue the logbook endorsement required by § 61.195(k)(7) must be accomplished by the method described below. Only the Administrator can issue the authorization to give the endorsement required by § 61.195(k)(7). The LOA will be issued using the Web-based Operations Safety System (WebOPSS) when issuing an FAA authorization to an individual to issue the pilot logbook endorsements required by § 61.195(k)(7), provided he or she meets the requirements of this notice. Appendix A, Sample LOA B011, Authorization to Issue the Logbook Endorsement Required by 14 CFR § 61.195(k)(7): 14 CFR Part 61, has an example of the LOA that will be generated in WebOPSS.

 

9. Disposition. This is a special-emphasis notification. The Flight Standards Service (AFS) will incorporate the information in this notice into Order 8900.1 before this notice expires. In addition, AFS is in the process of publishing additional guidance regarding the certification of airmen wishing to utilize NVGs. This will include an advisory circular (AC) and an update to Order 8900.1. Direct questions pertaining to the information in this notice to Shawn Hayes in the Airmen Certification and Training Branch (AFS-810) at (202) 267-0863 or via email at shawn.hayes@faa.gov.
