Give CAE and Flight Safety a call... they provide accurate information. Well known 142 schools are recognized by both flight departments and insurance carriers.

601s are getting pretty thin and often flown by dodgy operations.

Youíre going to need full initial classes. You need an initial after 3 years for part 91 and after 2 years for 135.

JTwift, can you reference the FAA Regulation that states this? I admit that I don't know all the regs by heart, but I have never seen a 3 year or 2 year mandate to retake an initial course. Is this a part 142 school requirement?

I donít know about P91, but I think it is 3 years by our rules (P135).

Yep - three of them that the USAF bought Flight Inspection years ago for the DET 1 upstairs doing the war zone stuff and the FAA flies them Internationally (Europe and awhile ago in the Pacific) and Domestically.

As you say - they are getting long in the tooth though and are looking at replacing them with either more -605s (or maybe -650s so says possible rumor control)

Ok, here's the update answer. 60 months for 135 and you need a new initial class. For part 91, there's technically no expiration, as long as you can pass the required training for a recurrent.

However, insurance/underwriters may have a say in those numbers.

So, yeah, 60 months/infinity are the technically correct answers. I HAVE had people come through initial just outside a 3 year window because their respective employers required it.

Good luck!
