A CFI can give flight instruction without a current medical as long as the pilot can act as PIC, i.e. has a current medical, is rated in the airplane, and has a current BFR. However, instrument instruction could not be given, as the CFI(I) becomes a “required flight crewmember” (safety pilot) as soon as the student pops the hood on, and therefore the CFI(I) must meet the same criteria.
As an active CFII Cirrus SR20 owner (N163CD) with Wings Aloft training, I would be able to provide training in your aircraft. I cannot provide Wings Aloft training. But, I could probably do Instrument Checks and BFRs in conjunction with a West Coast Fly-in or you could fly to San Diego. I’m based at MYF. Hope I’m not stepping out of bounds. I dont’t do this for the money; I’m a University Prof. who owns some businesses and loves to fly.
I may be wrong but I was under the impression that to do ICC and BFR checks the CFI does not necessarily have to be current in type of airplane, only have his/her CFI stuff current. I heard that he or she could even do this without a current medical as long as the “check-ee” is current and is functioning as pilot-in-command.
I thought this was strange when I heard it but it came from a knowledgeable source. Now may be a good time to clarify. Any opinions?
