DOT/FAA RIN: 2120-AK28 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Aviation Training Devices; Pilot Certification, Training, Pilot Schools; and Other Provisions (RRR) 

This rulemaking would consider relieving burdens on pilots seeking to obtain aeronautical experience for certification and recency by promoting increased use of aviation training devices. The rulemaking would also address changing technologies by permitting an alternative that would permit pilots to train in technically advanced airplanes in place of older complex single engine airplanes. Additionally, the rulemaking would broaden the opportunities for military instructors to obtain civilian ratings based on military experience, expand opportunities for logging pilot time, and remove a burden on sport pilot instructors by permitting them to serve as safety pilots. Finally, this rulemaking corrects several unintended burdens resulting from a 2009 final rule and codifies several exemptions.
