FAA has issued a technical correction returning 61.57(d), which explains when a complete instrument proficiency check (IPC) is required for individuals serving as pilot in command (PIC), to its original form. A PIC is instrument-current for six months following the completion of recent experience requirements. After that, the pilot has an additional six months to regain currency without a full IPC. If currency is not established in this period, a full IPC is required.
