New Instrument Rating practical test standards (PTS)

Beginning January 1 2010, the FAA's new instrument rating practical test standards (PTS) for airplane, helicopter, and powered-lift aircraft became active. 

The new version includes minor changes to allow for LPV approaches to be used as precision approaches on checkrides, adds a special emphasis area relating to icing conditions and anti- or de-icing equipment, adds guidance language to conform with current FAA Orders 8900.1 and 8900.2, and allows some minor reshuffling of task orders in the areas of operation requirements
