23. Experience. Applicant may be a commercial or private pilot, but in the latter case shall meet the experience requirements for a commercial pilot. In addition, he shall have logged at least 40 hours of instrument flight under actual or simulated instrument flight conditions, not less than 20 hours of which shall have been in actual flight.

24. Aeronautical Skill. Applicant shall demonstrate his ability to perform competently the following maneuvers solely by reference to instruments:

(a) Straight and level flight.

(b) Moderately banked 180-degree and 360-degree turns in both directions.

(c) Powered flight at minimum safe speed, minimum glides, maximum climbs and approaches to stalled attitudes of flight.

(d) Climbing turns.

(e) Stalls, skids, slips, spirals, and banks in excess of 45 degrees, and recovery from unusual positions or attitudes of flight.

27. Experience. Applicant must meet the experience requirements for a commercial pilot.

28. Skill. Applicant shall pass a practical test demonstrating his ability to teach such fundamental flight maneuvers as are necessary and appropriate for instruction in the safe piloting of aircraft.

Section VIII. Privileges and Limitations 29. General. No person shall pilot an aircraft in solo flight without being possessed of a pilot certificate appropriate to the purpose of the flight.

30. Operation During Physical Deficiency. A certificated pilot shall not serve as pilot on any aircraft during the period of any known physical deficiency or increase in physical deficiency which would render him, during that period, unable to meet the physical requirements prescribed for the issuance of his currently effective medical certificate.

31. Privileges

(a) A student pilot may pilot an aircraft solo only under the supervision of a rated instructor and within the territorial limits of the country issuing his student pilot certificate. He shall not pilot aircraft carrying passengers.

(b) A private pilot may pilot, not for hire, any aircraft within the type and class for which he is rated.

(c) A commercial pilot may pilot for hire any aircraft within the type and class for which he is rated.

(d) No private or commercial pilot shall fly under instrument conditions without being possessed of a current instrument rating.

(e) No private or commercial pilot shall make a flight carrying passengers during the period from one hour after sunset to one hour before sunrise unless he has made and logged at least five take-offs and five landings to a full stop during such period within the preceding three calendar months.

CHAPTER II

2. Classes. Airline transport pilots shall be classed, according to the applicant's qualifications, as:

Airline Transport Pilot, Third Class;
Airline Transport Pilot, Second Class;
Airline Transport Pilot, First Class.

3. Ratings. Ratings shall be issued in connection with any airline transport pilot certificate prescribing the type, class, and horsepower of aircraft which the holder has demonstrated competence to pilot in accordance with Section V of Chapter I.

Sectron II. Minimum Requirements 4. Age. Applicant shall be at least: 18 years of age for the Third Class certificate; 21 years of age for the Second Class certificate; and 23 years of age for the First Class certificate.

5. Physical Requirements. An applicant for an airline transport pilot certificate of any class shall meet physical standards to be decided later.

6. Aeronautical Knowledge. Applicant for an airline transport pilot certificate of any class shall pass an examination on the following subjects:

(a) Such provisions of the rules and regulations governing civil aviation as are pertinent to the operation of air carrier aircraft;

(b) The fundamentals of air navigation, including the use of formulae, instruments, and other navigational aids, both in aircraft and on the ground, which are deemed necessary for the navigation of aircraft by instruments;

(c) The general system of weather collection and dissemination;

d) Weather map, weather forecast, and weather sequence abbreviations, symbols, and nomenclature;

(e) Elementary meteorology, including modern knowledge of the cyclone as associated with fronts;
