Vintage & Experimental Aircraft Program
This program standardizes pilot certification in the following U.S. aircraft:
Vintage & Experimental Aircraft Pilot-in-Command (PIC)
Some experimental aircraft operating limitations require that before acting as PIC, a pilot must get an aircraft authorization on his or her pilot certificate. The process is similar to seeking a type rating in a standard category aircraft.
FAA is revising Advisory Circular (AC) 91-68 to reflect the latest procedure. Until then, pilots may refer to the Flight Standards Information Management System (FSIMS), Volume 5, Chapter 9, Section 2, Letter of Authorization (LOA) for PIC of Surplus Military Turbine- or Piston-Powered Airplanes.
