1) Can a CFI (not CFII) provide the simulated instrument training required in 61.129 for the commercial certificate? I found the Grayson LI which states an instructor "...must have an instrument-airplane rating on his or her flight instructor certificate." I assume that means they would be a CFII? 2) Can the commercial simulated instrument training hours be satisfied by using an AATD? Long story short, I didn't plan to get my commercial and didn't notate hours during my instrument training properly. I'm all setup with just a CFI, but we are trying to figure out if they can provide the instrument training portion of the commercial. If not, I may do an IPC and then sit in the sim for the rest of the time (I only have 1.2 hours of AATD time, so I'm not worried about pushing up against the 50 hours max of sim time that can be substituted).
