I am getting close to my checkride, and want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row. I read that per the 2010 Gatlin FAA interpretation, you have to be a CFII. I have 3.2 hours of flight simulator time given by an IGI in 2003, which would be prior to Gatlin, but after the 1980 Ruth interpretation. Ruth states an IGI can give flight simulator instruction. Would that time still be good, or do I need to get up in the air and do some simulated instrument with my CFII before going for the checkride? I have 0.8 hrs of sim time from a CFII and 0.7 hood time with a CFII. Comments, concerns?
