I had a buddy ask a question about IFR currency, specifically intercepting and tracking a course through use of navigation systems. My application of Google Fu isn't finding this answer. So I turn to the PoA Hive Mind. The regs sayeth..... 61.57 Recent flight experience: Pilot in command. c) Instrument experience. Except as provided in paragraph (e) of this section, no person may act as pilot in command under IFR or in weather conditions less than the minimums prescribed for VFR, unless within the preceding 6 calendar months, that person has: For the purpose of obtaining instrument experience in an aircraft (other than a glider), performed and logged under actual or simulated instrument conditions, either in flight in the appropriate category of aircraft for the instrument privileges sought or in a flight simulator or flight training device that is representative of the aircraft category for the instrument privileges sought -- At least six instrument approaches; Holding procedures; and Intercepting and tracking courses through the use of navigation systems. How long or far must I track that "beam" for the activity to satisfy the regs? Does intercepting and tracking a localizer count?
