I recently had a discussion with another recently graduated Private who was told by his CFI that for night currency your night landings had to be taxi backs. I've always considered Stop & Go's to qualify based on my reading of 61.57(b)1 and consultation of my CFI during my training. Since this is essentially the blind leading the blind I wanted to get some clarification from the braintrust. Assuming that Stop & Go can be performed safely based on conditions and RWY length does it qualify for night re-currency? If there are any published opinions from FAA let me know. I haven't found any.
