quired modifications, and apply for addi-
tional FSTD qualification under § 60.16 to

ing for an FAA operating certificate under 
Part 119, Part 141, or Part 142, or holding or 
applying for an FAA-approved training pro-
gram under Part 63, Appendix C, for flight 
engineers, and 

b. Evaluated and issued a Statement of 

Qualification (SOQ) for a specific FSTD 

2. The evaluation criteria contained in this 

Directive is intended to address specific 
training tasks that require additional eval-
uation to ensure adequate FSTD fidelity. 

3. The requirements described in this Di-

rective define additional qualification cri-
teria for specific training tasks that are ap-
plicable only to those FSTDs that will be 
utilized to obtain training, testing, or check-
ing credit in an FAA approved flight training 
program. In order to obtain additional quali-
fication for the tasks described in this Direc-
tive, FSTD sponsors must request additional 
qualification in accordance with § 60.16 and 
the requirements of this Directive. FSTDs 
that are found to meet the requirements of 
this Directive will have their Statement of 
Qualification (SOQ) amended to reflect the 
additional training tasks that the FSTD has 
been qualified to conduct. The additional 
qualification requirements as defined in this 
Directive are divided into the following 
training tasks: 

a. Section I—Additional Qualification Re-

quirements for Full Stall Training Tasks 

b. Section II—Additional Qualification Re-

quirements for Upset Prevention and Re-
covery Training Tasks 

c. Section III—Additional Qualification Re-

quirements for Engine and Airframe Icing 
Training Tasks 

d. Section IV—Additional Qualification Re-

quirements for Takeoff and Landing in 
Gusting Crosswinds

Training Tasks 

4. A copy of this Directive (along with all 

required Statements of Compliance and ob-
jective test results) must be filed in the 
MQTG in the designated FSTD Directive 
Section, and its inclusion must be annotated 
on the Index of Effective FSTD Directives 
chart. See Attachment 4, Appendix A for a
