I am at the end of my training as a student pilot with an overkill amount of flying hours, but I had a couple of complications in the way.
I flew with my old instructor (instructor A) for about 3 years, and he signed me off for everything but the check ride.
When it was time for me to go to college, I had to find a new instructor (instructor B) and we trained for about a year until he decided it was about time I go for the check ride. Sadly our plane had engine issues and I had to cancel my check ride.
So I had to go back home to my old instructor (instructor A) who I haven't flown with for about a year. The last time we flew, he also said I was ready for the check ride, but that was about one year ago.
My question is this: Can my hometown instructor (instructor A) sign my off for my check ride even though I haven't flown with him in a year?
I stayed current with my flying and I even flew the same type of plane (One was a Cessna 172n and the other was a Cessna 172m).
