What would it take to become current? I was a fairly proficient pilot and accumulated around 5000 hours. In 1984, I changed careers and haven't flown since. I was licensed for commercial and instrument operation of airplanes (single and multi-engine). I had an instrument rating and AGI, IGI, CFIA, CFII and I even got an ATP certificate (although no type ratings and at 74 years old, I don't think that would be usable). I also have an airframe and power plant mechanic certificate.
For 16 years I lived and breathed aviation. I couldn't make a reasonable living at it so I went back to school and switched to computer science. I am now retired, still in reasonably good health and I am considering getting back into aviation as a hobby.
I know the rules have changed. Airspace categories are different and airplanes have become incredibly more expensive (holy cow). And the avionics make the stuff I was using look like they should be in a museum.
My question is, "What would it take to make me legal to fly?" Could I ever be a safe pilot again?
