Recurrent Training
The recurrent check cycle is designed to allow a pilot to follow an alternating training sequence.  Following initial training, a 90 Day Refresher course is recommended with subsequent adherence to a six month recurrent check schedule.

If followed, this sequence could permit a flight review and an IPC on an annual basis while accomplishing recurrent Cirrus training.  It is not necessary to complete a flight review or an IPC with this training model.  Non Instrument-rated pilots whould utilize the instrument procedures portion to maintain basic attitude instrument flying skills.
