I fly civilian (Part 91) and military and I know the FARs specifically allow me to use a military checkride to "credit" the FAA BFR requirement. Does anyone see a reason why you can't do the same for landing currency or instrument currency? For example, if I fly 6 approaches, holding procedues and course intercepts/tracking in a military airplane within the last 6 months, am I legal to fly IFR in a civilian airplane? I think so but just looking for a sanity check.

Thanks

Yes, the FAR's don't differentiate between mil and civ.

I'm in the same boat, flying mil and civ for about 8 years. Using a Form 8 for a BFR is great and instrument currency doesn't differientiate between single and multi engine for the IFR requirements. I just wish that you could use multi engine landings and night landings for single engine currency. Also, the mil to civ instructor FAR changes are still moving slowly forward.
