Night Currency for CFI

If, in the previous 90 days, a person has not completed three takeoffs and landings in the period from one hour after sunset to one hour before sunrise then they may not carry passengers. If you haven’t been up in the dark for a while, you may want to take a CFI with you. The question often arises, does the CFI have to be night current. The answer is no. And the reason is that when the CFI in instructing, they are not a passenger. Likewise, the pilot is not a passenger either. An opinion from the Chief Counsel’s Office makes that clear.
