"Many people" included the FAA. The official FAA opinion (before 1997)
that a high performance signoff meant you were good to fly either a
or 200 HP aircraft. They did not differentiate (despite whatever the
writer of the reg intended).
I never saw that opinion. Was it actually published? Can you provide a
citation? The wording of the regulation, because of the use of the words
"as appropriate", seemed to pretty clearly mean one endorsement did not
qualify for the other. Logically, it makes no sense that it would.
Ron is correct. The regulations were changed in 1997. We now have two
separate endorsements (the "high-performance" endorsement was added). Under
the old regs, there was only one.
They say that nothing's certain except death and taxes. The thing is,
death doesn't get worse every time Congress goes into session.
