SUMMARY: The FAA is proposing several
changes to our pilot, flight instructor,
and pilot school certification rules. The
proposals include requiring pilot-incommand
(PIC) proficiency checks for
pilots who act as PIC of single piloted,
turbojet-powered airplanes; allowing
pilot applicants to apply for a private
pilot certificate and an instrument rating
concurrently; and making allowance in
the rule to provide for the issuance of
standard U.S. pilot certificates on the
basis of an international licensing
agreement between the FAA and a
foreign civil aviation authority. The
FAA has recently entered into such an
agreement with the civil aviation
authority of Canada. The FAA is also
proposing to allow pilot schools to use
Internet-based training programs
without requiring schools to have a
physical ground training facility. The
FAA is proposing to allow pilot schools
and provisional pilot schools to apply
for a combined private pilot certification
and instrument rating course. The FAA
is also proposing to revise the definition
of ‘‘complex airplane.’’ Because of
changing technology in aviation, the
results of successful research, and an
international agreement, the FAA has
determined these proposed changes to
the pilot, flight instructor, and pilot
school certification rules are necessary
to ensure pilots are adequately trained
and qualified to operate safely in the
National Airspace System. The FAA has
determined these proposals are needed
to respond to changes in the aviation
industry and to further reduce
unnecessary regulatory burdens.

What they are also proposing is eliminating the 10 hrs of complex time and a complex endorsement in exchange for 10 more hours of instrument training for a Commercial.  provided you get a commercial without an instrument.
