IFR Refresher Course
There is a cliche that says you will never be more proficient than on the day you passed your check ride, because you will never put as much effort into sharpening your IFR skills.
Don't be the pilot who finds the equipment, the weather, or the system throwing him a nasty curve and wishes he had spent some time keeping those skills sharp.
Are you "conditionally proficient"? What if one or more of the conditions change? Could you handle any level of IMC if your autopilot or moving map became inoperative? What if your destination goes below your personal minimums and the ILS is out at your alternate. How comfortable are you with holding patterns? Are you finding yourself canceling trips for conditions you used to find acceptable?
As an instrument pilot you have the privilege of IFR flight, and the responsibility for your currency and proficiency. The FAA only requires the bare minimum for legal currency. Common sense and safety demand your proficiency.
