Faa minimums for IFR eligibility-  50 hours xc pic, 10 in airplanes

                                                     40 hours actual or simulated ifr time, 15 with cfii

                                                               -250 mile nm xc, three different airports, 

                                                                  3 different approaches along atc along 

                                                                  airways or atc direction with filed flight


                                                     3 hours IFR training in previous 2 calend                                                                      months.

                                                     20 hours max sim time towards eligibility.
