The FAA is here to help - seriously

Very recently I was asked to do the flight portion of the Wings program and had some questions. On the Advisory Circular it says the pilot will perform three hours of flight instruction.
My question was with the 3rd hour, it says to perform instrument training but I am not instrument current. When I called the San Jose FSDO they were very quick to connect me to the person who could answer my question.

I learned that they are a resource to use, a cheap and easy resource. OH! And I found a portion of the FAA website that is great for pilots with free online courses.
