Last month I had to take some time out from flying as I lost my job, fortunately I have managed to find more work to fund my habit. So after a month of not flying I asked to go out dual and to practice PFL's and emergency procedures. All in all had a great flight and the PFL's were ok but realised the importance of keeping those autos up to scratch and so now I am planning on doing this at least monthly regardless of whether or not I fly in between.
Do any other PPL's practice dual auto's on a regular basis and if so what ratio of solo to dual? Interested in all comments.

I work offshore on the boats and do month on month off in the North Sea puke_r , so I have to do a short refresher with an instructor every time I come home.
Itís the clubs policy if you havenít flown for more that 28 days then you need to go up with an instructor. And yeah we always do a couple of autos before landing back.

I practice solo, probably once a month and dual once a year with my anual check ride. However the insurance company will not cover any hull damage whilst practicing auto's on a piston unless you are accompanied by an instructor. Shocked
So I don't bother insuring my piston hull any more.
