I was just after some clarification about how to regain approach currency after 90 days has elapsed for a specific approach. Say I haven’t flown 3D or CDI in the last 90 days, am I required to sit with an instructor either in flight or in a sim to regain currency.

I’ve been having a look at CASR61.870 and I can’t really seem to find anything that says I’d need to receive instruction on it again.

The operation must be at least one hour in length and include at least one instrument approach.
