A recreational pilot can fly primary or standard category aircraft of no more than two seats used. The limitations are numerous so almost nobody ever got a rec certificate. A few hundred, I think . Most go Sport Pilot or private pilot.My limited understanding was you could fly primary Catagory with a rec pilot cert. But, I am often confused, so could be totally out to lunch
These so called regulatory "relief gifts" were created about every decade of my 50 years in aviation. Nothing has helped the decline because it is still vastly over regulated, in my opinion.
