Amendments to the FAR making the ACS regulatory go into effect May 31, 2024 along with new ACS. I have not reviewed all the changes. Most are expected to be minor, but the new Instrument ACS has the big one many have discussed - the removal of the requirement to use at least one land-based nonprecision approach for the checkrides and IPC. This will be important in those areas where a realistic VOR or LOC approach is difficult to find and especially for those who chose to remove VLOC receivers from their aircraft.. See Appendix 3 of the new Instrument ACS for details.

Looks like there is finally an ACS for Flight Instructor - Airplane, though I see several other documents apparently are still "PTS" rather than "ACS".

I don’t know if there were any changes to others as significant as the instrument and ATP. Also, check for ACS vs PTS with May 31, 2024 effective dates.
