Flight Review – BFR
Train to enhance your proficiency; not just to meet minimum standards.
FAA Regulations require that pilots take a flight review at least once every 24 calendar months. Most pilots know that the flight review must include the following:
- 1 hour flight training
- 1 hour ground training
- Review of Part 91 general operating and flight rules
- Review of maneuvers and procedures to demonstrate safety
Pilots also know that complexity of the aviation operating environment also increases. Flight Review is not a test or check ride, but an instructional service designed to assess and enhance a pilot’s knowledge and skills.
Effective Flight Reviews
The FAA has published specific guidance to ensure that flight instructors are able to conduct effective flight reviews. The guidance can be found here.
AOPA has published a “Pilot’s Guide to the Flight Review,” available here. This document contains answers to many questions that pilots frequently have about flight reviews.
Our Flight Reviews
Flight reviews are for the pilot’s benefit. Paying emphasis on factors such as the type of Equipment Flown, nature of Flight Operations, and Amount and Recency of Flight Experience, we will organize a syllabus to maximize the time you spend
For a proficient pilot, we recommend at least a 4-hour session. This will allow time for us to adequately cover ground and flight material, while also providing the opportunity to debrief thoroughly after the training.
If you have been out of the cockpit for a while, we will develop a plan to help you regain proficiency either in your airplane or using an Aviation Training Device.
