Answers the most commonly asked questions about the flight review, provides a question-and-answer format to prepare for it, checklists for the flight, and references for further study.
All pilots, whether they fly for pleasure, business, or as a career, must take a flight review every 2 years (sometimes called a Biennial Flight Review or BFR). This book provides complete preparation for pilots taking the flight review, as well as for the flight instructors conducting the review. The FAA offers options for completing the BFR, and the book covers all of these in detail. International pilots can also use this book to help familiarize themselves with flight operations in the U.S.
The new sixth edition reflects these important updates:
- Rules and procedures for today’s operations and areas of emphasis such as ADM, risk management, scenario-based training, and the sport pilot and light-sport aircraft categories.
- A new appendix containing the FAA’s new “Conducting an Effective Flight Review” guidance document provides specific recommendations for the ground review, flight activities, post-flight debriefing, and pilot improvement plans.
The important features of this book:
- Works for both the applicant and the flight instructor (includes separate sections for each).
- Questions-and-answer format for the ground review portion of the flight review is an excellent refresher for the information all pilots need to know.
- Includes sample written quiz, which can be used to meet the ground-training requirement.
- For instructors, helpful recommendations on how to conduct the flight review, with a synopsis of practical test standards for the maneuvers at both the Private and Commercial level.
- Appendix has reprints of the flight review regulation (14 CFR 61.56) and other helpful and important FAA resources, including a comprehensive checklist that both applicants and instructors can use to ensure they meet requirements and gain something from this legal requirement to continue flying as pilot-in-command.
The flight review must include 1 hour of ground instruction as well as 1 hour of flight instruction. The information provided in this book may be used by instructors to fulfill these requirements.
