Overview

For Instructors and Applicants

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). Guide to the Flight Review delivers valuable information in a question and answer format, providing an excellent study and preparation tool for students, pilots, and instructors alike. Flight instructors and FAA authorized flight review administrators will find this guide to be extremely helpful in developing a well-rounded flight review tailored to the applicants' needs. Applicants will learn what to expect in their upcoming flight review, refresh their knowledge, and renew their confidence, all of which will ensure safe practices while in flight.

This Eighth edition includes current FAA guidance on flight reviews including AC 61-98B and AC 61-91J Wings Pilot Proficiency Program. Other additions include information on special flight permits, ADs, EFBs, airport markings and signs, runway incursion avoidance, risk management, and an updated checklist to reflect the current PTS.

The FAA offers different options for completing the Flight Review, and this book covers all of these in detail. International pilots can also use this book to help familiarize themselves with flight operations in the United States.

This book is an effective tool for both the applicant and the flight instructor and has separate sections for each. The Eighth Edition has been updated to reflect current rules and procedures and includes:
  • Information for Pilots wanting to fly without a medical certificate using Basic Med.
  • Information pertinent to today’s operational environment and areas of emphasis such as human factors, risk management, FAA certification standards, loss-of-control, and upset recovery, ADS-B, Remote pilots and drones.
  • The FAA’s “Conducting an Effective Flight Review” guidance document provides specific recommendations for the ground review, flight activities, post-flight debriefing, and pilot improvement plans.
  • The FAA’s online flight review course is referenced throughout, encouraging both applicants and instructors to take advantage of this excellent (and free) resource.
  • 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.
  • 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 helps both applicants and instructors ensure they not only meet legal standards but gain useful insight in following through with the flight review requirement.
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.
