Event Date: 
Wednesday, December 20, 2017 - 7:00pm

In this safety seminar we will discuss the flight review, aka BFR, regulations including:

  • when flight reviews are required

  • what is required for compliance

  • what are options for compliance

  • how compliance is documented

  • who can perform a flight review

This will be augmented with actual experience from pilots that have completed their flight review along with input from several CFIs on how they conduct a flight review. The FAA provides some guidance on flight reviews which we will cover including the advisory circular and other published information. Want to know how to use the WINGS program to complete a flight review? Yep, we will cover that too! If you are in need of a flight review soon you will want to attend to learn what to expect and how to prepare for your flight review.
