Guide to Biennial Flight Review

Guide to the Flight Review 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 new seventh edition includes current FAA guidance on flight reviews including AC 61-98B and AC 61-91J Wings Pilot Proficiency Program. Other additions include new 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 Seventh Edition has been updated to reflect current rules and procedures and includes:

  • Information for Private Pilots wanting to fly Light Sport Aircraft without a medical certificate (as a Sport Pilot).
  • Information pertinent to today’s operational environment and areas of emphasis such as ADM, risk management, scenario-based training, and the sport pilot and light-sport aircraft categories.
  • 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) new 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.

Well written, however...
by Thomas from Ramsey NJ USA 

Pros: A quick and easy study guide.
Cons: See above.

Liked the format, returned to review sections with ease.
by Russell from Woodland Park CO USA 

Pros: Very good overview of topics.
Cons: Could have used more info on controled airspace
Review: This CD presented information for a Flight Review in a straight forward manner. Easy to understand presentations, if I missed or misunderstood a topic it was easy to slide the bar back to hear it again.

Excellent Review and Study Material
by A Customer from Wildomar CA USA 

Pros: FAR regulation sections are added to relevant information, so you can look it up the actual regulation in the FAR/AIM yourself if you want. Sections of the book were very orderly and in a logical order.
Cons: It's just a book.
Review: This book covered all the bases for my private pilot flight review, and was recommended by a flight instructor. When the time came I was thoroughly prepared for the review - there's nothing quite like impressing your reviewing flight instructor!

It was arranged very well, and kept in a sensible order as I read through. It's definitely worth having even just to brush up on the basics outside of a flight review, and a handy size allows you to just flip it open to read/review on a whim.

On Thursday, February 21, 2008 a customer asked:
Q:
Is the date of the BFR figured from the end of the month the last test was taken or from the actual date of the exam.
A:

According to the FAR 61.56, "no person may act as pilot in command of an aircraft unless, since the beginning of the 24th calendar month before the month in which that pilot acts as pilot in command, that person has Accomplished a flight review given in an aircraft for which that pilot is rated by an authorized instructor and..."

Basically, if your last flight review was Feb. 6, 2006 you would have until February 29, 2008 to complete your flight review (the end of the calendar month).
