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.

  • By A Customer from Boise ID USA on Thursday, November 26, 2015
  • Pros:
  • Review: This book is ideal for preparing for a biennial flight review. It is up to date, and incorporates many resources to take the mystery out of the flight review for both the pilot and the CFI. The format lends itself to self-testing, which helps the pilot remember / re-learn the material. Lots of good resources for the CFI as well.

Good book, poorly constructed

  • By Todd from Rhome TX USA on Wednesday, June 24, 2015
  • Pros: content information up to date
  • Review: The content of this book met my expectations however the construction was poor. After the very first day of reading the pages were falling out.
    Would have been 5 stars if book did not fall apart.

Well organized.

  • By M ichael from Boone NC USA on Thursday, February 26, 2015
  • Pros: Concise and well-organized.
  • Review: After a long layoff from flying, this has been very helpful in making sure I'm up to speed. Concise and well-organized, it fits nicely in my flight bag and is an excellent reference. I did, however, find it useful to take it down to my local Staples and have the glued spine replaced with a plastic spiral binding.

2 QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Previously Asked Questions

  • Thursday, February 21, 2008

    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).
