The Aeroplane Flight Review (AFR, previously known as BFR) is a biennial review of a pilot’s skill and depth of knowledge as required by the Civil Aviation Regulations.
The AFR is not a flight test. Its purpose is to confirm that pilots have maintained a standard which allows them to safely exercise the privileges of their licence.
Prior to your AFR it may be a good idea to undertake refresher training if you are feeling a bit ‘rusty.’ The Review itself consists of a questionnaire, a pre flight briefing and the flight.
You are able to use the AFR as an opportunity to upgrade your qualifications and gain an endorsement on another aircraft type.
The Royal Aero Club offers Members a FREE Quarterly Flight Review Seminar, presented by one of our Grade 1 Instructors, to Members who book the flight component of the Flight Review with the Club, or if you are a Non-Member, you can attend this Seminar for $100.
The Flight Review Questionaire component will be completed during the course of this seminar and is valid for 3 months. The Members Lounge Bar will open after the Seminar to catch up with mates! Speak to one of our friendly instructors when you are approaching your AFR.
NB. A flight review is valid to the end of the month in which it was completed, 24 months later.
