A Flight Review (FR) is a biennial check of a pilot’s skill and depth of knowledge and is required under Australia’s civil aviation regulations.
The FR 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.
If you’re feeling a bit “rusty”, then it’s a good idea to undertake refresher training before your FR comes up. The review itself includes a questionnaire, a pre-flight briefing and a flight. You can use the FR as an opportunity to upgrade your qualifications and gain an endorsement on another aircraft type.
A flight review is valid for 24 months, until the end of the same month in which it was completed.
Flight reviews in Perth
The Royal Aero Club of WA offers members a free Quarterly Flight Review Seminar, presented by one of our Grade 1 Instructors.
This seminar is for members who book the flight component of their FR with the Club. If you’re not a member, you are still welcome to attend this seminar for a $100 fee.
The flight review questionnaire will be completed during the seminar and is valid for three months. The Members’ Lounge Bar will open after the seminar to catch up with old mates and make new friends in aviation.
