“As part of the Flight Review process I have initiated a programme that will hopefully make your Flight Review (FR) more streamlined and a little less daunting.” David Royans, RACWA Head of Operations
I have enlisted the aid of one of our most popular Instructors, Mike Thomas, to prepare and deliver a seminar for the conduct of FRs.
For pilots conducting their FR at RACWA, attendance at the seminar will meet the requirement for the FR questionnaire, and the questionnaire will remain valid for 3 months (your flight component can be done up to 3 months after the seminar).
Mike will present the seminar (the ground component), which should take approximately 1.5 to 2.0 hours at the Aero Club on a Saturday or Sunday on a regular basis. The intention is to run seminars quarterly. You will be able to attend the seminar, which will “tick off” the questionnaire, then conduct the flight component within the next 3 months. The first FR Seminar will be conducted on Saturday 18 August, commencing at 1400.
This is the first of a series of initiatives to assist members. If enough interest is generated Mike will be conducting seminars and flights for the following:
- CTA/V65 scenic, we will give you confidence to take interstate/international visitors in to the Perth control zone whenever you have the opportunity
- NVFR FRs – The Perth control zone is even more spectacular at night!
- Leeuwin Estate
- Wave Rock
GFPT Conversions: There are still some pilots holding GFPT’s – we can assist getting you back in the air at minimal cost.
Any seminars conducted at RACWA for these, or similar events in the future are free of charge for financial members of RACWA, or will attract a cost of $100.00 per person for non Members.
