Biennial Flight Review

Biennial Flight Review (BFR)

What is a Biennial Flight Review (BFR) and when do I need one?
A BFR is a routine review done by a qualified Certified Flight Instructor that is used to review the knowlege and flight skills of pilots to be sure that they still meet FAA standards to act and Pilot in Command (PIC) of an aircraft. A BFR is required every two years, or two years from the most recent practical test. For example, if you get your Private Pilot License in May of 2007, then you get your Instrument Rating in May of 2008 you will be required to get a BFR in May of 2010. If you were to get any other ratings that require a practical test (a test with an FAA Examiner), the BFR would be required 2 years after that practical test.

How long does the BFR take?
FAR 61.56 states that a minimum of 1 hour ground review and 1 hour of flight review be received in the areas necessary to demonstrate safe flight. These are only minumums. Our ground portions is usually 1 hour and our flight portion can range from 1-1.5 hours depending on the performance of the pilot.

What does the BFR cover?
Since we will be covering "the areas necessary to demonstrate safe flight" you can expect the following:

  • Ground Portion
    • Airspace
    • Recency of Flight Requirements for Carrying Passengers
    • VFR Minimums
    • Review of Local Area Flight Conditions
    • Weather
    • Weight and Balance
    • Flight Planning
    • Review of Airport Environment
  • Flight Portion
    • Stalls
    • Slow Flight
    • Steep Turns
    • Unusual Attitudes
    • Normal/X-Wind Takeoff and Landing
    • Emergency Procedures
    • Instrument Reference Competency
    • Navigation

How much will my BFR cost?
A BFR can be done in our aircraft or in your own aircraft.
