All pilots, whether they fly for pleasure, business, or as a career, must take a flight review (sometimes called a Biennial Flight Review or BFR), every 2 years. Filght Review Checkride delivers valuable information in a question and answer format, providing an excellent study and preparation tool for students, pilots, and instructors alike. 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. 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.

Based on the popular Guide to the Flight Review: For Pilots & Instructors book by Jackie Spanitz, this app delivers valuable information necessary in satisfying the flight reveiw requirements set forth in FAA regulation 14 CFR 61.56. It includes current FAA guidance on flight reviews including AC 61-98B Currency Requirements and Guidance for the Flight Review and Instrument Proficiency Check, Conducting an Effective Flight Review, AC 61-91J Wings Pilot Proficiency Program, and a Flight Review Checklist. Other additions include information on special flight permits, ADs, EFBs, airport markings and signs, runway incursion avoidance, risk management, and a checklist to reflect the Practical Test Standards.

The FAA offers different options for completing the Flight Review, and this app covers all of these in detail. International pilots can also use this app to help familiarize themselves with flight operations in the United States. This app is an effective tool for both the applicant and the flight instructor and has separate sections for each.

For a complete list of features, visit the Features tab.

NOTE: While a Flight Review is not a Checkride, this app has been included in our Checkride App series because it addresses the flight review ground school requirement, and is well suited to the kind of similar questioning experienced during the oral exam portion of a checkride.
