For holders of pilot certificates issued by the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) a flight review is required at least every 24 calendar months (previously the FAA referred to this as a biennial flight review, usually abbreviated BFR). The flight review consists of at least 1 hour of ground instruction and 1 hour in-flight with a qualified flight instructor, FAR 61.56 specifies that the review must include:
(1) A review of the current general operating and flight rules of FAR 91; and
(2) A review of those maneuvers and procedures that, at the discretion of the person giving the review, are necessary for the pilot to demonstrate the safe exercise of the privileges of the pilot certificate.
Holders of a FAA pilot certificate that contains an instrument rating who do not meet the instrument flying currency requirements in FAR 61.57 are required to carry out an instrument proficency check containing "a representative number of tasks required by the instrument rating practical test" before thay can act as pilot in command under IFR.
Both FAA flight reviews and instrument proficiency checks can be carried out at Cubair using your own aircraft or one of ours.
