What to expect on your flight review?
Your instructor must check the competency requirements particular to the flight review you are undertaking as outlined in the Part 61 Manual of Standards. They will work with you to design a short ground component and flying sortie to achieve this.
Our training philosophy focuses on a pilot developing and maintaining a high standard of personal flying proficiency in core safety skills like:
-Stick and Rudder Co-ordination
-Stalls and Spins
-Handling Emergency Situations
As these things are not often practised during a pilot's regular flying, we tend to focus on these things a little more during a flight review.
Equally important is the development and maintenance of airmanship and decision making skills, good judgement and command sense and these things are discussed and monitored in your flight review as well.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q. Do I have to do a nav?
A. No, the nav component is optional. If you do a lot of regular cross-country flying without any problems, you probably don't need to do a nav. However, if you'd like to freshen up your nav skills or do some controlled airspace work - we can do one no worries.
Q. Can I use my own aircraft?
A. Yes, provided it is insured and fitted with an intercom and dual controls. This is a service we happily extend to aircraft owners.
Q. Can I use a mates's aircraft?
A. If it's to save money, we'd rather you didn't. We have a fleet of excellent aircraft available for you to use. Our flying rates reflect the cost of maintaining these aircraft and operating
Q. Can I do a day and night flight review in the same flight.
A. Technically you could do this by starting the flight by day and completing it at night, but 2 separate flights may be a better option.
