Brief Description:

Every pilot does it: a Flight Review (or equivalent) at least every two yearsFor many pilots a Flight Review is the only opportunity for a safety and skill assessment, and the CFI plays a key role to reduce the likelihood they will become a statistic! How do you change the concept from “a test that must be passed” to a service to your clients to help make them safer pilots? Also, ALL pilots are welcome to help them understand how to benefit from a good Flight Review (Approx. a 2 hr. event)

We will look at the concept of a Risk Based Flight Review, and discuss the various tools CFI's and Flight Review applicants can bring to help them improve their level of safety by improving aircraft handling skills, aircraft systems knowledge, aeronautical decision making and assessing scenarios in training. Please bring your ideas and best practices to share in our discussion. 

Participation in this meeting does not result in credit for CFI renewal.  However it does meet the requirements to qualify for Wings levels of Advanced (1 credit) and Master (1 credit).

Together as a Team, the Instructors and Designated Pilot Examiners can combine their extensive knowledge and experience with sound judgment to create and provide the most comprehensive and effective pilot training experience, followed by a reliable and effective evaluation.
