Welcome aviators and avgeeks. We have a special show for you today focusing on a very important topic you will discuss during your entire flying life. The topic is an idea from our co host Russ Roslewski.
Russ asked why don’t we talk about about flight reviews? Specifically, as the pilot, how to make sure you're getting something out of it, it's effective, worthwhile and
educational instead of just maneuver practice? Good Questions Russ!
As a CFI, I love it when prospective flight reviews come to me with
specific areas they know they need to work on. But, unfortunately, few ever actually do. Many probably don't even realize that they can have input to the Flight Review – they just show up, get quizzed for an hour, fly steep turns, stalls and a few landings and get signed off for another 2 years. Instead, they should help make it tailored to their needs.
