What is a flight review and do I need to have one?

A flight review is an opportunity to receive training that refreshes your flying skills and operational knowledge. Pilots undertake flight reviews to ensure they continue to be competent flying particular types of aircraft or exercising the privileges of an operational rating.

After gaining a qualification, it is normal for some skills to deteriorate over time. A flight review ensures your piloting skills remain or are brought back up to standard. Flight reviews are also used to meet the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requirement for countries to ensure pilots continue to be competent in exercising the privileges of their licences and ratings.

If you hold a pilot licence, rating, or endorsement, and are unsure whether you require a flight review to demonstrate certain aspects of your qualifications, then please contact us.
