You'll need the BFR. Basically, you need to be at the private skill level for everything the instructor asks you to do. Go up with an instructor before hand and see how much practice you'll need first.

You are never required to have a bi Annual according to the regs regardless of what flying you are doing or how long you've been in recess.

I don't know what regulation you are thinking of but to act as PIC of an aircraft, you have to have had a Bienniel flight review within the last 24 calander months.

Although you are correct mini, the feds now just call it a flight review. Pilots who have been flying for decades such as myself have always known the review as a bienniel. A lot of old times incorrectly use the term biannual ( meaning twice a year ) but I never correct them.

you're screwed. They've changed it all since then.
VOR is now spelled "veryhighfrequencyomnidirectionalrangefinder"
Something about government excess.
Good luck.

Whether or not its called Flight Review now or not, I always find it funny how many people, and flight schools use the term "Bi-Annual" as opposed to the correct term "Bi-Ennial".

I don't know about you guys, but I'd much rather take my flight review every two years as opposed to twice a year!

While I was leaving our home airport the other day, I noticed there was a big billboard on the side of the road that was for a flight school advertising "BiAnnual Flight Reviews." Come on guys your suppose to know whats going on, atleast get it right for the billboard! It's one thing for a student or private pilot to SAY it, but to actually WRITE it out and advertise it that way! :D

Well, for all the fuss about the correct word, nobody has gotten it correct yet.



Two "i"s, one "e", one "a", and NO hyphen

Some of us got it, those of us who are relaxed with a nice glass of vino...

I find it interesting that ASA released their new 2005 edition to the "Guide to Biennial Flight Review". Guess they are holding on to all the folks who used the take the Biennial.

In the discussion about the correct name and spelling of the flight review (sheesh! talk about being anal!), I don't thing this was asked:

Does your question mean that you =have= flown aircraft other than SEL? Like multis or gliders or helicopters? If so, you don't need the flight review by any name. The flight review may be done in any aircraft for which the pilot is rated.

Slightly misleading, Midlife. I think you mean to say, if you have *done a flight review* in any kind of aircraft, not if you have flown any...

Reference please? Since this word is not in my FAR's, it is not in my field of vision.

Anyway, that was to Tony C. only.

I know that your question is for TonyC only, but that's ok, I'm Tony's evil twin from a parallel dimension.....sooooo.

You don't have to refer to the FARs, all you gotta to do is pull out a dictionary. These are ordinary, everyday words.


Biennial: Once every 2 years.

Biannual: twice a year.

it's that simple.

Hey, wait, I thought I was the evil twin!


You know, I'm beginning to wonder if they sell those things (dictionaries) anymore.


Come to think if it, my kids use mine -- they don't have their own. What will they do when they leave the nest?


Oh, my. I'm off to the book store. :)
