Flight Review per FAR 61.56(a) and (c).

GROUND:

  • Introduction

  • Review of FARs

  • Stalls.

    • Low energy

    • Entry and recognition (Incipient and full)

    • Spins

      • PARE Spin Recovery

      • Spin dynamics: Effect of power, aileron, rudder and elevator in a spin.

    • Slips and Skids

      • Pilot induced yaw flight conditions  

    • Overbanked tendencies  

    • Control Failures

      • Set it - Check it - Turn it (Speed - Spot - Set-up)

      • Gliding flight

      • Effect of Airspeed, Flaps, Wind, CG and Weight on the glide.

      • Full / Partial Power Failure

      • Aileron, Rudder, Elevator and Trim control failures

      • Airspeed indicator failure

      • Emergency Decision Making

        • Emergency descent

        • Off Airport Landings 

    • Crash Survivability

      • Control impact speed and impact angle to survive

      • Distraction > Faulty Perception > Inappropriate Control Input 

    FLIGHT:

    • All Categories and Classes of Aircraft

      • Pilot certificates and other FAR Part 61 requirements

      • Aircraft performance and limitations

      • Aircraft loading, weight and balance

      • Aircraft systems and operating procedures

      • Abnormal and emergency procedures

      • Flight planning and obtaining weather information

      • Aircraft documents and records

      • Avoidance of hazardous weather

      • Air traffic control and airspace

      • Preflight inspection               

      • Use of checklist

      • Radio communication and navigation (if aircraft equipped)

      • Collision avoidance, traffic pattern operations, ground operations

      • Navigation by pilotage  

    Airplane, Single Engine Land (ASEL)

      • aTakeoffs and Landings (normal, crosswind, short and soft-field)

      • Go-arounds

      • Maneuvering during slow flight

      • Stalls (recognition, entry, recovery)

      • Spins (recognition, entry, recovery)

      • Overbanked tendencies

      • Constant altitude turns

      • Slips and Skids

      • Control Failures

      • Simulated forced landings and other emergency operations

      • Flight by reference to instruments

    Airplane, Single Engine Sea (ASES)

      • Same as ASEL (except takeoffs and landings) plus:

      • Water characteristics

      • Taxiing

      • Sailing

      • Takeoffs (porpoising and skipping)

      • Glassy and rough water landing

      • Anchoring, mooring, docking and beaching
