With excerpts from Michael Hayes’ popular Oral Exam Guide Series, this Guide to the Flight Review is an excellent question-and-answer study tool for applicants and instructors alike. Use when you’re gearing up for a Flight Review, as well as for a general refresher.

This eighth edition reflects the latest procedural and regulatory changes mandated by the FAA including AC 61-98B and AC 61-91J Wings Pilot Proficiency Program. Other additions include new information on special flight permits, ADs, EFBs, airport markings and signs, runway incursion avoidance, risk management, and an updated checklist to reflect the current PTS.

This guide informs both pilots and flight instructors about the exam, and lists questions with succinct answers that will help them pass their flight review. It is also useful for FAA-designated examiners for keeping track of how to conduct a flight review, and the steps and requirements laid out by the FAA.

The flight review must include 1 hour of ground instruction as well as 1 hour of flight instruction. The information provided in this book may be used by instructors to fulfill these requirements.
