I have a flight review today. They are required every two years, but I have not had one in 5 or 6 years. What gives? You can meet the requirement for a flight review by taking a check ride for a new pilot rating or license. So, I satisfied the flight review requirement 4 years ago by getting an instrument rating and 2 years ago by getting a commercial license.
I did not get around to adding a new rating within two years this time, hence the need for a flight review. I am looking forward to the actual flying, but the temperature this afternoon will be around 102 and there is no air conditioning in the airplane. Dealing with the temperatures – mainly the comfort factor but also its effect on aircraft performance will be the most difficult part of the day I suspect.
