Flight Reviews
$375.00
Every two years, pilots need to have a flight review in order to stay current with their license. This is an opportunity to spend time with an instructor learning about changes in the rules and brushing up on basic flight skills. The FAA minimum requirement is 1 hour of ground training and 1 hour of flight training. Sometimes it takes a little longer, but that will probably only be on some of the ground training. In any case, $375 covers all of the costs of the flight review.
