Getting Back To Flying: Easier Than You Think
If you’re like more than 500,000 other pilots (that’s right, half a million), you’ve taken a little breather from flying. Maybe more than a little. Perhaps life threw you a curve. Maybe the pitter-patter of little feet, a growing business, or a medical setback had something to do with it. Whatever the case, things are different now. You’re back in the game and would like to start flying again. You’ve come to the right place.
No Checkride Required. You Can Do This.
You may have forgotten that pilot certificates never expire. Once a pilot, always a pilot. You never have to take another test or worry about another checkride. All you need is a Flight Review (formerly known as a Biennial Flight Review). That’s it. A little brush-up with your local CFI, enough flights to demonstrate competence again (minimum one hour), and – presto! – you’re back in the air. Seriously, that’s all it takes.
A Rusty Pilots Seminar Gets You Started
AOPA has put together a fun, interactive program that gives you all the information you need to get current again. Our dynamic presenters will bring you up to speed on hot-button issues like medical reforms, weather briefings, preflight planning, FARs, and airspace. You’ll leave the seminar with a logbook endorsement attesting that you’ve completed three hours of ground training toward your Flight Review. And we’ll help you connect with flight instructors in your area so you can take the next step and quickly get back to active flying status. Best of all, Rusty Pilots seminars are FREE for AOPA members.
As an added bonus, attending this FREE to AOPA members seminar can be a substitute for ground portion of your Flight Review. After the seminar, our CFIs will be available to schedule your flight portion of the Flight Review.
With the 3rd Class Medical Reform becoming law in May, 2017, there is no reason for you to hold off on flying!
