With summer around the corner, a lot of pilots are trying to get current in their aircraft - and in some cases, they need a flight review to get back in the air. The AOPA Air Safety Foundation's Safety Hot Spot Pilot Proficiency and the Flight Review will help you get up to speed on flight review requirements. It offers tips for making the flight review more than just a biennial box-checking exercise. Each Safety Hot Spot focuses on a timely issue or trend within the general aviation community and offers a host of resources including interactive online courses, pertinent accident reports, AOPA and AOPA Air Safety Foundation publications, a Safety Checkup written by foundation staff pilots, a Safety Quiz, and links to related Web sites. Previous Safety Hot Spots are available in the archive.
