FLIGHT REVIEWS (BONANZA ONLY)

All flight instruction in your dual-yoke Bonanza is in San Diego county and northern Mexico, for high-performance and complex endorsements, Mexico checkouts, flight reviews.  

Download the forms below to help you prepare for your upcoming flight review. If you would like to add Mexico Flying to your review, plan on an extra two hours, and bring your current passport, proof of insurance coverage in Mexico (your own policy with Mexico coverage stated in Spanish is OK), original aircraft and pilot documents, a current Customs Decal.

FLIGHT REVIEWS PILOTS OVER 65

Although your physical and mental fitness are more predictive of safe flight than your age, there are physiological age-related changes that can make flight unsafe. Happily, these are preventable. Unhappily, many pilots allow these to progress until frontal lobe involvement creates a lack of awareness of difficulties and make intervention difficult.

Virtually all factors interfering with flight can be prevented, corrected or compensated for. If you self-refer for assessment or refer a friend or relative, expect the following:

a. a conversation with both the pilot and referring friend.

b. cognitive assessment that can determine which if any of the five brain changes might be interfering with flight. We'll assess your physical health and if needed, refer you for vision or hearing assessment

c. a thorough preflight where we'll talk about the process of progressive overload, complexity and distraction.

d. the flight review where you will be tested on a. attention and focus b. reaction time and processing speed, visual-spatial orientation, multi-tasking and attention-shifting, and memory as you perform the required maneuvers and flight operations.

e. a list of suggested factors to correct, suggestions for safe flight and compensatory behaviors.

The brain is plastic. It can rehab at any age.
