SCOPE OF THE FLIGHT REVIEW

 

The flight review – RPAS consists of the planning, preparation, and completion of a RPAS flight. Although aircraft performances and weight and balance are not tested as separate exercises, it is expected that the candidate will use all the applicable performance data as well as all the approved operating procedures required for a flight.

 

THE FLIGHT REVIEW IS NOT A TRAINING FLIGHT but an evaluation of the candidate’s knowledge and flight skills.
