Pilots can earn a fresh Flight Review (formerly known as a Biennial Flight Review or BFR) at Rochester WINGs by participating in the WINGS - Pilot Proficiency Program. All pilots are required to complete a Flight Review every 24 calendar months; so why not get it done all in one day at Rochester WINGs! Participation will ensure that you’re both legal and safe.

“As an active pilot of single and multi-engine aircraft as well as gliders, I understand the importance of recurrent training. I had participated in the “old” WINGs Program but was skeptical when the FAA launched the “new” program.
However, after I began participating in the new program I quickly realized what an exciting, robust and easy-to-use program it really was. I can easily customize it for the type of flying that I do. I enjoy taking quality safety courses in the comfort of my home that result in me being a better and safer pilot. It’s a bonus when my insurance company takes a 10% discount off of my premium! Tracking my progress and achievements reminds me that aviation learning is an ongoing endeavor; and best of all, it’s free!
Completing a flight review every 2 years might make me legal, but I owe it to my students, passengers and family, to be proficient, not just current. The airlines do it; corporate flight departments do it; and I would prefer to learn from their lessons?”
