Stuck Mic AvCast Episode 18 : Aircraft Accidents, Recurrent Training, and Pilot Proficiency

Both Carl and Len are airline pilots and go through a great deal of recurrent flight and ground training each year. As an airline Captain, Carl has recurrent ground training once a year and recurrent simulator every six months. As an airline First Office, Len has has the same except his simulator training is only once every 12 months.

As general aviation pilots, we’re only required to have a flight review every 24 months. Do you think that’s safe? Do you think that’s enough to maintain your proficiency for your flight certificates? During this episode, we spent a great deal of time discussing recurrent pilot training, how to stay proficient, and sharing co-host methods for staying safe in their respective aircraft including some excellent reasons why recurrent training is not only important, but extremely beneficial.
