Been Out of the Cockpit For Awhile? Here’s How to Get Back In!

Think you’ve lost too much and forgotten everything?  Afraid it’ll be like starting over?  No worries, AOPA Australia Rusty Pilots will get you back in the left seat fast!

Getting Back To Flying: Easier Than You Think

If you’re like more than 10,000 other general aviation pilots, you’ve taken a little breather from flying.  Maybe more than a little.  Perhaps life threw you a curve.  Maybe the pitter-patter of little feet, a growing business, or a medical setback had something to do with it.  Whatever the case, things are different now.  You’re back in the game and would like to start flying again.  You’ve come to the right place.

No Checkride Required. You Can Do This.

You may have forgotten that pilot licenses never expire – once a pilot, always a pilot.  You never have to take another test or worry about another checkride.  All you need is a Flight Review (formerly known as a Biennial Flight Review).  That’s it. A little brush-up with your local CFI, enough flights to demonstrate competence again (minimum one hour), and – presto! – you’re back in the air. Seriously, that’s all it takes!

A Rusty Pilots Seminar Gets You Started

AOPA Australia has put together a fun, interactive program that gives you all the information you need to get current again.  Our dynamic instructor presenters will bring you up to speed on hot-button issues like medical reforms, weather briefings, preflight planning, regulations, and airspace.  You’ll leave the seminar with a certificate attesting that you’ve completed three hours of ground training toward your Flight Review.  And we’ll help you connect with flight instructors in your area so you can take the next step and quickly get back to active flying status.  Best of all, Rusty Pilots seminars are FREE for AOPA Australia members!
