Completion of any Phase of WINGS satisfies the requirement for a flight review. So not only will you complete a review of significant safety items, but you will also end up with a flight review, as well!


If you are not already enrolled in the WINGS Program,
the FAA has two excellent resources to help you enroll in and to navigate the WINGS Program: the FAA Advisory Circular on the WINGS – Pilot Proficiency Program, AC61-91J, and a WINGS User’s Guide.
