    No, neither bi-annual nor biennial.

    I think the word that means every two yrs is spelled "biennial" and no, I don't do those as I comply with the FAR through other means.

    If that is your summary of a flight review, perhaps the CFI's are the ones that need training.

    Most pilots do not like having their skills evaluated which seems to be the obstacle in any proficiency program. If you can remove that threat, then I think you'll have a winner.

    I have been a CFI since long before BFRs / FRs were required and while people may cuss me and the "NEW" program for FRs, I have had to refuse to sign only three BFRs/FRs since it started in '73. Also it has always been funny for (even CFIs) to call 'em biannuals. That's my 0.02 cents worth.

    Have you been near the wings program in the last ten years?

    Yes, not super impressed. Earned the basic wings and it pretty much did nothing for me.
