    1 & 2 – You need to have done a flight review in the 24 calendar month period preceding the day you want to act as PIC. If you have not done it, you cannot act as PIC until you do. There is nothing requiring you to do the flight review before your current one runs out.

    3 – You only need to do a flight review in one of the aircraft for which you are rated.

    4 – FIrst, the Redbird is not a simulator. It is an Advanced Aviation Training Device (AATD). Second, you cannot do a flight review in an AATD. You can however do some tasks for an Instrument Proficiency Check (IPC) in an AATD. Don’t you like to fly? Why wouldn’t you want to do the flight review in an airplane? The cost differential is not that great.

    thank you sir for your kindness to answer.

    May i ask:
    in the scenario i dont make it on time,(November 2016) i am not able to act as PIC.
    if i make it for example, april 2017 , the 2 years will start count from that period?

    * i was mention about the simulator possibility to execute a biennial review only for the option to save some cash from from actual flying :).
