I completed my bi-annual flight review this week. Every two years a private pilot must receive ground instruction and a flight review. Just to keep my license. It was good. I hadn't flown my plane that hard previously (no reason to) and I was very satisfied with how well this plane behaves. We should do a similar check-out with car licenses. It will help save lives. Fatal car accidents are real and the numbers are staggering. I think we have almost two thousand deaths in Georgia alone just this year so far. While at the same time if a single engine plane crashes it makes national news, even without a fatality. I am not sure why the media ignores car fatalities and aggrandizes aviation fatalities. I find it very distasteful.
