Once you obtain your pilots license, you have it forever. There are some requirements however that need to be done in order to keep flying. One of those requirements is the Biennial Flight Review, and I was able to get it done in just the nick of time.
Yesterday evening, I met up with my instructor at 6:30 to do some ground followed by a flight. The ground was a good session going over a number of topics I need to memorize and work on. After a flight prep, we were off.
