More and more pilots are leaving their licence renewal process until the last few days in the month that it expires. It would appear that they are worried about the validity dates of their licence changing.
Inevitably what happens is, for one reason or another, they cannot do their renewal flight test on their planned date and their licence expires, leading to all sorts of issues.
Quite simply put - you can do your renewal on any day within the month that your licence expires and the validity dates will remain the same!
In other words, if your licence expires on the 31st day of March, you can do the renewal on the 1st of March (the same year!) and the validity dates will remain the same!
Don't leave your renewal to the last week of the month and then expect the school to work some kind of magic when it expires! It is your personal licence and your responsibility to keep it valid!
Please also take time to read the preparation for flight review articles on this web site to ensure you come prepared for your flight review. Doing this will make the process less arduous for both you and your examiner and may even afford you the opportunity to brush up on your skills or lear something new.
