This advisory circular (AC) provides information and standards for the preparation and approval of training course outlines (TCO) for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)-approved, industry-conducted flight instructor refresher courses (FIRC) in accordance with Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 61, § 61.197(a)(2)(iii). The intent of the FIRC program is to keep flight instructors informed of the changing world of General Aviation (GA) flight training and to enhance aviation safety through continued refresher training of the flight instructor cadre. Attending a FIRC is one of several methods by which a flight instructor may renew his or her flight instructor certificate. This AC provides one acceptable method by which the FAA may approve a FIRC program.
