  • Revised basic VFR weather minimums content.
  • Restructured medical certification content and added new questions about BasicMed.
  • Added new questions and made numerous revisions per FAA changes.
  • Removed outdated questions due to changes in the flying environment.

Additionally, new information covering ICAO flight plans has been added where appropriate in anticipation of the mandatory use of the FAA International Flight Plan form 7233-4 which goes into effect August 27 for domestic as well as international use. More information will be available regarding ICAO flight plans soon.
