  1. Can't see the mixture control but, the throttle is in the full power forward position also, Pilot statement said "Pulled power and the aircraft skidded down runway"

  2. Pilot statement #4: "Older pilots like myself should strongly consider bi-annual flight review".

    Ummm....I'm not quite sure what to make of that statement. A biannual flight review is a REQUIREMENT for a private pilot, not "something to be considered".

    1. biannual
      occurring twice a year.

      taking place every other year.

      What is required (per 14 CFR 61.56) is a flight review at least every 24 months - or what used to be called a Biennial Flight Review (BFR).

      Our accident pilot thinks it would be wise to make them happen biannually, or every six months, for older pilots like himself.
