An ergodic flow is said to have the weak Pinsker property if it admits a decreasing sequence of factors whose entropies tend to zero and each of which has a Bernoulli complement. We show that this property is preserved under taking factors and d-limits. In addition, we show that a flow has the weak Pinsker property whenever one ergodic transformation in the flow has this property.
