Basics of Piloting

Becoming a pilot sounds like a tough job, and we are not here to tell you otherwise. To become a pilot, you need to train and study hard. After all, the lives of so many individuals depend on your skills. But do not let this discourage you! Like any other challenging endeavor, it can be absolutely surmountable. First, you have to know the basics.  

 What are the top 3 things you have to know about piloting?  

Knowing what kind of pilot you want to be 

Each type of pilot has a specific job  description. With that comes a difference in requirements as well. Age requirements, examinations, training for commercial and private piloting differ. From the start, you need to know which path you want to take, so you can think about the best proper school to enroll in.  

Mastering certain  subjects 

When you enroll in a flying school, it does not only involve learning how to fly the plane. You need to learn about other topics as well. As a pilot, you must know the basics of first aid. You have to know certain laws about territorial jurisdiction, both local and international laws on aviation. All these things should be in the pilot’s arsenal in case of any circumstance that may arise during a flight.  

Learning about the plane  

Being a pilot means that you have to know the aircraft like the back of your hand. While it is true that there are aviation engineers, staff, and assistants to help you maintain the plane. The pilot, as the head of the aircraft, should be aware of what transpires in each part of the plane. It is where the knowledge about the aircraft comes in handy. In aviation schools, pilots are not only taught to fly the plane but to know the plane as well. He must recognize when a part of the engine is malfunctioning or deteriorating. Or when other parts need to be repaired and taken care of.
