Starting a flight School

Starting a flight School Offering Flight Instruction Services As with any other business venture, the success of starting a flight school depends heavily not only upon the capital invested in it but also in its quality and uniqueness. Owning your own aircraft makes more economical sense than leasing it. Profit margins may be smaller than those earned by bigger charter air services and airlines, but they are constant and reliable. There is always an influx of pilot students year round and most of them train for about a year or more. This means that there is always a good volume of profit coming in year round while charters and airlines

Will simulators take over flight training?

Will simulators take over flight training? The application of technology in aviation has today gone way beyond anything we could have imagined 15 or 20 years ago. One of the amazing technological developments we have seen develop over the years is flight simulators. Even though simulators have been in use as far back as World War One, today’s simulators are extremely advanced and realistic. This advancement and realism has brought forth the debate as to what the role of simulators is in flight training and whether they help improve the skills of pilots who use them.

Flight Simulators

Flight Simulators Flight Training Devices versus Aircrafts There has always been a big debate about flight training in simulators versus in an aircraft. Simulators have been in use from as far back as the First World War. Back then they were simple simulators resembling flight training devices (FTD’s). Technology has come a long way and manufacturers have been able to create flight simulators that have a very real feel. These training devices go as far as creating motion, and simulating real-world problem scenarios. The history of flight simulators spans from the time when airplanes were invented. Aviators quickly realized that they needed to familiarize themselves with the aircraft before they

Pre-Flight Weather Sources

Aviation Pre-Flight Weather Sources Sources of Pre-Flight Weather Information A large part of safe flying includes getting the latest aviation weather information before flight. This applies both to Visual Flight Rules (VFR) and Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). You should start by getting general weather information long before the flight.

Pre Flight Planning

Pre Flight Planning Preparing for your flight Many people who are unfamiliar with aviation think that the flight begins when the airplanes wheels lift of the ground. This is very untrue, unless the pilot wants to court disaster. The flight begins hours if not days before the pilot takes off. A safe flight requires good planning and good contingency measures. Preparation includes: weather briefings, filing a flight plan, acquisition of NOTAMS, frequency and NAVAID channels, etc. One of the most common causes of air crashes is poor pre flight planning. It is common practice to find pilots going for a flight without prior planning or with little preparation. This lack

Topics spread into many different directions and it’s hard to predict what questions are going to be asked and on what subject matter.

Like with most other phases of aviation, night flight has its pros and cons. There are various extra checks that pilots need to make during their pre-flight and planning phase. All pilots need to be in tune with the various checklists and reaction sequences needed in case of any emergency action if required. While the risks of flying at night are higher, there are steps in place to curb accidents and increase flight safety. Visibility is different at night and pilots tend to see illusions
