Very Light Jets


Very Light Jets One of the latest innovations in the aviation world is Very Light Jets (VLJs). VLJs are jet-powered aircraft that are approved for single-pilot operation, and whose maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) is below 10,000 pounds. They are designed to be lighter than business-jets. VLJs are also known as micro-jets or entry-level jets. They usually have one or two small engines and carry between four to eight passengers. The intention of the aircraft designer was to have an aircraft with low-maintenance costs. The jets are designed to operate from small runways 3,000 feet or less.

Simulators in 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. Those who are pro simulators have argued that these devices are now good enough

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.

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.
