Top Courses in Pilot Training

A Course in Pilot Training is for those candidates seeking a career in aviation. The course is divided into two parts: ground training and flight training. People who are successfully licensed through training may go on to pursue employment with an airline or to seek a higher diploma in Aviation Science.

A person interested in becoming a pilot may want to know, what is a Course in Pilot Training? This field of study is taught all over the world to goals set by international standards. The course itself may take several months to complete. Ground School covers modern aviation theory. Students familiarize themselves with different types of aircraft and multi-engine flight technique. After Ground School, candidates for licensing attend Flight School, wherein they participate hands-on about the science and practice of flight. Students come to understand Standard Operating Procedures and airline philosophy.

The benefits of the course include an in-depth knowledge of contemporary aviation, a Frozen ATLP License (for theory), a CPL License with IR, SE and ME ratings, and the qualifications to move onto a more advanced degree in Aviation Science. The course allows a new pilot entry into the aviation industry.

Pilot Training Courses are offered all over the world. Fees vary from school to school. It is best to contact an admissions office directly for accurate information regarding the costs of taking the course.

Aviation continues to be a growing industry. A number of careers are open to licensed pilots. A course may be a giant step toward employment with a large commercial airline. Sizable and successful corporations often employ pilots to fly their planes for business trips. Charter plane services need pilots to fly private citizens to island resorts and beyond. Remote mail service and delivery is another opportunity for a licensed pilot.

Reinforce safety by becoming an Instrument Pilot.

It is a known fact that flying at night is much more difficult than flying during the day. That being said, in both Canada and Europe, an instrument rating is required by law in order to fly at night. With an instrument rating, a professional private pilot is no longer limited to flying only by visual references. He can now enter the clouds for the first time, flying solely by the instruments within the cockpit. Having an instrument rating will give you peace of mind during low visibility and low ceiling situations.

All students are trained vigorously on instrument flying in our flight simulator as well as in a physical aircraft. Navigation in both a simulator or actual aircraft requires great focus on each and every instrument, therefore allowing the student to perfect his instrument flying skills without the use of visual references. During training the student will be trained to fly on instruments during climbs, descents, straight and level flight, standard rate turns, steep turns, holding patterns, precision and non-precision approaches, normal procedures, abnormal procedures, and emergency procedures. Additional topics covered in this course are ATC communications, navigation from one airport to another, pre-flight planning, fuel planning, instrument testing prior to takeoff, weather evaluation, and Cockpit Resource Management. CRM is the utilization of all available resources that include situational awareness, optimal decision making, communication, stress, and a discussion of various scenarios that an instrument pilot may encounter....
