Factors to consider before choosing pilot training school

For the aspiring pilot, flight training is the single most important part of their career. Without good flight training, one cannot become a pilot. Because of this, it is vital the student choose the right flight school.

One of the first factors one must consider is location. That includes the country the school operates in. The country should have a good reputation in the aviation world, and its licenses should be recognized world-wide as well as easily convertible. Canada, the United States, and European Union issue highly respected pilot licenses. Location also includes geography and climate. Although no place will have perfect weather all the time, the location should be expected to have flyable weather on most days.

Another important consideration is the fleet and facilities of the school. The school should have a fleet of well maintained aircraft, with modern equipment. Aircraft should have instruments and equipment preparing the student for the modern airline cockpit. The class and briefing rooms should be well lit, with proper desks and proper audiovisual aids. All of these are essential for a proper learning environment.

A flying school should also have good instructors with a professional attitude. Every school will have instructors wishing to “move on” in their career, but a student must be careful of instructors who are not interested in their students, or flight schools tolerating such behavior. The student’s relationship with their instructor is one of the most important professional relationships they will ever have.

The school should also provide an enjoyable learning environment. Although this is not as essential as facilities or good flight training, it motivates the student to perform well. Many schools provide social events for students such as barbecues and trips to near-by tourist attractions. This breaks up the monotony for the student, encourages them to make new friends, and motivates them to do well in their course.

HM Aviation has tie-ups with schools from around the world for their cadet program. All schools are carefully selected to ensure they provide the best possible training and learning environment for students. Career councilors at HM Aviation will assist the student in choosing which school is right for them.Selection of a proper flying school is one of the most important decisions a student will ever make. Choosing a good school not only provides for a more pleasant learning environment, but puts the student’s career to a great start.

How to become a pilot – Guide to Fly as a pilot

You’ve been to the airport, and looked to the sky. Flying is definitely what you want to do! The first step is in deciding flying really is what you want to do. It sounds obvious, but flying requires a large financial commitment, and time and effort. Like any other career, you must decide it really is for you before you pursue it.

Once you have made the decision flying is for you, you must decide on a location and flying school. HM Aviation has a cadet program, and tie-ups with flight schools in Canada, the United States, South Africa and New Zealand. It is often better to choose a training location abroad, rather than stay in India. These countries have licenses which are recognized world-wide. Training in other countries is not only an adventure, but better prepares one for the airline world. HM Aviation has a wide variety of locations and flight schools, and assists every student in choosing what is right for them.
During flight training, the private pilot license is the first step. This involves flying dual, with an instructor, and solo. A flight test is also required. Ground school must also be attended, and a written exam passed.

The next step is the commercial pilot license. More flying hours must be accumulated, more dual and solo training, as well as another flight test must be completed. Additional ground school and a written exam are also required. This is the stage where most students complete their night rating.

The cadet program then trains students for their multi-engine and instrument ratings. The multi-engine rating allows the holder to fly an aircraft with more than 1 engine; the instrument rating allows the holder to fly in reduced weather/ visibility. These ratings are required for all airline and corporate pilots. Upon completion of flight training, the individual must undergo the selection process of an airline. This includes: interviews, aptitude testing, psychometric testing, and simulator evaluations. The HM Aviation cadet program fully prepares the candidate for this.

It may sound like a long and difficult process to become a pilot, but it is important the individual be fully prepared for the demands of the career. Most careers involve a longer process, but few provide the excitement of becoming a pilot. The process is well worth it for one desiring a rewarding career as a pilot.

A Must for Getting a Job as a Commercial Pilot

Many people dream of a career as a pilot; the freedom and excitement you can’t get from a “regular job”. For those serious about a pilot career, it will take a large investment, both in money and time. A lot of effort is necessary, and one must persevere when the going gets rough.

The first and most important step in becoming a pilot is the decision that one really wants to become a pilot. This sounds obvious, but one must think of the reasons they want to become a pilot. Is one so passionate about flying they cannot stand to do anything else? Perhaps one wants a career with the opportunity for travel. If you want a career with the opportunity to travel, a cabin crew position might be right for you. One should become a pilot only if they are passionate about it.

The next step is in training. Becoming a pilot requires intensive flight training, and a flight exam. The private and commercial licenses as well as most ratings require a flight exam. In addition to flight training, a student pilot must attend ground school, and pass a written exam. The private and commercial licenses also require a written exam. This takes effort, and one must think of the end goal for motivation.

For getting one’s first job, and throughout one’s entire career, having a professional attitude is essential. Having the attitude one knows everything after finishing their commercial pilot’s license is dangerous, and will not be tolerated by an employer. A pilot must be a team player, and always willing to learn if they want a successful career.

One must choose their desired career path, and be the best they possibly can at every stage. One may wish to become an airline or corporate pilot. Others may become charter pilots or flight instructors. Some may become bush pilots, flying into remote lakes or locations.

Whatever one’s final goal, they have an obligation to do each step of their career to the best of their ability.

An exciting career awaits those who really want it. The aviation industry is poised for record growth, which will result in record opportunities for pilots and other aviation personnel. The rewards are enormous for those willing to work for it.

After getting a medical, the first step in flight training, regardless of personal goals is the private pilot license. This license allows the individual the privilege of flying an aircraft, and passengers, but not for pay. The private pilot course requires one to train with an instructor, fly solo, and successfully complete a flight test. The student must also attend ground school and successfully complete a written exam.

The next step in flight training is the commercial pilot license. The private pilot license is a prerequisite for commercial pilot training.

Another option is the multi-engine rating and instrument rating. The multi-engine rating allows one to fly an aircraft with more than one engine; the instrument rating allows the pilot to fly in marginal weather. Both endorsements are necessary to fly charters, corporate or for the airlines.Many training options are available, and many career options are available for the aspiring pilot.
