What is pilot training?

  • Categories Course

During the training, pilots are prepared for their daily flying routine. Pilot training consists of different parts. On the one hand, there is the ground training, where the prospective pilot learns about aviation regulations, aircraft systems, flight planning and aircraft performance, but also about the weather and meteorological conditions. 

On the other hand, there are the flight lessons! These of course include take-off, landings and ground maneuvers, but the aspiring pilot would also be taught performance manuevers, stalls and stall recovery, as well as emergency training. These all help ensure a pilot is prepared for all conditions and situations.

In addition to their basic training, pilots can take additional training courses, ratings. There are different categories of ratings - type ratings and instrument ratings. With the help of type ratings, a pilot can acquire further training for certain types of aircraft, whereas instrument ratings focus teaching the pilot to fly using  only reference to the instruments.
