Pilot Training  
 
 

Pilots are highly trained professionals who fly airplanes and helicopters carrying passengers or cargo. The job of a pilot is a highly specialized one. It requires knowledge of air navigation, interpretation of meteorological reports, operating sophisticated electronic and mechanical controls, leading the aircraft under adverse circumstances, and being a leader to the flight crew and passengers under climatic and other emergency situations.


The professional pilot includes not only the ability to control the aircraft physically but also to make the right decisions in complex situations where time is a critical factor. The pilot keeps in mind the safety of the aircraft, the comfort of the passengers and crew and the airline’s schedule and efficiency. Pilot field is all about discipline, patience, responsibility, punctuality, commitment and self-confidence.

Sport Pilot (Sport pilots generally fly in aircraft that fly at low speeds less than 100 mph.)
