Before flying plane, pilots are required to calm down and feel relaxed so they can do their jobs as well as possible. Anyway, if you are a new pilot, what do you do before flying plane?

Btw, this meeting is held 30 minutes before taking off.

Release your stress

If you feel depressed or stress out because of you personal problems, you should control yourself and think positively so you can release your stress. What if you still stress out? Entertain yourself by listening to favorite musics, chatting with your beloved ones, playing video games, watching funny videos, eating favorite foods, or taking a few minutes to take a rest. Whatever things that you want to do are, make sure that you don’t waste time because you have to do flight.

In other hand, if you let stress take over your mind and heart, you will lose concentration so your jobs will not be optimal. Realize that your profession is very dangerous because if you do any mistakes, you can harm or make passengers die. For instance, if you get out from flight path, plane can deal with turbulence and plane engine can get broken. If this happens, plane will fall down at last.

Pray to God

You need to know that God is everything. You can ask for security, comfort, health, and anyting to God. Unfortunately, not all people realize it. They assume that their life is their own. They are free to do anything. If you are not a religious person, you have to remain praying to God. By doing this, you can get peace and concentration so you can do your jobs well. The question is when or how to do this? It is easy because you can do this before doing good things. How? It depends on your religion and faith.

Don’t Choose Pilot School Carelessly If You Don’t Want to… December 8, 2015

To achieve the profession as a pilot, surely it must first be educated in school pilot. Of course, through education prospective pilots can learn to train yourself not to be afraid of heights, studying a series of tools plane including learning how to take off, emergency landing, overcoming the turbulence, and others associated with the world of aviation, so that when applying for or received physical and mental work is ready to carry out responsibilities as a pilot. Talking about the pilot profession that must first be achieved with a pilot undergoing school education, if you want to persevere? If so, be sure not to select the pilot schools at random. Find a lot of information from various news sources, either via television or the Internet to be able to choose the right pilot schools. If not, it is not possible negative things like this you will experience:

The quality of learning is not satisfactory

Without looking at schools with a good reputation could be the quality of learning undertaken also unsatisfactory. For example, a relatively minimal amount of training aircraft so that the cadet pilots had to queue to get their turn to fly. Likewise for the simulator, how can the cadets get an idea of the maximum if the already existing simulator can not function properly and the numbers are only slightly. In addition, it is also related to the instructor, the instructor when lack of discipline certainly the material obtained is also relatively small and certainly the cadet to lose. Keep in mind that, poor quality of learning will certainly affect the quality of learning outcomes obtained. Therefore, do not try selecting pilot schools with random if you do not want to experience such things.

Licenses less support

Each school also has the advantages of each, one of them a license. License is in the form of a certificate for a permit to fly(or can also be regarded as a driver’s license when the vehicle on the ground). Each school must offer a variety of license, but the license offered generally different. Therefore, selecting pilot schools that had higher license, why not.

  1. PPL (Private Pilot Licence) to fly a single-engine aircraft, such as jets and helicopters.
  2. CPL (Commercial Pilot Licence) has allowed pilots to fly commercial aircraft, with a minimum requirement already pocketed 200 hours of flying to get this license.
  3. IR (Instrument Rating) as a complement to CPL license, but the license is more credible IR pilot to fly the aircraft even in cloudy weather.
  4. MER (Multi-Engine Rating) pilot can already be trusted to fly a plane with multiple engines in which the second flight the engine must be balanced. But interestingly, the MER license in addition to working in the airline pilots could also be an instructor at flight schools.

Obtaining higher license certainly better, is not it? Of course because of job opportunities will be more wide open. Fatal, if you choose a school at random or not to consider it from the beginning, it is not possible at the school that you choose only offer licenses PPL and CPL, while for IR and MER should continue to fly outside of school hours.

A relatively longer duration of education

In addition to the quality of learning that is not satisfying and less supportive license, which also will be a regret when selecting pilot schools with random duration of education is relatively longer. If the duration of education adopted for 1.5 years, would be a loss than can be reached in just over 1 year, because in half a year when it is already working in the airline would have been able to generate a salary in the amount of tens of millions of Indonesian rupiah and the exact number of hours fly also been increased. That is why it is said will hurt when selecting pilot schools regardless of the duration of education carefully.

In addition to some of the above, the cost of education will also be problematic when choosing schools in vain. It could be more costly, while such waivers can be repaid and the loan is not obtained. In fact, the system of loan repayments or school fees could be lighter. Thus, in order that no one chose the pilot schools are advised to look at the review of the flight school in advance to obtain the right school.
