Private Pilot License – 4 Critical Facts You Must Know Before Flight Training

March 15, 2010

When an individual focuses on becoming a pilot their desire becomes the main emphasis and sort of forgetting all that is going to be involved in attaining the goal of becoming a private pilot. There is much to be learned before one can achieve success in this field. Many factors must be considered prior to soaring into the wild blue yonder.
One very important aspect of flying is weather conditions. Perhaps in the past, you never gave much of a thought about how the weather was going to be but once you become a pilot that is a major consideration you will have to make prior to every plane trip you venture out on.
First, you will have to learn about the various air masses and fronts that occur. These are dependant on their location and there are the tropical and polar air masses. In addition, you must learn that when reference to air mass over water it is called maritime and then over land its known as continental. Finally, it will be categorized as warm or cold. The path that the air mass follows dictates what it will become. It stands to reason a mass over water is going to pick up more moisture. Along a masses journey it will meet up with some of the different types. To separate these variations there is what is called a front. In respect to flying, a cold front produces better flying conditions. For the most part, it will be clean, heavy, and stable and smooth which creates good clear visibility to make optimum flying conditions. As the fronts move quickly, they can turn quickly into violent thunderstorms.
Everybody when it comes to terms of weather enjoys hearing about a warm front moving in. For the pilot it means they are more spread out and if they are slow moving, particularly they will bring precipitation and poor visibility. A most annoying condition is when the front becomes stationery. This means it has virtually come to a spot. The outcome of this is a mist producing poor visibility for the pilot. In most cases though the weather will be non-violent and creating no turbulence.
Every pilot must give strict attention to air pressure. The more favorable flying conditions take place in the cooler temperatures where one finds cumulus clouds. Attempts should always be made to fly in the cooler segments of air pressure.
A pilot must always remain keenly aware of potential weather problems. This includes winds, turbulence, reduced ceiling, poor visibility, and icing up. Although we have amazing weather forecasting capabilities we are still a long way from being perfect. For example, the weatherman cannot predict the location of severe turbulence, and icing. It is not possible yet to predict thunderstorms before they occur, or the presence of fog. An accurate estimate of these conditions taking place can be made up to 24 hours of the event, but not really beyond that.
The wise pilot should be aware that the current clear weather forecast is only reliable for the next 24-hour period. A poor weather prediction will cover a time span of about 3-4 hours. Finally, when it comes down to predictions of ceiling and visibility the information can only be relied on for the first 2-3 hours.

You always wanted to learn how to fly a helicopter right? Well, don’t just seat there in envy as you watch those normal people fly and enjoy flying. You have to take the first step to get yourself on the stick. You have to enroll on helicopter flight training. Don’t know how?
Here are the things you should know when you are considering enrolling for a helicopter flight training:
The cost.
Upon considering the idea of enrolling for helicopter flight training, the first question you should ask yourself is: Do I have the money? Since flight training involves expensive machine you have to pay to use, you need to make sure that you can maintain the cost. This is a long-term engagement so before you take flight training you have to make sure that you have enough resources up to the end. Meanwhile, there are flight training schools that offer financial assistance to trainees like you. You can search for this information on the training school site.
Finding and selecting flight training school that fits you.
Finding a flight training school may be easy. Here you should consider the cost, the proximity to your place, and the programs they offer. Selecting one involves more criteria.
When selecting a flight training school, it is not enough that you base it on the cost the program. Since you are the student and you are paying big time here, make sure that you check on the eligibility of the flight school you are considering. Weight the school on the criteria of maintenance capability, safety record, and pilot management. You should also talk to your possible flight instructor. Know if the instructor fits your personality. Remember that you will be spending many hours with each other so you better choose one who is fun to be with.
The flight medical certificate.
One important paper you should have if you want to fly is the flight medical certificate. Without it, you can never fly. There are 3 kinds of flight medical certificate: first class medical that is required for an Airline Transport Pilot, second class medical that is required to fly commercial, and the third class medical for private flying.
It is very frustrating if you have finished the training but failed to acquire any of these medical certificates so be sure about that you obtain one before the training.
Do your homework and research on all these 3.
