Private Pilot License

. The private pilot license enables you to fly a plane in both a small airport and a larger airport controlled by an air tower. With a private pilot license, you can fly during the day and at night time.You can take passengers with you and travel on both business and leisure trips.

Your passengers can help out with operating costs but they cannot pay you for travel. To be paid for travel, you have to acquire a commercial license. Private pilot licenses are the most popular licenses available for the general public. You can fly small two-seater planes popular in the 1970s and 1980s as well as the faster, lighter four-seater planes such as the Cessna 152.

Glider Pilot License

Gliders, sailplanes, they are wonderful flying machines. It’s the closest you can come to being a bird. — Neil Armstrong

A glider is a plane that does not require an engine to sustain its flight. Some gliders, called motor gliders, have engines that help them take off. However, once the glider is in the air, the motor neatly tucks away into the plane and does not interfere with the air currents or flight pattern.

The air up there in the clouds is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. And why shouldn’t it be? —it is the same the angels breathe.

Mark Twain, Roughing It, Chapter XXII, 1886

Getting a <a rel=”nofollow” onclick=”javascript:_gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’, ‘/outgoing/article_exit_link’]);” href=”http://www.privatepilotssecrets.com”> pilot’s license </a> opens up doors of opportunities you may never have envisioned before. In the United States, you can get a private pilot’s license which will allow you to fly single-engine aircraft and carry passengers. You can upgrade this license to further advanced certificates and licenses.

The basic steps for getting your private pilot license are:

1. Be at least sixteen years of age and be able to read, speak, and write English fluently.

2. Enroll in a licensed flight school. Costs range from $3,000 to $4,000 for both ground school and flight training.

3.  Obtain a medical certificate from a qualified doctor of aviation medicine before starting the course.

4. Complete the three-to-five week ground school course.

5. Take the written Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) test at the end of the course work. The test consists of one hundred multiple-choice

6. Complete thirty to forty hours of actual flight time with the instructor.The school provides the plane.

7. Complete your “solo” flight without an instructor on board.

8. Complete your final exam or “check ride” accompanied by an FAAcertified examiner who will ask you questions and assess your abilities.

9. Receive your private pilot’s license with a visual flight rating. This allows you to pilot a single-engine aircraft in good visibility during the day or at night.

Getting your private pilot’s license is not only a straightforward, clear process, but also a lot of fun. Flying is an acquired skill and truly, for a pilot, the sky is the limit. Flight training consists of a minimum of forty hours of flight time which can be broken down into the following parts:

20 hours flight training from the certified Instructor which includes:

3 hours of cross country flight

3 hours of night flight including:

Private Pilot License

Air pressure is a very important part of flying. In general, a pilot will want to fly in ‘stable’ air conditions which often occur in cooler temperatures of high pressure such as cumulus clouds and avoid low pressure areas of higher temperatures and instability. Of course, these temperatures are relative. For example, if an area of 90° F is surrounded by a cooler belt of 85° F, you will want to fly in the cooler belt of 85° F.

How does the Airline pilot start out?

I’m a young private pilot interested in commercial aviation. Now, I know you can go to schools for it like Embry Riddle and such or do the Armed forces route, but how do you get a job at an airline? Do you just apply and they train you on a low level express aircraft? And how do you move up?

The First Royal Air Force (RAF) Pilots

Edit Article |

Posted: Jul 20, 2010 |Comments: 0

]]>

There have always been a keen interest from people on the military pilots. So I thought of writing this article about the formation of the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the first RAF Pilots.

The desire to fly like a bird goes back many centuries and is reflected in the many myths of flying dragons and flying horses such as Pegasus. There has always been a magic about the very idea of flying and that magic is linked to the way all men and women look up at the sky, particularly when the stars are there, and wonder.

RAF pilots experience that wonder every time they sit in their aeroplane, increase the power, and begin the take – off run.

So how did it all begin?

The first known form of Military Air Power was in China as early as 200 BC when General Han Hsin used a man kite to calculate the distance between his army and the opposing forces. Chinese forces used kites to pass signals and may have used them as bomb carriers.The explorer Marco Polo, when in Cathay in the 14th century told of seafarers tying unwilling people to large tethered kites. If they flew well it indicated a successful voyage. Man carrying kites were also used in Japan in the 19th century.

In Europe bomb laden kites appear in sketches about 1326 AD. The dream of flight started to have some practical realisation with the advent of ballooning in France where it developed as a sport and for entertainment.

We need to jump forward to 1909.

Flying was slow to start in England being confined to a few individuals with little government support. This changed when Louis Bleriot flew his monoplane across the channel in July 1909. The first British Pilot’s Licence was issued to Moore -Brabazon

after he won the daily Mail prize for flying a circular flight of one mile in his Short Biplane.

The army were the first to recognise the potential of aircraft for reconnaissance purposes and the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) came into being. The initial plans were to form a unified air service but old service rivalries prevented this so the Navy had their own air arm The Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS). Throughout the First World War (1914-1918) the two services operated separately. On 1st April 1918 the two services were joined to become The Royal Air Force (RAF) thus the RAF pilot was born.

In the early days the RAF Pilot had to contend with antiquated aircraft and a constantly changing administration. The government lacked enthusiasm for Air Power but appointed General Sir Hugh Trenchard as Chief of the Air Staff. He set the very high standards for RAF Pilots that continue to-day, however, he resigned shortly after. Sir Hugh Trenchard was later reappointed by Churchill and went on to be called the Father of The Royal Air Force. The training of an RAF Pilot is second to none.

What questions do you ask an airline pilot to find out about their job?

I’ve been given the opportunity to interview an airline pilot for my English assignment.

I am required to develop a piece of writing about a person who has an interesting aspect of his/her life. I will first interview the person and conduct any background research as required to give my story credibility.

Which commercial pilot training to take?

I have been researching to become a commercial airline pilot but I’m kind of confused, I looked in to Delta Connection Academy but after some research I have found out they are way over priced, besides getting a four year degree, which would be the best route to becoming a commercial pilot?
thinking about Embry Riddle, are they any good?
