What Does A Pilot Do?

The most well-known pilots are those who work for an airline company, flying passengers who are commuting or vacationing. Their primary responsibility is to operate the aircraft, but their day consists of many hours performing other tasks. Pilots check the weather and confirm flight plans before departing. 

They usually carry loads or do other work, such as crop spraying.

How To Become A Pilot?

Eligibility (Science Stream, PCM); Entrance Examination IGRUA (Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi)

Usually, cadet selection programs do not require a diploma to apply.

On the one hand, candidates

  • Must be at least 18 years old,

  • Have knowledge of English and a

  • Private pilot certificate.

Pilot selection usually consists of several stages:

  • Online Applications

  • Proficiency Tests

  • Mathematics Tests

  • Interview

  • Group Exercises

  • Simulator Evaluation.

The importance of full training, licensing and certification should be emphasized. The pilot should also be familiar with flying various types of aircraft.

Regional aviation is a training ground for commercial airline pilots. This gives them an opportunity to extend flight hours and qualify for a larger fleet of aircraft. The search for aviation schools nearby is one of the first steps. There is no faster or cheaper way to become a commercial pilot.

There are many ways to get a certificate, including the type of aircraft you can study. Training in an aeroplane with a rear wheel, such as LETU, is more difficult than in other places. Errors can be more easily identified, enabling more accurate and safer training. You must know your weaknesses before you take on responsibility.

A practical test is proof that you meet the standards of a professional pilot. As for emergency measures, a simulated engine failure test can be expected. You may also be tested on the emergency operation of some aircraft systems.

A large number of candidates are rejected due to lack of Experience. Remember that the pilot needs at least 250 hours to obtain a commercial license. It is not possible to find work with aircraft without a commercial pilot license.
