Re: The Dumbing Down of the Pilot Job

Interesting post Nidata, but from a commercial student perspective I reckon its a bit negatively charged. Ive just completed a module in HRM and your post lacks at least one fundamental principle in respect of HR and training, that of goal orienatated motivation! Are you in the airline industry? Unl...

Not exactly on the same subject but a question on doing your PPL in the US. Was wondering how the licences are issued, i.e. does the school issue you with a certificate of a pass and you then apply to your home state (IAA) for the actual licence? The process is much the same as far as I remember it...

In my experience time to solo is very much individualistic and I reckon that it mainly depends on relative experience or how predisposed you are to certain factors that assist in initial training when progressing to solo such as understanding the machine, and say for example, you had experience with...

Haven't noticed it myself but if you perceive rudeness as a regular thing then it may be no harm to question rationally if there is some sort of problem by phoning the tower afterwards, would clear up any misunderstanding! For folk at both ends of the PTT button, its a job which can be heavily taxin...

Ive a FW rating but taken a few lessons with different heli instructors and they all hammer awareness into their students when operating near other aircraft and, in general, a good operating practice... after all- they are high performance machines which cost a shed load of money. I'm sure, of cours...

Hi Agusta,

I'll create an account on photobucket and send you the details as an alternative to e-mail, might be a better option if your project is urgent.

Its essential to encourage enthuasists within some membership capacity i.e associate and amalgamate them into the organisation adequately especially, moreover, if they have some relevant professional experience which may assist in achieving NASRAvs objectives, but I think the argument for drawing a ...

I think OW hit the nail on the head for a rotorcraft add on here but it seems to be much the same as the States, I was told you can get a dispensation of 10% of your TT or a max of 6 hours allowed off the minimum 45 bringing it to 39hrs min. If your training here and havn't taken the IAA exams then ...
