Just when you thought the ground school and study process was complete you will find yourself back in the classroom. This ground school is different in that it explores the practicalities of being a successful and safe professional pilot.
In preparation for the examinations you learnt about the law and instrument flight procedures. Now we will explore these areas from a practical perspective combining detailed and extensive briefing with simulator lessons.
As mentioned earlier at Durban Aviation Centre we believe in thorough preparation before stepping into the aircraft and the forty plus lessons that form phase four of the training are designed to do just that.
The flights on the simulator are designed to be as comprehensive as possible developing skills such as procedural instrument approaches, CRM, engine and fuel management, instrument flying and radio/ATC factors to name a few. Good preparation here will allow for a smooth transition into the aircraft.
Extensive briefing on law and in particular low visibility procedures and Instrument Procedural law prepare the student for the real world. During this phase of training the student will be expected to prepare a ‘project’. This project will be presented to the examiner at the flight test and will include preparation for an international IF flight and all the paperwork and planning that goes with it. What sets Durban Aviation Centre apart from other flight schools is this attention to detail and preparation of pilots for the real world.
