To begin your career as a pilot in United States you need a good flight school to receive flight training to fulfill the specialized demands of the airline industry. Ask flight schools these questions and you will save yourself time, frustration and several thousand dollars!
The Aviator Flight School
- Do all of your instructors follow the same written curriculum? Standardization is the way airlines train and fly. If you don't have a curriculum to follow how will you know what to study for on the next lesson? If there isn't a standard curriculum, and another instructor has to fill in, will they teach the same way? A WRITTEN CURRICULUM CAN SAVE YOU THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN WASTED TRAINING TIME
- What do I have to buy as a student? The three books from the FAA you can download for free from the internet. Maps and plotters are low cost items. Any flight school that wants you to buy their "kit" is selling you something at 40-50% above cost. All you need is a logbook and one map to start. A good flight school will loan you a headset for free at least until you solo.
- Do you fly with all landing and taxi lights on? The FAA several years ago, asked all flight training schools in the LA Basin to participate in a voluntary program called "LIGHTS ON". Your chances of being hit on the road or in the air drop by up to 400% if you have your headlights on. If a flight school is more worried about the cost of a landing light than your safety run away.....
- Do you offer financing? Aviation is a very achievable goal. One of the biggest factors that prevent the dream from happening is the expense of aviation education. Although flight training cost can be expensive and time consuming, the choices flight training students make can reduce the flight training costs and will not deter them from making their dream of becoming a pilot a reality.
Applying for grants can help to defray these costs, and, unlike loans, you do not need to repay a grant.
