How To Become A Pilot

How to become a pilot can be done in different ways. To become a privat pilot with a private pilot license is often the best way to start. You can then take extra courses if you would like to become ie. an airline pilot. For a private pilot license you must pass a theoretical and practical test.

Young Pilots, Big Dreams

"It was a moment where I was like…"Wow!". I definitely want more of this!"

That was what came to mind when Goh Si Qing from Victoria Junior College first took to the skies in a single-engine monoplane. She is one of two female students who have successfully completed the flying course conducted by the Singapore Youth Flying Club. The other is Tessar Goh from Temasek Polytechnic.

The two aspiring female aviators went through close to a year of rigorous flying training to earn their Private Pilot License issued by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore.

Hear what both have to say about their experience and what they had to overcome to achieve their dream of flying.

First Solo Flight | Student Pilot | HD GoPro | Cockpit & Radio/Com Audio

No Comments

This was my first solo flight as a student pilot on 8-15-13. I've heard stories of instructors surprising the student with their first solo. This was planned. I knew I was coming to the airport to solo this day. (I was at 14 hrs). First we did 3 touch and goes in the pattern together.. I completely greased the last one.. Felt great! Then the training wheels came off (when I dropped Dennis off at the terminal).

I was nervous. I won't lie. It really was like the first time you take off on a bicycle when you're a little kid; when your parents let go of you.. you have fear at first.. then you realize "Hey, I got this!". I'll never ever forget this day.

Shot list:
Dual Landing: 00:10
First Solo Takeoff: 02:18
First Landing: 07:05
Second Landing: 08:18
Third Landing: 09:25

Thanks for watching!

BTW, I am a professional audio engineer. I pride myself in good audio mixes in my flight videos. There are probably easier ways of doing it, but i record the Com mix into my phone (using an ipad guitar input adapter) and line up with the video later.

I Passed My Private Pilot Checkride Woohoo!

Private Pilots Licence – Further Flight Training After Getting Your Private Pilots Licence

No Comments

Private Pilots Licence – Flights and further training after you gain your certificate

Whether, like me, it took you several years or just a few months to obtain your own PPL (Private Pilots License) what are you going to do now that you have your pilot’s licence?

The post PPL phase is an important time for the recently qualified pilot. You have learned to fly up to an acceptable standard but this when a new phase of learning begins.

Assuming the funds are available and you can afford to fly on a regular basis you might find yourself giving pleasure flights to friends and family until the novelty (for them) wears off. What then?

If you have not planned ahead you might find yourself flying less often. If you don’t form the habit you might stop landing away at other airfields. Without this practice your confidence will lessen and eventually your flying might be confined to short trips in the local area.

There is a risk that the fall in your confidence level may lead you to stop flying altogether. It would be a great shame to withdraw having come so far but it’s all too common for PPL holders to abandon it at this early stage.

To maintain your interest and continuity of learning, and build your confidence, set new goals. Consider the variety in aviation and stretch yourself to reach each of these objectives when you’ve built up enough confidence and ability:

Join a flying club and socialise with other aviators.
Join AOPA and enjoy hotel, fuel, and pilot supply discounts.
Join the LAA and build, maintain, or restore aircraft.
Visit other airfields. Land on grass, concrete, and tarmac.
Fly throughout the year and study the weather.
Convert to different aircraft types.
Convert to a taildragger, or vice versa.
Learn to fly vintage aircraft.
Learn to fly aerobatics and take part in amateur competitions.
Go to fly-ins and air rallies.
Take part in air races.
Fly around the UK.
Fly across water. Fly to the Channel Islands.

Fly to the continent and visit other countries. Lachlan Smart, an 18 year old Australian pilot has just flown around the world. His advice, “Don’t be afraid to dream big and when you have a goal – go for it.”

If the PPL was the first step on a professional career then you’re probably already aware of the path to further training. You may be heading for a CPL/IR, ATPL, or a Flight Instructor rating.

Pilot’s Licence – done, but the cash runs out

For any number of reasons you may find, as I did, that the money just isn’t available for flying. The Pilot’s licence had to be put aside while I took care of other responsibilities.

However, if it’s obvious that you’re hooked on aviation then you may find your Christmas and birthday wishes are fulfilled and you continue to add entries into your logbook. They may not be entries in the Pilot in Command column but you can still experience flight in all kinds of ways.

Since obtaining my PPL I have had to confine my logbook entries to dual instruction but I’ve chosen flights that are memorable due to the aircraft type and the maneouvers flown.

Harvard T6G
Extra300 – aerobatics (five times)
Piper PA-28-161
Cessna C172 – around Barbados
Cessna C172SP – glass panel
De Havilland DH82 Tiger Moth
Harvard IIB – aerobatics
Bulldog – aerobatics
