1. What are the common issues you see during simulator training?
Some of the issues we witness can be found above, but other notable issues can stem from an over-eagerness to impress. Students that are keen to excel in the simulator can sometimes try to point score against their peers, or fail to listen, and therefore fail to comprehend essential teaching points. These behaviours do not reflect well on the candidate and will be picked up by a pilot recruiter during a simulator or group assessment.
1. Research the industry
Before you decide if you want to become a pilot, it is important to research the realities behind this career path. Try to immerse yourself within the aviation world. You can do this by visiting different airfields and airports, and researching the flight schools who provide your desired training programme – most flight schools offer a tour around their campus where you can visit the environment you would be training in and ask any important questions you may have. Try to attend careers shows such as Pilot Careers Live, visit school comparison sites such as Pilot Network and subscribe to lots of aviation news blogs; this will help you to stay on top of all the current issues and trends within the world of aviation. You could also book a ‘Trial Flying Lesson’ to experience what it’s really like to be in control of an aircraft.
