Introduction to Pilot Training
Being Pilot is one of the best experience one can have in his/her life. It is also one of the most respected and rewarding job in the present times. Your decision to become a professional pilot may be one of the most important decisions you ever make. Most pilots would agree that once having taken the step to learn to fly, it is a decision they never regret.
Apart from being a Pilot, you will have a Globally recognized skill that will land you a job in any part of the world with much ease. The Aviation Industry is growing big every single day. According to the latest data they will need 50, 000 new Pilots in the next five years to fill the gap. There was no other better time in the history than today to be a pilot.
Choosing Your Flying School
Learning to fly can be one of life’s most rewarding adventures. The freedom of moving in three dimensions is not only fun but can lead to interesting career and travel opportunities. To take advantage of aviation’s rewards, you must make sure you get the good, solid information that you’ll need to be a safe, confident pilot in the air. One of the most important steps in that process is finding the right flight school.
Without any aviation experience on which to base your decision, selecting a good school can be a formidable task. Aviation is procedural and not well suited to impatience. Whether you’re flying or picking a school, making rash, hurried decisions can cause dire consequences.
At NorthFACE, we focus on providing you the assured guidance ensuring that you not only have the qualifications but also the skills, character and qualities to achieve it. Your future is what you make of it. We are here to provide you the tools.
Together we will make your dreams come true.
Female pilots have a long pioneering history in the aviation industry and have made many significant contributions. More and more women are now entering the industry and embarking on successful careers as pilots. It has now become a boast for many airlines that they have “all female flight crews!”
With the ever increasing demand for pilots and the greater acceptance of the role of women in many countries, now is a fantastic time for more females to make their mark and get into the airline industry. We encourage more young women to get into this exciting and rewarding career and will ensure that you are provided with the skills and experience to get the flying start you need to succeed.
