If you love heights and you simply can’t ignore the satisfaction flying can give you then enrolling in flight training is a solid choice. Basically, if you want to be a pilot someday, you have to undergo excessive flight training and proper schooling in an accredited flight school. Flight training should give you the skills on how to handle, take-off, and land a very basic aircraft or glider. You will then have to go through advanced training schools to learn how to pilot large aircraft for specific training.
1. Flight regulations
Aside from the complete procedures you will undergo in a flight training, you will also be taught on areas regarding flight rules and regulations.
2. Principles of flight
Just like any professional activity, it is also important for a pilot to know the different principle in flying. This will guide them on their quest for a career in flying.
3. Medical certificate
It is important to know the needed requirements in order to start with your flight training. There is a physical requirement to be a pilot.
This refers to the proper maneuvering of the aircraft along a set course.
5. Human factors
This is to equip the trainee with proper knowledge on how human factors affect the overall flying procedure.
6. Radio Communications
Here, the student is trained on how to communicate effectively with the people situated in the control area. This is to facilitate communications with an air traffic controller so as to know the condition of the air traffic in the area.
This is also included in the flight training because it is important in understanding the conditions in mid air.
8. Flight Instruction Processes
– Preparation The basics of flight
– Advanced Flying procedures and practice flying within a certain area
– Solo Flights Must be able to fly between any of the local airports and homebase
– Specific Aircraft Advanced topics such as dead reckoning, pilotage, night flying, aeronautical charts
– Certification Exam required

* Types of Cloud – Meteorology for training Pilots
The study of meteorology is important to a pilot as weather is an issue that affects not only aircraft performance but also flight safety. In this CD we will examine basic met theory enabling you to develop an understanding of the principles involved and how weather can affect your flying activities. A sound knowledge of the theories behind meteorology will help you, as a pilot, to make good decisions based on the forecasts and reports available.

Cloud classification – Meteorology for training Pilots
Clouds are formed in Earth’s atmosphere when water evaporates into vapor from oceans, lakes, ponds, and even streams and rivers; or by evapotranspiration over moist areas of Earth’s land surface. The vapor rises up into colder areas of the atmosphere due to convective, orographic, or frontal lifting. The water vapor attaches itself to condensation nuclei which could be anything from dust to microscopic particles of salt and debris. Once the vapor has been cooled to saturation, the cloud becomes visible. All weather-producing clouds form in the troposphere, the lowest major layer of the atmosphere. However very small amounts of water vapor can be found higher up in the stratosphere and mesosphere and may condense into very thin clouds if the air temperatures are sufficiently cold. One branch of meteorology is focused on the study of nephology or cloud physics.
