Number 5: Top Ten Tips on

Becoming a Good Pilot 



#5. Be a Polyglot Dangerously

“Everybody speaks English, why more?” – Absolute rubbish! There is no job other than piloting that you sell yourself more than your employer! That’s because it’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle (read #10). Employers sell new aircraft and passenger experiences, though that’s only 40%. You are a spirit, even when not flying – you still are a British Airways ambassador whilst on a supermarket buying a can of milk!

Becoming a Good Pilot! 



#6. Joining the Air Force 
is a Great Opportunity!

At the end of training, a pilot for the air force is part of a very special society of aviators. You become a top notch pilot representing your country! You will learn to be disciplined, how to study and get fit. You will be ready for any obstacle that will come at you! Concerned that it won’t be easy? Easy is a choice. Live easy and you will live the same life 72 times in a year and still call it a life! This should’ve been a #1 tip!

Beyond Silence


A Gift to the world by a very talented lady... Thank you Heather!
 
BEYOND SILENCE

One day when I was twelve,
while my hand on throttle quivered,
plucky youth turned her trick
and pulled me swiftly upward.

Quickly past the ground below,
pied crops, soft leaning wheat,
she beat the air below my wings
and swept me off my feet.

I slipped between the tangled wafts,
pushed beyond green mountain’s brim
then drifted over ocean silent,
cradled in a whisper’s hem.

Returning to the heavy earth,
where every movement seemed to hasten,
I promised her my heart forever
but flight, I learned, is no fair tradesman.

Longing now, forever more,
to lift beyond so sweetly
but weighted, burdened, here on earth
how the many birds I envy.

Rough or smooth just take me there,
that place beyond the rush,
where angels soften death’s alarm 
where all, at last, is peaceful. Hush.

#7. Get fit. Stay fit. Until you flab at age 80
OMG! This is SO important! It has EVERYTHING to do with aviation. A NexGen AvGeek must be fit. Swim, run for 2.5KM in 12 minutes, go to the gym, inject loads of oxygen in to that brain and eat healthy! You’ll look handsome and attractive, but that’s only a consequence. If your body and brain are healthy, you are fit to absorb millions of tons of information during your studies and still be effective! Plus, you’ll be fit to work under pressure without losing focus and keep on high alert during all stages of flight!

Number 8: Top 10 Tips on

Becoming a Good Pilot!



#8. Gear Yourself as if You are Going to Afghanistan

If you can, do it. Show some respect to yourself and to what you love. It can also mean you are very self-aware. Pilots are ready for anything and do expect the worst in any case scenario! Dress as if you’re going to prom night (well, like a pilot!), fly hard, study hard, have all piloting tools in your flight case (and a bit more), know how to plan – seriously, work on your planning skills and have all possible solutions in hand (numerically and not) – and stay READY for the next flight on your Piper Cub (Oh! Sorry! Is it a Cirrus?).

#9. Think Global. Literally. 

You fancy all social networks and hold the most powerful phone ever. Well, let’s connect then! Create and join aviation groups, spread the word and meet the hustlers who pioneer in the industry from different parts of the globe! Join congresses and be part of societies, where you can share your knowledge and learn from the experiences of those who grind!

#10. Don’t go for the BUCK$

If you want this because you see yourself in a Bentley, captain of an Emirates B777 at 25 years old, you better stop right here. Have you ever heard about CRM with emphasis on anti-terrorism or even asked yourself why you have aptitude for a global airline? Better, have you ever thought on not receiving a single penny while flying madly for months?
