Pilot + Training License
A pilot’s job is to fly and navigate airplanes, helicopters, and other aircraft. Their duties include checking the overall condition of the aircraft before and after every flight; communicate with air traffic control over the aircraft’s radio system; operate and control aircraft along planned routes and during takeoffs and landings; and monitor engines, fuel consumption, and other aircraft systems during flight.
To become an airline pilot, you will need to be able to follow spoken instructions from air traffic control and give clear, confident instructions to crew members and passengers. Teamwork skills is important, as well as good written communication skills. You must be comfortable working with technology and be able to read maps and 3D displays. The ability to remain calm when dealing with challenging situations such as changing weather conditions, is imperative.

To obtain a pilot’s license, the candidate needs to pass a medical examination – class 2 for a PPL and class 1 for CPL.
