Flying IFR into new environments can be a serious challenge, particularly in busy airspace where controllers are talking nonstop, and it’s more important than ever to listen up and follow their instructions precisely. For flight in congested areas, pre-published, low-level IFR routes make both pre-flight planning and the actual flying much more straightforward and enjoyable. […]
Flying in controlled airspace offers many benefit to VFR pilots. As we know that mid-air collision sit at the top 3 reason of the aviation accident, then thinking about traffic awareness must be considered as an important aspect when flying. As a student pilot who apply for a private pilot, you must very clear about […]
It’s not how advanced your flight instrument is, size of your airplane, jet or propeller, but the “inner engine” if the very important tools to determine aviation safety. In the past decades, we know that 98% accidents were caused by the human error. There is very complex variable on the human factor which could lead […]
Commercial Pilot is the most important pilot license to start a new career in the aviation. From the dream to the reality, pilot applicant starts their flight training in many flying school around the world from traditional to the fast track program which demand high standard and consistency. However, no matter which program you take […]
Hypoxia means reduced oxygen or not enough oxygen. Although any tissue will die if deprived of oxygen long enough, usually the most concern is with getting enough oxygen to the brain, since it is particularly vulnerable to oxygen deprivation. Any reduction in mental function while flying can result in life-threatening errors.
Turbulence Potentially hazardous turbulence is present in all thunderstorms, and a severe thunderstorm can destroy an aircraft. Strongest turbulence within the cloud occurs with shear between updrafts and downdrafts. Outside the cloud, shear turbulence has been encountered several thousand feet above and 20 miles laterally from a severe storm. A low-level turbulent area is the […]
Controlled Airspace is a generic term that covers the different classifications of airspace (Class A, B, C, D and E airspace) and defined dimensions within air traffic control service is provided to IFR flights and to VFR flights in accordance with the airspace classification. Definitions: Class A Airspace – Generally that airspace from 18,000 feet […]
