Nobody wants to do anything in which he has little chances of success. That includes flight training. If you don’t plan on succeeding or gaining your private pilot certificate, then you should stop right where you are because you’re just throwing money at your training if you have no definite goal in mind.
Now, if you want to achieve success, then you have do some things during your flight training. There are steps or actions that you should take to ensure or at least increase your chances of achieving success with your flight training.
Take Advantage of Your Student Pilot Days
The student pilot days are actually the best days of your pilot life. It is here that you can fly without worrying because most of the times you have your instructor to watch your back. That is why you should take full advantage of this period. Take in all that your instructor teaches you to heart, and use every flight session to learn as much as you could about the craft you’re trying to master.
Always Get Your Instructor’s Feedback
If you think just walking away after every flight session is enough because there is ground school, you are mistaken. As a student pilot, you have an unspoken responsibility to yourself to get the necessary feedback from your instructor so you will know where and which parts of your flight training you have to improve yourself in.
Complement Flight School With Home Study
You can learn just about anything related to your private pilot certificate at the school with your instructor. However when you take lessons, your sessions are limited by the amount of time available to you. That is why self studying should be part of your off-school activities as you can learn a few things from self studying that you wouldn’t learn from a school due to the lack of sufficient time.
